David Goldblatt and the everyday reality of South African racism – in pictures | Art and design


David Goldblatt considered himself a documentarian rather than an artist, and the central concern of his work was apartheid. But rather than the brutal, visceral horrors, his photographs captured the apparently mundane details of daily life in a country ruled by racism, and the result is an eerie, unsettling insight into everyday moral compromise. Now, Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art presents David Goldblatt: Photographs 1948-2018 – a retrospective already commissioned when the artist died in June – that takes in the full scope of Goldblatt’s seven decades of work, from his famous series On the Mines to never-before-seen pieces from his personal archive. Here is a preview of what’s on show.

Mel B’s Ex Accuses Her of Racism, Claims She Hates African Americans


Mel B‘s ex-husband is making a slew of allegations about her, saying she has a “distaste towards African Americans” and claims she believes she is Armenian.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Stephen Belafonte and Mel B are once again lobbing shots at each other over custody of their daughter Madison. Mel B has made a number of requests and Stephen has opposed them.

But in his declaration, Belafonte makes some wild allegations about Mel B and her alleged racism — or as he put it, “distaste” — towards African Americans.

“Simply put, I believe Petitioner is simply upset that I hired an African American nanny and that Madison has African American friends when she is with me,” Belafonte says in his declaration.

He claims in one text message exchange about…

NEW YORK (JTA) — When Shais Rishon thinks of American Jewish literature, virtually no Jews of color come to mind — as characters or authors.

“We’re invisible, pretty much,” he told JTA.

As an African-American Orthodox rabbi, Rishon hopes to change that.

He recently published a semi-autobiographical novel titled “Ariel Samson: Freelance Rabbi,” under his pen name, MaNishtana. The main character, Ariel, is a 20-something black rabbi navigating life and work in the New York Jewish community while attempting to reconcile his identities.

Rishon, 36, says many of the racist experiences Ariel faces within the Jewish…
