During an interview with Vice, Hill said the project is commenting on people’s ideas of race and status.
“Well, there are people who see certain races as status symbols, and someone had to comment on that,” he said. “I wanted to find another way to come at that. I guess it’s the same kind of satirical, tongue-in-cheek approach that I like to take with things. I like to talk about something serious but do it in a lighter, kind of a goofy way. ”
Hill has a history of grabbing attention with his comments on race. In November 2011, he caused a stir on the Harlem streets when he donned whiteface and posed as“The White Ambassador.”
NEW YORK (AP) — Maya Angelou, who first met Nelson Mandela in the early 1960s, praised him as a great man worthy of comparison to another icon she knew — the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
“Our planet has lost a friend,” Angelou said Friday during a telephone interview with The Associated Press. She was living in Egypt with a South African activist when Mandela visited them. She remembered him as handsome and funny and unusually generous with compliments, able to get along with the varying groups of political opponents to South Africa’s apartheid regime. He was imprisoned in 1964, but their friendship resumed in the 1990s after his release.
Angelou learned of Mandela’s death Thursday just hours after she heard of another friend’s passing. “This is a very heavy time,” she said sadly.
