An interesting example of Tagging…graffiti… it sure ain’t no Banksy!
And I can assure you that if it was, someone would have had it away by now!
Gitan is the masculine singular of the French word describing Gypsies.
Gitains ( plural ) is the feminine version …depicted as a tambourine wielding dancer on the well-known cigarette box.
Who knows the people in the background may well be gypsy-folk, foraging for sea shells to furnish castanets.
However, the message on the bench ( which my local French taxes paid to have maintained ) is clear.
This is race-hate, ethnic-minority hate, a semi permanent analogue version of the type of hatred that far-right activists spread on social media like a cancer.
But the multi-billion dollar media providers such as Twitter and the like, have the power and the wherewithal to take such digital hate mongering material down, before the insensitive amongst us, who do not have the savvy to realise that perpetuating this venom serves only to instigate more hatred, are joining in the finger clicking frenzy.
Luckily our world leaders, those with the power and resources at their finger tips; those who tower above us in stature have the intelligence, research capabilities and aids to stop this ghastly chain of evil in its tracks.
I mean anyone in their right minds would realise this,wouldn’t they?
After all. Race riots and WW3 may only be one click away.
