When I think about remaking histories, I wanted to imagine a better version of American society in which black Americans are given just as much fair and equal treatment as white Americans and nothing less. This would mean taking white privilege out of the equation for good. In the case of this particular drawing, white privilege becoming nonexistent would also allow black people to receive just as many job opportunities and chances to become very successful as white people in America. Unfortunately, since this hasn’t been the case in real life, black people are often given negative stereotypes based on their race. Some non-white people have been quick to associate every black person with being poor or living in the slums. In order to fight back and subvert these stereotypes, I decided to draw a well-kept black woman who runs a very successful bakery and how she should not be underestimated because of her skin color.
