'Spear saga' is about votes: iLIVE
The "spear saga" makes one think this is a way of getting sympathy votes for President Jacob Zuma.
The black artist who drew Zuma with his penis in a crutch and Archbishop Desmond Tutu's private parts for all the world to see didn't have this backlash. I don't remember discussions in the media about that painting. Was it perhaps because it was done by a black artist?
One has to ask the question: what would the furore have been if the first painting had been done by a white artist?
