Primitive – IF
This image was created after visiting South America. While I was there, I distinctly remember, tourists stating that there were still “primitive people” to see in the jungle. Every time I heard it, I cringed inside. I absolutely despise the term, “primitive” when it is associated with people or their culture!
Yes, I know that some folks don’t mean any harm when they use the term when referencing people, and I try to take in consideration, ignorance, age difference, cultural exposure, etc. But it still gives me a burn and leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
Anyhow, I created this piece after visiting the beautiful forest areas in South America and enjoying all the children, I met along the way. They were like all children all over the world, simply beautiful.
Happy Week and try to expose yourself to new environments and people and remember to leave your judgements at home!
