Artist Lester Merriweather's WHITE(S) ONLY takes the opportunity to reexamine certain aspects of the history of “whiteness” in the United States from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present. Comprised of 25 works, the exhibition elaborates the themes, beliefs, and passions that have concocted America’s ideologies in it’s struggle to deal within and against established institutions, often directly engaging their social contexts. Several pieces that have never been shown before appear as renditions of beloved (to some) icons in a conscious effort to unsettle assumptions about America’s racial climate. WHITE(S) ONLY constitutes a kind of collective memory—one that represents a range of conflicting attitudes toward what America might represent to some as well as what that representation means to/for others. By simultaneously mining and questioning our past, we do not arrive at a comprehensive conclusion, but at a moment ripe with new questions for all to consider. WHITE(S) ONLY will be on view at The Fogelman Galleries of Contemporary Art at the University of Memphis Room 200 Arts & Communication Bldg in conjunction with The Attendant by Hamlett Dobbins through September 25, 2015.

Americans hate (alleged) rapists and donut-lickers — according to new polling data from Q Scores. The company polls Americans on their opinions about things like brands and celebrities and has just released its latest round of data concerning famous people.
The Q Scores are collected bi-annually and are best known for their popularity rating — how well-liked, for example, a certain celebrity is among Americans — but they also includes a “negative” rating, which measures unpopularity.
Bill Cosby and Ariana Grande come in at No. 1 and No. 2 for having the biggest dislike rating right now.
No surprise, Bill Cosby comes out on top of the list, with Ariana Grande at No. 2. One of them has been accused of dozens of sexual assaultsstretching back decades; the other is a young woman who once licked doughnuts and said she hated America. (Dr. Oz, Robin Thicke, and Adrian Peterson rounded out the top five.) Grande saw a 26-point bump in her disapproval rating, while Cosby’s jumped 43 points — about twice as much. Neither Cosby nor Grande’s overall disapproval ratings came close to those of Kim Kardashian (71 points) or Justin Bieber (63 points).

Hey Myron, I don't think I love my wife anymore!! Now
don't get me wrong, I do care for her a great deal, but the truth is the
"fire" is gone. You see when we first met I couldn't keep my hands
off of her. She had me so gone Myron. I'm talking baby was BAD! Shaped like a
Coke bottle, ass like a Georgia peach and her hair was always on
point. But after we said "I do" she just let herself go.
asked her on several occasion to "spice it up/ switch it up" but her
response is "we're married." Well Myron, I've recently found myself
thinking and dreaming about other women especially one co- worker. Myron this
chick is the truth (36-24-36). She's single, no kids and has the prettiest lips
I've ever seen. Look, if my wife doesn't shape up I'm shipping out! Help a
brother out! -Ready to Bounce
Hey Ready to Bounce, don’t
say you don’t love her anymore, because you know that’s not true. You do SO love her. You’re
just in a slump right now and the fire has dissipated a little bit. Every
marriage suffers “lulls” every now and then. It’s easy to get caught up in the
everyday routine of everyday life. And by the time it’s get down to the two of
you, all of the energy has been used for other things. But you have to fight
said you’ve asking HER to spice it up, but what are you really asking her to
do? Does she know? Have you given her any ideas?
things may need to be spiced up a bit. However, someone has to be the one to
take charge and make things happen. Why not you? Don’t wait on her! Take the
lead! You got to be that one to bring that fire back in your marriage!
as for this lady on your job…really bro?
think she looks fine and all, but she could come with a set of issues of her
own. Everybody has their own issues. But right now, you know exactly what you
have at home. And although you’re interested in this lady, you didn’t even say
that this woman was interested in you. But, you’re ready to throw away your
marriage for her? Right now it looks like this chick is just a guess and a
fantasy. This is not really making any sense to me.
you make a bad move, here is my advice. Come back down to earth! Shift your
focus back to your wife. Do things to encourage her to spice it up. Get her up
and out of the house! Really make a conscious effort to get the fire back!
go somewhere you’ve never been and do something you’ve never done! Sometimes,
you have to get out of your normal environment and focus on each other while
leaving the stressful aspects of your life behind. This will do wonders. Try
it, youll be surprised!
