  1. Although, not specifically about the art of Kameelah, I was really interested to read this article on Hyperallergic. As the art world has become so global, it is very disheartening to see this continual discrimination against people in our country and beyond. I really enjoyed this specific statement: “Rasheed feels that she’s been marketed in the media as a type of “perfect victim. They’re like, ‘She’s a Fulbright scholar, she’s an artist and a Stanford graduate, an American citizen, and she was treated like this.’ It doesn’t matter if I worked at McDonald’s and just recently immigrated from Bangladesh, I should not have been treated like this.” She should not have been treated like that.
