    Only racists call people racist.

    It always made me think of Warhol's Oxidation comment about wondering why it didn't turned green and sometimes black.

    no most people agree that the reaction to the video was stupid but most sane people realise that the American Gov acted in the correct manner. Distance yourself from the video is the right call all day long.

    Is there something wrong with being a muslim in the US?
    There's nothing at all wrong with it, and if you'll note, the Muslims living here aren't acting like animals over this issue.

    I read that he actually did, and that he has made "art" in other bodily fluids such as blood and semen too.

    To be honest, he's a photographer. He doesn't really make art in the classical sense of the word. He captures specific moments and that is what is considered the art. He doesn't literally exhibit blood and semen in an art gallery. He takes a picture of it that is meant to capture reaction. I'd understand far more if people were disgusted by him literally grabbing a jar of piss sticking a cross in it and that being shown at a museum. However, that's not the case. They're photographs meant to make people think. Not the literal objects being sold at galleries.
