Racism ... IV by =aksdareflection Using simple everyday items and the most minimal of scenes, the photographer has created a striking image with a clearness of message that could not be matched. ( Suggested by Voracious-Vixen and Featured by Pete-B )

This is so beautiful. The way you've positioned it, it's as if the unburnt matches are ignoring the burnt one, and the burnt one is looking down, silent in it's sadness. Bravo.

I would love to use this picture in a class project I'm doing on some of the issues of racism today. Would you be okay if I used it? It is a beautiful piece that really says it all in one simple frame

It's funny because the black stick is burned and useless. :I

Can you smell the irony yet?

What is even more ironic is that all the match sticks will end up burnt and useless. So what you fail to see is this is really about age discrimination.

But the title says Racism. Naturally the viewer would look for a racial message (i.e. color). If you really want it to be about age discrimination now, you should change the title.

this is the best of the series, because the tones compliment very well, the structure is clear and it's very simple. also, matches represent humans the best :)

Hmm I see this one as more of a discrimination against those with physical deformities or going more into lookism. (?)
Very nice idea.
