I wonder if the Mr. Micheal Anderson who posted the two comments above is the same one who engaged in a flaming war with forum members of the site Regretsy, including yours truly, over a post featuring his "art". He also went over to another site that made a post on the same "art" piece, where he proceeded to cuss out the publisher of that blog. The work of "art" in question was a "butt necklace" with a picture of Jesus that covered the wearers anus and which he was trying to sell for the "reasonable" price of $60.00. Here are a couple of links to the posts where this person goes back and forth with the author of the blog:
Mr. Anderson posted under the name Souleclothes during those exchanges. Albeit I'm not sure if the individual here and there are the same, the pretentious tone seems very similar.
So If the work and fowl language featured in the links I just provided are indeed the work of the same Mr. Anderson, I'd like to ask him a question.
Is the "butt necklace" something you call art? And if you indeed have a solid background as an artist and educator, why go overboard with the name calling over an item whose very nature and poor execution invites public ridicule and mocking?
As an art professor working in an inner city public school for gifted children, my heart aches for whatever children Mr. Anderson ends up "teaching". Also, as an African American gay male, I cry for my people. Mr. Anderson doesn't represent the African American nor the gay community, although he seems vocal enough to leave a negative impression in the minds of those who already fear us. I also recall him stating he was from Chicago on our previous cyber-bully exchanges, so apparently he just recently moved to Georgia. As an Atlanta native, I have to wonder why he'd move to the bastion of a thriving, progressive black community, given that our community's ideas are contrary to the stereotypical attitudes he has communicated in various internet forums, which are usually public. I also wonder what educational institution would grant an M.A let alone an M.Ed to somebody who suffers from paranoid self delusions of grandeur, like Mr. Anderson seems to do. Unless Everest College has gotten into the business of granting post graduate degrees, I highly doubt Mr. Anderson can prove any of the achievements to which he lays claim (i.e. Teacher, Artist, Graphic designer, etc.) Success in these fields sually require a modicum of talent, common sense and intelligence. Mr. Micheal Anderson surely lacks all of these and more.
