    Great article, looking forward to the rest in the series. I’m curious if the author has any thoughts on the Dana Schutz *Open Casket* painting from the 2017 Whitney Biennial. From what I recall, the author is white, but the painting is a depiction of Emmett Till’s open casket…prompting debate over, in Zadie Smith’s words, “who owns black pain.” An immensely complicated issue that I’ve been trying to wrap my head around for some time.

    PS: Go Scots.
