risky discussion

Part 2 of the Simon Schama documentary has, in my opinion a racist undertone. A few commentators highlight the Jewishness of both Rothko and Schama. Some of posts have been removed.

The tone of the post conversations matches in part Schama's reflection on the socioeconomic, political and racist conditions in Russia - Rothko emigrated when he was a boy.

In total 59 comments were made for this post, however some of the posts are repeated several times in the listings (technical error?)  and it is not always clear who is commenting on what.

Here how the community guidelines are applied is a fine balance between offensive remarks and the freedom of expression.

Many posts are characterised by heightened reflexivity, self-scrutiny and self-consciousness
