Human Rights Salute

Ein Triptychon - eine Herzensangelegenheit!

Leider immer noch und/oder wieder aktuell! In Sochi trifft es dieses Mal die Homosexuellen.


Black Power Salute (Human Rights Salute) bei den Olympischen Spielen 1968.


Die afroamerikanischen Sprinter Tommie Smith und John Carlos streckten für die Dauer der amerikanischen Nationalhymne schwarz behandschuhte Fäuste in die Luft - als Zeichen der Solidarität für die Menschen, die gegen die Apartheid in Südafrika und der Rassentrennung in den USA kämpften. Während der Siegerehrung ausgebuht, wurden beide Sprinter (unglaublich!!) von den weiteren Spielen ausgeschlossen - aber in der Welt als Helden gefeiert. Selbst der Silbermedaillist, der Australier Peter Norman wurde für das solidarische Tragen eines Olympic Project for Human-Rights-Abzeichen in Australien verunglimpft.


Peter Norman starb im Jahr 2006. Smith und Carlos waren seine Sargträger....- noch ein Grund mehr, dieses Bild zu malen.

A triptych - an affair of the heart!

Unfortunately still up to date! In sochi is the focus on homosexuality.


Black Power Salute (Human Rights Salute) at the 1968 Summer Olympics.


During the American national anthem the athletics Tommie Smith and John Carlos raised a black-gloved fist and kept them raised until the anthem had finished. Smith, Carlos and Australian silver medalist Peter Norman all wore human rights badges on their jackets.

As they left the podium they were booed by the crowd and Smith and Carlos were expelled (unbelievable!) from the games- but they were heroes around the world.


The event is regarded as one of the most overtly political statements in the history of the modern Olympic Games.


Peter Norman died 2006. Smith and Carlos were his coffin bearer... - another reason to paint this picture.

    A motivating discussion is worth comment. There's no doubt that that you need to publish more about this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but generally people do not talk about such issues. To the next! Many thanks!!

    Howdy! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask. Does running a well-established website like yours require a massive amount work? I am brand new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary every day. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
