With this piece, the artist attempts to engage the average person of color to the religious narrative. The idea of white Jesus with white disciples is very exclusionary and in some ways makes up for much dissent among people of color when confronted by religious rhetoric. The items on the table, (such as a pack of Backwoods, and an iPhone with World Star Hip Hop on the screen) are indicative to the culture in the black community at the time in which the artist created the piece. Depicted at the center of the table is Jesus in locs, wearing the iconic Coogi sweater made famous by the Notorious BIG.
