Street art mural stirs racial row in Boston

A mural by Os Gemeos the Brazilian street artists , installed in Boston as part of their first US solo show at the Institute of Contemporary Art, has drawn some divisive comments and stirred up debate about cultural understanding. People think the red jacket wrapped around the boys head is being raciest towards Mooselims since it some what resembles a "Towel Head". Many support the art saying good art drawls attention and it has nothing to do with Mooselims. The artist says “We don’t really want to explain the meaning of this,We let people imagine things.” In my opinion this painting is just a good piece of art with people giving it their own meaning , but i dont think it was intended to be raciest.
