A statement from HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN? on the occasion of their abrupt withdrawal from the Whitney Biennial, as reported by Hyperallergic:

We’re sure that we don’t need to explain how the notion of a black artist being “willed into existence” and the use of a black FEMALE body through which a WHITE male “artist” conceptually masturbates in the context of an art exhibition presents a troubling model of the BLACK body and of conceptual RAPE.

No, of course you don't need to explain, that, thing you said that doesn't need explaining.
