Soul Food (God's Choice - Certified Organic Blackness) highlights how the commodification of foods and resources from the Carribbean & the Pacific are also a commodification of our culture and how religion dilutes the richness of our culture by subtly pushing white capitalist agendas in the name of integration into our traditions. The iconic coconut milk can brands both God's Choice & Anti-Throne to remind us of our own complicit in this commodification when we buy into religion. We are God's Choice - Black, Brown, and beautiful just the way we are.
Anti-throne is an ode to shared respect. As benches are common meeting places in the Pacific & mats are common sitting places we invite elders only in our Native tongue to sit on the bench. However, because it is a bench it must be shared - in contrast to the point of a throne.
