(Edit: article is about mural but this is a previous work)

Quashie's previous work employs the "pop art" style made famous by Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, except it is imbued with overt social criticism.

There is the work titled "Black People Love Pork Because Africa is Shaped Like a Pork Chop," a stylized package of three pork chops under plastic wrap.

He butchered it too. It's supposed to be "Black people like porkchops because they're shaped like Africa"

yeah but his title is more clear -- in the xoxo version, it is ambiguous whether black people or pork chops are shaped like africa

Yes and no. Boiling the search down to a few loose key phrases and letting Google do what it do should ought to bring up something. The goog gives weight to how close together the search terms are, plus it automatically does a good job of searching for variations (synonyms/plurals/punctuation).

A search like 'black "pork chop" shape africa' ought to bring any similar memes near the top of the search result pile, but after sorting through several pages of results, this dude and xoxo are really the only relevant hits.

I heard this joke growing up. It's just one of thousands of casual nigger jokes that people toss around in the South, although granted that it's pretty arcane. I think it probably dates back quite a few decades. Who knows, maybe XO alerted him to it. But it wasn't invented here.
