I first saw the Jim Crow rock a few years ago while i was passing through, i thought of it as a 'nice' landmark and had no idea of who 'Jim Crow' was, or indeed what the Jim Crow laws were. I have since moved to the Argyll area and still smile when i see this landmark. As someone who studied American history recently as part of a course i am convinced that no racial connotations can be attatched to the painting of this rock. If you look closely it could be imagined as a crow, and, with art being in the eye of the beholder, it could be imagined as many different things. As far as i am concerned the only racial connotations come from those who are looking for them and as such should look at their own belief or latent feelings. Racism has never, to my belief, been an issue in this area and maybe the people who are trying to instigate it should think ahead to the unrest they may cause. Lastly...Why, if your beliefs are so strong, are you carrying out this endevour under the cover of darkness???
