"Racism -- like this anti-Semitic Qaddafi as moneybags -- is not really prevalent in traditional American graffiti. But if everyone's making jokes about Qaddafi and money, that's how the artist is going to paint him, because it'll get a rise out of people. Still, this is beautifully rendered by an artist. To me, this is one of the more traditional graffiti walls that you would see in any city from Paris to London to New York -- except it's in a much crazier, crazier place."
