Was Frida Jewish? Does it matter?

Frida Kahlo, she of beauty and strength, the proud feminist who saw painting and art as a means of expressing herself and the yearning spirit of freedom in all revolutionaries, she who bedded Trotsky and colored an evolution in vibrant shades of independence, claimed to be Jewish.

This is a fact that is little known by all except for those who seek to dispute it.

One must wonder about the motives of those who turn a blind eye to this woman's incredible work and powerful, emotive imagery and instead train their hate-filled, microscopic eyes upon her assertions of heritage.

Sleep, dear artist. Lay your head down.
