Is knitted graffiti and yarn bombing graffiti for white people?

This first came up at the moment we first got official press in TimeOut Chicago. On the same day (or at least week) that we got a write-up, the Tribune had a front page article detailing how fines for graffiti were going up and now were involving the parents of offenders.

On one page, graffiti was condemned. On another, a white girl was getting interviewed about hers. 

We were thrilled about the press but the coincidence engraved the hypocrisy into our organization.
