This is how JKR's vocal  fanbase supports her by villifying marginslised people, and how JKR can't even be bothered to respond, let alone apologise, to a fan who point out the reality of her actions.  JKR only wants to hear from those who praise her, the rest, can be eaten by her minions.

Dr Adrienne Keene told Rowling on Twitter that “it’s not ‘your’ world. It’s our (real) Native world. And skinwalker stories have context, roots, and reality … You can’t just claim and take a living tradition of a marginalised people. That’s straight up colonialism/appropriation.”

After she spoke out on Twitter, Keene said that she had been deluged with responses, “with the typical accusations of my oversensitivity and asking if I understand that Harry Potter is fictional, and more directed hate telling me my doctorate is being misused and I’m an idiot.... 

Also worthy of note is that Rowling is known for responding directly to fan questions on Twitter, and overall being accessible to her fanbase. Despite thousands of tweets directed at her about these concerns, she has not addressed it at all. The silence is noted, and it’s deafening,” wrote Keene.

Why is it so hard to find any info on this stained glass art? Judas Iscariot, hanging from a tree, his soul 'as a baby being pulled out of his belly by satan.
It is in the Chicago Art Museaum in the medieval hall- on the opposite side of the room from where the armor and spears etc are displayed. I think it was made in the 1500's? give or take.
I have tried googling everything I can think of ("judas iscariot" + "art institute chicago", "judas iscariot" + hanging + stained glass) and so on. Tried google links and google images. Can't find a damn thing!
