Okay, I should have guessed it was yours - it was actually my favorite from the challenge - mostly because it fit the challenge and it WASN'T subtle.
Plus, I just thought it was a really cool picture.

Good concept, good composition. Doesn't really grab me, though. Probably would with more contrast and having the lighting be brighter on the black head. I also think it'd work better with the black head sharper than the rest; while I'm not normally distracted by minor stuff, the sharp ones on the left do pull my eye over there.

I also struggled a bit with the title, but decided it was a wry commentary on racists, not an offensive title in itself.

In a free study, I probably would've voted this a 4, which for me means "nice try, some quality problems and not grabbing me." But in this challenge in particular, where people seemed to struggle to both have a solid concept and execute it, I'm voting it a 6.

Great concept - really odd focusing!

I think an innuendo could have worked, but your title might be a bit too obviously racial - which I would imaging may hurt you. A title like "what am I doing here?" might have been more appropriate. Still, I enjoy it enough.
