Reading, but not seeing

The work showed five grey pigeons holding up signs including one stating 'go back to Africa' towards a more colourful migratory swallow.

This Banksy mural was in the news this week after the local council at Clacton-on-Sea in Essex had it removed because of  “offensive and racist remarks”.

If I was Banksy I would be bewildered; obviously any satirical comment not spelled out, (literally), needs accompanying notes.
