Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.
This, I AM SO DONE WITH YOUR HONOR AMERICAN SPORTS! LIKE YOU’R DONE, WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE!?
Ah College Ball Season, please continue to add ammo to the deletion of Native American mascots, get out of here with your “HONOR”
OSU fans not only make fun of the Trail of Tears, but hey, what about Wounded Knee? #NotYourMascot
One of the Top Comments, Why do I read these again…”Not a fan of OSU but I pretty sure that they are not referring to the actual trail of tears. They are referring to FSU crying all the way back to Florida. People need to stop being so emotional and jump on every single thing they see.”
This weekend has marked a peak in my tolerance of this mockery. I have a feeling this football season will bring title waves to this debate. Again, continue to write your mascots and logos out of history American Sports!
The 2nd pic!! Why would anyone? OMG. American sports culture just brings out the worst
And in that bottom pic one sign says “Hands up, don’t spear.” Are they actually joking about the Ferguson protests/black youth deaths by cops, while being racist towards Ndns?? Where do you White people stop?!
"We depend a lot on the fans. You want to be well liked and you want people to want to watch you. It’s nice to have people like your work. People will come up to me and say ‘I love coming home after work and watching the show,’ or ‘You and your crew are really funny.’ I have a lot of Latina fans that come up to me and say ‘I don’t get to see a lot of Latinas on TV, so it’s really cool to see you there and really representing us.’"
