Potent minimalist art sends a strong message about police and vigilante brutality in America

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.

Let us not forget their voices

Just your daily reminders:

  • Racists are a problem
  • White people are not
  • Homophobes are a problem
  • Straight people are not
  • Transphobes are a problem
  • Cis people are not
  • Sexists are a problem
  • Men are not

And most importantly,

  • Hating…

I’ve even heard racists comments from POC, homophobic comments from LGB people, transphobic comments from transgender people, and sexist comments from women. These socializations (my spell-check says that isn’t a word, but I’m using it because I just woke up and can’t find better words) are so intertwined in our society, it affects us all whether you’d like it to or not.

And anyone who is a part of a minority group and self-describes as anti-sjw…. you’re welcome for the rights you do have :/

Lmao!
How can I be racist if I work with blacks
How can I be racist if one sold me slacks
I’m not racist I’m just like you. I’m best friends with a black or two.

i’m not racist, you see, it’s just a preference
i love eastern culture and its women’s deference
the west lost its way with no room for clemency
If I love Asian women, how’s that white supremacy?

i’m not a racist, i can’t be, you see
my great grandma’s grandma was part cherokee
plus one time i got called “cracker” to my face
don’t we all bleed red? i don’t even see race…

I’m not racist, blacks just need to stop complaining
Living in the past and white people blaming
I work hard, no handouts for every little fraction
If white privilege isn’t fair, then how is affirmative action?

Now I know what I’m saying might make you feel queer,

But I swear I’m just playing devils advocate here!

If whites are to blame that means you’re blaming me,

But I’m part German and English and 1/683 Cherokee!
