身為黑人不是一種罪!街頭品牌推出 T-Shirt 為 George Floyd 聲援!

最近美國 George Floyd 被四名警察虐待致死的案件鬧得沸沸揚揚,引起了全世界的熱議,而街頭品牌Freshjive的主理人Rick Klotz向來喜歡通過自己的設計來表達自己的想法。日前Freshjive推出了一款新的T-Shirt來向這一事件表態,衣服正面印有黑人戴上手銬的圖案,並配文「BLACK IS NOT A CRIME」,為黑人所受到的不公正待遇發聲。Klotz表示這件Tee其實早在兩年前就已經做好,但是因為Freshjive的運營緣故一直被拖延,直到最近的事件發聲,他覺得不能再等了,便發布了這件Tee。當時就決定這次產品的100%收入都會捐獻給Equal Justice Initiative組織,用來幫助幫助那些被大規模監禁和過度懲罰的有色人種。Freshjive「BLACK IS NOT A CRIME」T-Shirt現已上架官網,售價40美元(約台幣1200元),給想要貢獻力量的朋友提供一個渠道。

“We designed this T shirt almost 2 years ago. We had even produced it, but with the overwhelming amount of effort in structuring the return of Freshjive, we had the release on pause. The decision to contribute the proceeds was even decided at the time as well, as I’ve been a huge admirer of Bryan Stevenson from EJI and his lifelong commitment to justice for people illegally convicted, unfairly sentenced, or abused in state jails and prisons (some very concise interviews with him on Bill Moyers old interview show. Check em sometime). Then recently @barringtondarius clued us into @pinksiifu and his recent Negro album and particularly his SMD track. A very heavy piece of emotional music that inspired us to get the T project out. It wasn’t timed with anything. Unfortunately any date of release isn’t far from coinciding with a death at the hands of the law, a riotous injustice, or the constant ongoing unequal treatment people of color endure in this country’s legal system” – RMK #wtfirgo
