REFLECTIONS OF A(mirror)ICA

Posted on August 29, 2013 by Al Gebra

REFLECTIONS OF A(mirror)ICA is our artistic interpretation of some of the more sensitive subjects that America is currently dealing with, or has dealt with in its short history. We feel that the first step to fixing a problem is admitting that there is a problem to begin with. The designs might make some people cringe or chuckle, but the clothing will be THOUGHT PROVOKING, conversation sparking and visually entertaining. 

 

A.R.M.Y.

We see more military recruiters than college recruiters in schools in the hood so we had to let you know what ARMY really stands for: Always Recruiting Minority Youth. And the people that make the decision to go to war are usually the complete opposite.

Stats & Facts: Thanks to the No Child Left Behind Act, recruiters have access to students’ contact information, including home addresses and telephone numbers. <[#.#]>

LOOKOUT FOR THE COPS

Raekwon told us a long time ago and it still applies today. The Boys have had a long history of harassing law abiding citizens for "fitting the description", and other felonious reasons. So keep your head on the swivel and... Look Out For the Cops!

Stats & Facts: From 2009 to 2010 there were 382 fatalities linked to police misconduct in the US. <[#.#]>

INSIDE DETAIL

 
THE TAKERS

We all know our country wasn’t “discovered”, it was taken. In our version of Howard Chandler Christy’s famous depiction of the signing of the Constitution, we added our own signature style by calling a spade, a spade: our “Founding Fathers” are actually the Takers. No sugar coating going on over here. 

Stats & Facts: Our Constitution is the oldest written constitution in operation in the world. <[#.#]>

A.D.H.D.

America Deals Hella Drugs. Prescriptions for ADHD are up more than 50% in the last decade. You can either believe that the need is increasing or the greed is increasing. Big Pharma doesn’t care which you believe because they’ve got the government under their billion dollar thumb. 

Stats & Facts: In 2007 it was recorded that one person died every 19 minutes from prescription drug overdose in the US. <[#.#]>

Just because he's in a square doesn't mean he is one.
