Before this was a continuing project, it was an idea. I designed the Trayvon Martin jersey in the summer of 2013 after a jury failed to convict his killer. The idea seemed like a one-off then. There's bitter sarcasm in the writing. The words get even more bitter a year later when I posted the design to Facebook in the aftermath of the Mike Brown killing.
Design-wise, there's a slight tweak I made in the design between August and October 2013, filling in the letters and making the trim look more realistic.
