Police State

With the release of this line, two of our designs, Bite of Crime and Caution Boston, have been getting a lot of attention over their subject matter. The police are a ubiquitous site in this city, especially in the hood where their heaviest presence has the least impact on the devasting problems of youth violence, guns and drugs in our communities. In many ways their relationships with communities of color remain the same as in the days of slavery when they kidnapped and captured runaways and free Blacks alike, sending them into forced labor and captivity. Malcolm X explains this perfectly:

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

~ George Santayana
