Everyone is aware of the social injustices in our country. Black/Brown men and women are dying at the hands of those who are supposed to protect them and as a people are TIRED.
MLK, Jr said it plain as day in his speech, “The Other America”:
“ I think America must see that riots do not develop out of thin air. Certain conditions continue to exist in our society which must be condemned as vigorously as we condemn riots. But in the final analysis, a riot is the language of the unheard.
And what is it that America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the Negro poor has worsened over the last few years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met.
And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice, equality, and humanity. And so in a real sense our nation’s summers of riots are caused by our nation’s winters of delay. And as long as America postpones justice, we stand in the position of having these recurrences of violence and riots over and over again. Social justice and progress are the absolute guarantors of riot prevention.”
I didn't remember that quote from MLK but, I love it on the Tee. Your Tees are sparking much interest here on the South Side of Chicago. Thank you for your excellent workmanship and your many excellent quotes.
You cant beat Empowered Tees for quality/comfy shirts and this message is SO TIMELY. Caused me to go back to the original speech and READ. Love this company and their products!
I like all my shirts from Patrick and Shamere. They always fit well and feel good. This is my first shirt with such a strong message. I felt it was important that I stood with my community but also leave the door open for conversation.
I purchased this t-shirt with the cut at the check....OMG! The fit was amazing. I ordered a 2XL and this is the best fitting t-shirt I have ever ordered!! It was long (which is good to cover my behind) and wide (enough to cover some other areas) in a good way. The material was soft and not stiff. Who knew you could cut the neck of the shirt and get such a different look?!?! I am so happy this was an option, as I love the way it was pictured (which is partially why I bought it) online. I haven't washed it yet, however I am sure it will do fine. I look forward to purchasing more shirts from this company. I am pleased.
