Potent minimalist art sends a strong message about police and vigilante brutality in America

Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.

Let us not forget their voices

PREHISTORIC SHARK: MEGALODON

Megalodon is an extinct species of shark that lived 1.5 million years ago and as you can probably tell from the above pictures it was HUGE, here are some few facts

  • It’s teeth were over 7 inches long
  • It’s bite can deliver from 10.2-18.6 tons of force, enough to crush a prehistoric whale’s skull like a grape
  • It feasted on prehistoric whales, dolphins, squids, fish, and even giant turtles 
  • It’s fossils have been found all over the world
  • No one knows why it went extinct

That last fact is the scariest fact

If you rape someone, it doesn’t matter that you’re only 16.

If you rape someone, it doesn’t matter that you cry like a child in court.

If you rape someone, it doesn’t matter that you had a promising future.

if you rape someone, it doesn’t matter that your life is destroyed.

If you rape someone, it should haunt you for the rest of your life. 

You raped someone. 

You deserve every ounce of justice we can place upon you in court of law.

I was at the store today and I felt something tugging on my shirt and I turned around to find a little girl, probably 5 or 6, looking up at me. I knelt down and asked her if everything was okay and in the softest voice she said “I think your shirt is very pretty” and I smiled and said thank you and told her I liked hers too. Her mom turned the corner and picked her up and told her that she’d been looking everywhere for her. Pointing at me, the little girl said “Mommy I want to have a shirt like hers!” and her mom looked me up and down and said “Sweetheart, girls can’t wear boy clothes if they want to be a princess.” Then she put the little girl back in the cart and walked away and I was standing there thinking that this poor kids life is already so tainted by her mothers words. Don’t tell a queen that she will only ever be as good as a princess.
