The text was based on street graffiti in Ferguson, Missouri during the community rebellions that followed the acquittal of police officers for the fatal shootings of African Americans in U.S. cities.  Second photo was in Cambridge, Massachusetts Porter Square bus station.  Lastest grafitti found on a bus stop cover on Hampshire St., Inman Square Cambridge on October 30, 2019. It only lasted a few hours. (See product gallery photos)
