I'm assuming your shirt is related to the "Black Lives Matter" movement. So then explain black cops? So their lives matter but cops don't? But their black and a cop. Honestly I'm just really confused here.

Hoo Boy this is gonna take a bit to break down, but here goes.

The War on Drugs, originally designed as a sweeping method to combat rampant drug use, quickly devolved into a hostile takeover of predominantly black, poor, inner city neighborhoods, and drastically changed the role of the police officer in an urban setting. What was once a job about protecting a community quickly became about controlling it, and this shift created an us vs. them mentality among the black community, and within the police force.

This clips says it better than I can


Notice, both of the police officers here are black, but that doesn't change the fact that police officers are incentivized to get arrests by any means, instead of being incentivized to get arrests of high profile crimes, like rapes or murders. Instead, we have a nationwide police force prioritizing petty drug arrests so the people in charge can claim they're 'tough on crime'. Now, when you let a mentality like that control your policing for decades, its no wonder that the community your officers have been harassing for so long feel resentment towards the police, white or black.

But yeah Pep's shirt is just edgy and contrarian.

If I came across that I saw it that way or if my response seemed sarcastic it wasn't meant to be! I really wanted to understand it. I try real hard these days to understand people's thought processes then I allow myself to be a smartass/sarcastic. But it does make more sense now.

to answer your original post more directly then: no this shirt is in no way associated with BLM. it was made by a homie in los angeles. yes it is purposefully inflammatory and 'shocking' maybe but as a black man in America the conditions of my survival are predicated on being antagonistic to the state. and the police are state weapons. people have been saying FTP and ACAB long before BLM and will continue to say it after the movement. black cops are just as bad as white cops/latinx cops/asian cops etc. in my view. i don't endorse the blind murder of cops, but the shirt speaks more to the system of policing instead of an individual cop. it's a jab to those who would say 'all lives matter', which implies that black lives don't, and the system of policing which is, in my view, is in opposition to the lives of people of color.
