Black Lives Matter.

Black Lives Matter.

Black Lives Matter | EMPTY BAMBOO GIRL

That is all. Full stop.

If you find the statement to be political or controversial, then you’ve got an issue to deal with – racism.

Here’s a Chinese translation of Black Lives Matter which I had my auntie review and give the thumb’s up on: 黑人的命也是命. It roughly translates to “Black peoples’ lives are lives too.”

I’ve made the design available on some tee shirts and buttons. If you make a purchase, 100% of proceeds will go to The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. whose goal is to help protect voting rights, reform the criminal justice system, achieve education equity, and ensure economic justice for all.

This comic was printed in the June 5, 2020 issue of The Sampan Newspaper, the only bilingual Chinese-English Newspaper in New England.
