HUF X Haroshi Create Powerful Black Lives Matter Tee
Oh, we thought an “All Lives Matter” bitch said something.
HUF has teamed up with Japanese artist Haroshi to create a limited edition tee in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, with every last cent going towards Black Lives Matter LA.
The tee introduces a take on Haroshi’s iconic Middle Finger art piece, which serves as an expression of “fuck you to oppressors, to injustice, to violence, to racism, to authority, to inequality, and to anyone or anything working to divide or abuse our community,” and transforms it into a raised fist, the symbol for unity and solidarity.
The design also boasts a fierce back print, listing out “FUCK RACISM/FUCK HATRED/FUCK IGNORANCE/FUCK POLICE BRUTALITY/FUCK INJUSTICE.” Louder for the people in the back!!! The collab also presents a skateboard deck with the same design, with 100% of the proceeds from this also going to BLM.
Retailing for $40 USD, the tee is available now on the official HUF site.
The Haroshi Middle Finger has long stood in our LA store as a symbol of “fuck you”. A “fuck you” to oppressors, to injustice, to violence, to racism, to authority, to inequality, and to anyone or anything working to divide or abuse our community. Yes, we were saddened to see our LA store looted this past weekend, with it the (temporary) downfall of the middle finger, but material items can be replaced, lives can not. Let’s remember the reasons we are here - to demand equality and justice for all. While we continue our conversations about how we will progress as a brand, we want to open a dialogue with you - the people who have supported us for the past 18 years - to help identify meaningful ways to take action towards needed change. We want to know what’s a priority for you, the organizations that are important to you, and the ways that we can continue to be by your side through this for the long haul. Let us know below.
