  • Product Description: Despite having completed this graphic within a week of the incendiary death of George Floyd on May 25, I knew and accepted the risk of trying to go into any kind of timely production what with the new COVID world disorder. So while this is indeed very late in coming—actually, it's much later than I'd ever expected—the unfortunate fact remains the same as similar incidents continue to play out across the nation. That said, fuck racism and any Blue Meanies that can't let this 1865 shit go once and for all. Should anyone wish to pipe up with exclamations of "Virtue signaling!" or "Keep politics out of skateboarding!" or "Cash grab!"—because those are exactly the kind of comments I spied when Toy Machine released its "Black Lives Matter" graphic—I only have this to say: Go fuck yourself. I know, that's not very peace, love, and understanding of me, but if you can't see the basic human rights forest for the political trees then there's the door and you're more than welcome to exit our gift shop. It's that simple. There's a million-billion other skateboard companies to go get your kicks on. Lastly, rest assured that any cash we do grab, AKA 100-percent of the profits from this board, will be donated to blackartistfund.org. Anyway, the Beatles said it best: All you need is love. That may sound trite, but the world's only going to get more and more complicated to live in going forward, so the very least we can do is to come together as humans to try and make the best of it. —Cliver
