The Last Word 2012: A Hoodie and Skittles May Cost Your Life

Our satirical and funny friend, Andre Leroy Davis, was back at it again in 2012 with “The Last Word”, his unique brand of cartoonish commentary on current events and politics.

In one of the most tragic and polarizing stories of 2012, 17-year-old, unarmed Trayvon Martin was shot and killed in February 2012 after arguing with “neighborhood watchman,” George Zimmerman. With only Skittles and an iced tea on his person when he was shot, Trayvon’s murder had the Hip-Hop community particularly appalled, and rocking “hoodies” became a symbol signifying that Black men are sick and tired of being pigeon-holed and oppressed.

At the time, Andre’s artistic “Weapons” statement said it all:
