Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.

The interesting thing about this is that the scriptures refer to a god whose nature is at great disparity with whatever many of these Christians choose to believe, and this idealized and personalized form of god cannot be reconciled with this scriptural God. One develops their own personal set of beliefs which often revolve around cherry-picking certain scripture and ignoring others, leaving one to happily avoid any contradictions present.
These are fucking brilliant, haha!
