BLACK LIVES MATTER
HOW YOU CAN HELP FURTHER SOCIAL JUSTICE AND FIGHT RACISM
ALL JUNE PROCEEDS FROM BAD IDEA WILL BE DONATED TO THE NAACP LEGAL FUND.

Black people in the United States are inordinately targeted by the criminal justice system. According to the NAACP, despite comprising around 13% of the population, committing no more crime per capita than their white counterparts, Black people make up 34% of incarcerations—five times the rate of white imprisonment. They also make up more than 30% and deaths by the police. Black children represent 32% of minor arrests and 52% of judicial cases waived to criminal court.
These disparities are horrific and unacceptable. Enough is enough. It is time for more than just conversations and social media posts. An institutional problem requires institutional solutions, beginning with organizations that help, like the NAACP.
