This is a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Edition – Clapback Special in response to a certain University’s map depiction of the city; purposely, and oddly omitting all the surrounding neighbor”hoods” whose demographic are mainly African-American. This design was directly created in response to the map depiction, but in turn the “hoods” of Pittsburgh are properly highlighted in gold, while the rest of the neighborhoods are muted out. These neighborhoods are a part of the region and should be represented. The omission of these neighborhoods blatantly show that this university do not consider these hoods, and the people who live their a part of their narrative. The university has since removed the map from their website.
The gold on black design represents the primary sports colors of the city.
40% of the proceeds of the profit will be donated to the Urban League of Pittsburgh to dedicating to advocating on behalf of economic and social justice for African Americans and against racial discrimination in the United States.
**AS SEEN ON KDKA AND PITTSBURGH POST GAZETTE (Please note that you may have seen a version of the shirt and graphic with the incorrect spelling of Hazelwood, the final shirts and on website versions do reflect the corrected spelling, and are unable to update the graphic on some media platforms!)
