Brooklyn's Hidden Gem

Brooklyn Industries Bushwick T-Shirt

Another success in Brooklyn Industries's quest to destroy the authentic culture of an entire borough through uninspired and derivative design. Soon to be seen on NYU students and other tourists returning from forays into the perceived wilderness that is the fucking first stop.

Are the designers aware that 52% of Bushwick residents receive income support (up over 15% since 2000)?
Are the designers aware that memories of the '77 blackout riots still hang heavy in the air?
Are the designers aware that there are families here, history here?

Or is the word Bushwick just another word made meaningless once set in type, out of context?
