got justice?

I created "got justice?" to depict all of the unrest that is going on in Ferguson, Mo. (St. Louis County) related to the tragic death of Michael Brown, Jr. I wanted to show a picture of Michael, a normal African American teen in his element, listening to music; a picture we've seen numerous times across America.
