Even though I had pro-feminist politics, I didn't feel that was coming across with alot of what I was doing. Most of my work revolved around anti-racist anti-imperialist police brutality stuff.

Judge thought it was understandable, but said he still needed to give some sentence. 50s happy heterosexual couple. Chose background 'cause it was blue and also because it was buff white guys in a Levi's ad, I wanted to tie that into white supremacy and the court system."
