Hey Andy, hope all is well. My name’s Donovan and I’ve been a big fan of the site for a long time now–I mean I check it daily, ha.
I’m the owner of a brand called Ignorant/Reflections based in Portland, OR.
The brand is centered around my struggles to affirm culture and identity in America’s Whitest and most gentrified city as I traveled between urban life and the ‘burbs.
The brand’s motto ‘Provocative Critical Thinking.’ Using bold graphics rooted in my experience, these garments provoke thought and conversation.
The two offerings I have here embody that motto. The ‘Ignorant’ beanie and the ‘I Survived Portland Police’ t-shirt.
On the ‘Ignorant’ beanie: The word “ignorant” simply means “to not know.” No one knows everything. Start a conversation with one of these classic ‘Ignorant’ beanies
On the ‘I Survived Portland Police’ t-shirt: The city isn’t always “Portlandia” for many of us when the police show up. Make a statement against police violence in the Rose City and beyond with this t-shirt sure to create conversations wherever you go!

Andy: I live in a rural county in England that is about 99% white, there’s no way I’m going to touch the issues raised in this post!
