Dec. 8, 2006 – UTOPIA, an online Arts organization announces the launch of “Bias Bomb” casual apparel. This apparel was designed to discourage the use of the derogatory term “nigger” and to encourage positivity within our communities. “Bias Bomb” apparel can now be purchased through www.stimuliart.com and on www.cafepress.com/Pray4UTOPIA.
The “n” word is freely used by today’s musicians and comedians, which implies to society that is word is ok. In fact, this word is still offensive to people of African descent. The proprietor of UTOPIA (Pamela D. Smith) states, “You can walk pass any urban street corner, and almost always hear a youth calling another youth the
‘n’ word.” She adds, “It is our responsibility to teach our youth about the trials and tribulations this word has caused our parents, grandparents, and great grandparents.”
Incidents of racism is experienced and broadcast on the news everyday. UTOPIA has taken a stance for peace with the design of “Bias Bomb” apparel. The primary message for this apparel is “The ‘n’ word is absurd…” Two of the five secondary messages include “…because I am so much more” and “…grow up, man up, SHUT UP.”
UTOPIA will donate a portion of its sales to the National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ). NCCJ is a human relations organization “dedicated to fighting bias, bigotry and racism in America.”
“Bias Bomb” apparel can be purchased through www.stimuliart.com and on www.cafepress.com/Pray4UTOPIA. UTOPIA offers other goods and services intended to creatively inspire its customers. Visitors can find apparel, art, books, music, and poetry on www.stimuliart.com (the official website for UTOPIA). Ms. Smith founded UTOPIA 12 years ago to make a creative difference for humanity.
