Strange fruit in America

With recent situations with Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Eric Garner, this art piece speaks volumes. Art can definitely send a strong message in a powerful yet nonviolent way. This is exactly how African Americans currently feel as civil rights issues boil up once again. Art is all about stirring emotions, striking conversations and relaying the thoughts of the artist so a mass audience can hear it. Strange fruit is hanging from the American flag.
I came across this image and felt compelled to share it but unfortunately the artist information was not with it and I was unable to locate.
