Former Supreme designer Brendon Babenzien has been helming the grown-up streetwear line Noah for a couple of years now, and he's not afraid to use it as a platform to stand up for what's right. Noah has just released a T-shirt in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, with the lyrics of Warzone's "Break Down The Walls" printed on the reverse. All proceeds from the shirt will be donated to the Black Lives Matter movement, while a footnote promises any offended Trump supporters "full refunds."

A statement on the Noah website reads, "We are taught that slavery or Jim Crow is in the past. That the black community has had freedom and equal rights for ages. This is simply not true. I am no expert but I know this. Education is not equal. Job opportunity is not equal. Safety is not equal."

They go on to emphasize fashion's ability to speak out politically, writing, "I know many people don't think it is our place to voice our opinion on this matter. I disagree. Those of us with businesses who create graphics or speak to people through our various media channels have a responsibility to address these issues."
