There is no evidence that Edward Thatch (Teach?) ever took another man’s life.  Legit.  He was a super non-violent dude (until he began going mad from syphilis).  The Robin Hood of the West Indies, if you please.  The guy freed hundreds of African slaves. He then gave them the option to simply “be free” and go about their business, or to join his crew, which most did.  Every man who chose to stay as a part of his crew, received an equal voice.  They were paid the same as everyone else and they were given a place to call home as a freeman.  It’s been shoved down our throats that pirates were murderous criminals.  Why?  Well, because they were ENGLISH slaves that the pirates were “stealing”.  Blackbeard was freeing English slaves and they wanted him hanged for it because it was costing England a fortune.  Seriously.  No shit.  #TheHistoryTheyWantUsToKnow    

Wicked soft, wicked warm, wicked chill, wicked beach vibes crewneck sweatshirt that someone will definitely steal from you.  Like all of our crews and hoodies, our designs are printed into the fabric - not pressed onto the fabric.  That means you won't have to walk around feeling like you've got a plastic poster glued to your chest.
