This is definitely the craziest photo that I’ve seen online all week. I had to repost this one. This photo was taken in Sirte, Libya for TIME Magazine by photographer Goran Tomasevic. If you look closer, the young man holding the machine gun is also wearing a fresh new pair of Michael Jordan (Air Jordan) sneakers and they even match his khakis! This photo speaks volumes about globalization and the huge affect that urban and Hip-Hop culture has had on the youth worldwide! So crazy but still very interesting! Your thoughts?!
