The Good Shepherds

From Towleroad:

Students Stand Up in Pink Solidarity for Bullied Classmate

When a freshman student showed up for the first day of class at Central Kings Rural High School in Cambridge, Nova Scotia wearing a pink shirt, he was set upon by a group of 6 to 10 students who called him gay (faggot!) and threatened to assault him.

The next day the bullies didn't have a chance to repeat their actions. David Shepard and Travis Price (above), two seniors who had witnessed the incident, showed up to school with 75 pink tank tops for students to wear, according to the Chronicle Herald. Shepard and Price handed the shirts out before the beginning of class.

According to Shepard, when the bullied kid saw the group of kids in the pink shirts, "he was all smiles. It was like a big weight had been lifted off his shoulder."

Strangely in Europe all the 'Hooligan' tribe got well into pink T-shirts.
instead of the minority wearing them , its the majority, large groups of drunken men , largeing it in Pink.
We have football strips in Europe , they can get you a lot of attention, like from Mr. Death.
