Left, man in black shirt: Are you Thai? Why don’t you wear black!
Another man in black: Yes.
Two men in black: Boo…
Center top: Why don’t you wear black… don’t you love father?!
Center bottom: Love father… must wear black!
Right: You deserve this… you insult father!
Caption: If he looks down at us… father would not want to see this kind of picture.

[This illustrates the situation after Rama 9 passed away. Many reacted violently to those who chose not to wear black as a sign of mourning. The late king always extolled the unity of people so the attacks of Thai on Thai is thought to be the antithesis of the ideal of Thai society where all are unified.]
