(PIX11) -- Outrage over Michael Brown's death resulted in trending #IfTheyGunnedMeDown photos on social media.

The hashtag is typically followed by the question "Which photo would they use?" The posts are directed towards the media's portrayal of minority victims.

#IfTheyGunnedMeDown posts typically have two "opposite" images side by side. Common photo combinations include graduation photos against photos with alcohol and professional versus casual wear images.
