US restaurant under fire over ‘racist’ staff t-shirts

'How to catch an illegal immigrant': the politically-loaded slogan restaurant owners in South Carolina chose to print on staff t-shirts. The slogan is accompanied by a drawing of two tacos under a box, depicting a mouse trap.
Accused of racism, the owners of Taco Cid have hit back saying the t-shirts are a humorous and reasonable political statement not designed to single out a particular ethnic group. They say the t-shirts target all illegal immigrants, who they accuse of draining the US welfare system.
Critics say the t-shirts are an insensitive and crude way of drumming up business by getting free publicity. If exposure was indeed the owners’ intention, they appear to have succeeded. Pictures of the t-shirts are doing the rounds on social media and American news sites, while the owners’ claim they are receiving calls from people across the country eager to buy the $35 t-shirt.

Im so tired of the PC police! If they want to make a t-shirt like this, so what? If the Black Panthers had a t-shirt that said "Kill Whitey" no one would dare say a word...The Silent Majority is tired of funding illegal immigrants and lazy, dope-head welfare bums; isnt about time we were allowed to display OUR anger??? I dont care if I rub some socialist, vegan wimp the wrong way, I'm tired of the treehuggers, faggots, faminazis and "people of color" pushing their twisted agendas on us and ruining our country!

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get
the hang of it!

Politically incorrect t-shirts

It is even worse than that. In August 2012, the leader of the New Black Panthers did a very racist call for the murder of white babies....the same New Black Panther party that Obama's "Justice" dept refused to prosecute for voter intimidation...the same New Black Panther party that Obama marched with in 2007....

The groups you rage against are not the reason people of coommon sense were on the losing end this past election.
It was because of people that knew better, and voted wrong anyway, that the country continued hurtling on the path of self-destruction.


Yeah, and voting for a guy who believes in magic underpants would have been better...
