So today I heard over the radio about a South Carolina Mexican Restaurant who is selling this T-Shirt that describes “how to catch an illegal immigrant”, if you see the t-shirt, there is a cartoon with two tacos under a box trap.
The owner of “Taco Cid” defense is that the shirts were created as a comical statement regarding illegal immigrants, and there are no racial nor hate remarks towards any specific ethnic group; also that this was a reasonable political statement about immigration policy in the United States. But some other people think that this is offensive, racist and that in some kind of way this is a business trolling for attention.
Now, the shirt is sold for $35.00 bucks (which I think it’s outrageous for a piece of clothing), but the business is getting calls from all over the country from people wanting to buy it.
Do you think this is racist? I would really like to know your thoughts
