Racism watch: "Dirty Mexico" for sale


This charming item appears on a T-shirt for sale at Urban Outfitters, the oh-so-hip clothing retailer.

For an insight on the "dirty Mexican" stereotype at work, read this column by Douglas Bower. Guess what hotels have bedbugs now. . .

And you can help break the link from Urban Outfitters above by contacting the chain store to express your feelings and by signing the petition at Blue Latinos here.

I wish I could say I'm surprised, but I'm not...I've pointed folks your way for more thought and information.
