Anti-Illegal Alien T-shirt: Racist or ‘Witty’?

Twitter/@coreyhutchins

T-shirts being worn by employees of a South Carolina Mexican food restaurant and sold on-site are not only generating a lot of national street talk for the eatery, they’re creating a lot of controversy.

The shirt features a box trap with a stick and two tacos meant to lure undocumented immigrants and the words “How to Catch an Illegal Alien” in red, white and green – the colors of the Mexican flag.

While many find the shirts to be racist and offensive and some Latino organizations have begun speaking up against the restaurant and calling for an apology, the owners of the business establishment insist via a statement on their website that the shirts are a “witty and comical statement regarding ILLEGAL immigrants.”

“There are NO racial nor hate remarks towards any specific ethnic group. Taco Cid and its employees are not racists,” the statement continues. ”As most tax paying Americans, we do believe ILLEGAL immigrants are taxing the system we support and live under, thereby, causing us to work harder and pay more taxes in support of their illegal activities which our government has simply chosen to look the other way. Is it racist to disagree with those who are not supporting the American system?”

So what do you think about the tees; racist and offensive or “witty and comical “? Hit me up with your thoughts on this in the “leave a comment” box below.
