Funny how the kid's parents didn't find it racist or offensive, but all the libtard sjws do?

Anyone ever think the kid picked the shirt himself? We will never have another attitude era because half of you are snowflake cucks.

Re: WWE Superstar Calls Out H & M For Racial Profiling!

So..If Im not offended by this, Im supposed to feel like a bad guy?
Im not a bad guy..Im not a good guy..Im THE -Oh, wait..someone already cut that promo

Seriously though, Titus is in a position where hes noticed a little more than the average black guy, he might as well make use of it, although there are a lot worse injustices done against black people
And neither the kid, nor his parents apparently had anything against this. The shirt is insensitive perhaps -could be done on purpose to show that H & M is above all the racial profiling, but its just a shirt..

"Black kid isn't allowed to wear any clothing pertaining to a monkey because it's racist" - actual racist.

Although Brock Lesnar's "Go to hell tour" might be coming to a close; we still have the decade strong, Vince McMahon's "Go fuck yourself" tour to look forward to.

I hope one day people will just see a kid, not a "black kid". This is one of those things that's only as racist as you are inside.

They really should have just had the kids switch shirts for the photos.

I bet Titus was triggered as fuck as a kid when the Black Ranger was a black guy.

Cant say I find it offensive and I doubt H&M intentionally meant it to come across as racist but man this was such a huge fuck up on there part. All it takes is for one person to say this could come across as racist..maybe we should rethink it.

Dunno if you're trolling, but in case you're not, that's a mighty amusing double standard you've got.

You don't have to look for the negative racial connotations this isn't some reach. It's not some archaic long forgotten thing that black people are likened to monkeys by some. It's no different than how people on this very board talk about how calling Mark Henry the silverback (a gorilla) was fucked up. It wouldn't be the same with the tiger sweatshirt because blacks have no history of being degraded as tigers.

Like, I get that the H&M people should have probably done a double take or revision to ensure that their ad didn't step on toes or anything, but like...come on, to say this was intentional?
I don't get this idea that black people are obligated to be outraged and fight for other races. If white people have a problem with that shirt that's mostly on them to speak up first. But they won't because let's be real we all know cracker isn't seen on the same level. Not because it's not meant to be insulting in some cases, but because there's no history of whites being slaved, hung, and facing oppression while being called crackers.

You're reaching with this in an attempt to have equality. Now had you had a shirt with an Jewish person that said "fresh out the oven" then you'd have a point.
