    There's the article, but take a look at the T-shirt first and see if you see anything wrong. I can't believe they "didn't see that".

    Unless they paid for the shirts to be printed on their own, some adult, not quite bright, really dropped the ball on that little slogan. Don't understand the pirate flag, unless they are the "Pirates." But then why the Indian? Stick to a theme and your mascot. Hard to go wrong that way.
    As a Union Redskin for all of my school years up to college, I am offended that anyone is offended by a portrait of an Indian warrior. Should I be ashamed of my Choctaw, Chickasha, and Cherokee blood? Get a grip, easily offended white people!

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.
