Primitve Terrorist

Ok, people, just so that I don't get any snide comments or emails;
You gotta admit its a funny shirt though!

You can buy it here.

I really fail to see how this is funny. You're just perpetuating stereotypes and with the rampant Islamophobia in the States it's irresponsible and disrespectful to all of those people who have to put up with hateful comments and abuse because of what religion they follow, how they look and the colour of their skin.
Just because you don't believe all people who look that way are terrorists doesn't make it ok to post shit like this because you think it's "funny." It's not funny when you look like this and people spit at you because they think you're a terrorist. It's not funny when you are "randomly" checked at an airport. It's not funny ever.

Dear Mr/Ms Anonymous,

First of all coming from the middle east, my dad, my brother, my family, my friends and I myself are constantly victimized by the stereotypes you mention. It is no funny matter at all. I of all people know that. But I believe you missed the point.

The fact that the shirt is called "PRIMITIVE Terrorist" and the fact that it demonstrates how a simple thing like a beard could transform anyone into a "terrorist" is a clear statement regarding those stereotypes. It is actually mocking people who believe that something like a beard turns you into a terrorist!!! THAT'S why its funny....
