Edit: In all seriousness, it is your mind that is drawing negative conclusions about "Race for a Cure". I just read on another thread that "Race.." was purchased by over 13,000 people and is the 12th highest selling shirt in woot history. It also placed first in the derby it was in.
So, does it make more sense that 13,000 people think the African AIDS epidemic is funny, or that you are overly sensitive and seek out reasons to be offended?
If you think it's the former, then I have to ask, why are you participating in an online community where so many people are that detestable?
I find it entirely plausible that 13,000 people would miss the point.
I live in Cleveland, where thousands (maybe hundreds of thousands) of people insist that the big grinning red face of Chief Wahoo "isn't racist" and "is tradition."
And I wouldn't call hardly any of these people hateful or mean or bigoted. But do they miss they point? Yes.
So, no, I have no intention of abandoning shirt.woot! just because 13,000 people bought a shirt that may be somewhat offensive.
