I'm a Texan and I know plenty of my hispanic friends that would get a kick out of this. I guess i can see uptight white guilt thinking its offensive, but I think you'd be on the wrong track. Got my vote.
I love it when people have friends of an ethnic group and then magically know everything about that group. Being actually hispanic and not just "around hispanics everyday" or having "hispanic friends", I don't find this shirt offensive until the creator says he wanted it to be. So is that uptight to be offended by a shirt with the purpose of comparing Mexicans to roaches? I'm ok with being uptight if it is. If the shirt is just cute mariachis singing that old song, then carry on. Let's get some clarification from the "boarder towner" artist.
Plus, thinking that a hispanic person would stab you for wearing this shirt is just as offensive as the shirt might be.
