This. It'd definitely have my vote, if so. Beautiful colors, indeed.

Do Mexicans come to America as migrant workers? Yes.
Do they bring all of the richness and beauty of their culture with them when they do? Absolutely.
Do ignorant people marginalize them and treat them like trash while they are here? Unfortunately, yes.
Does this shirt promote that sort of treatment or indicate that they are in America illegally? Not at all.
Does it even indicate that they are in America? Not really.
Ilander, I suggest that you are out of line in your assumption and that you are seeing racism where there is none.
Is migrant workers really the best you can come up with on a theme as rich in history and style as all of Mexico? What you are picturing here is a stereotype and it could easily be viewed as offensive. I don't think Woot believes you are racist for entering this, so you and your wife should probably chill out with the outrage.
Woot doesn't take chances with controversial stuff, and just because you don't see it or didn't intend it doesn't mean it's not there.
I like the skeletons, it's too bad you didn't go with another way of using them.
