Generally speaking, I don’t like to get involved in political posts and commentary on the subject of immigration. This is the type of subject these days that tends to divide opinions among regular people, as well as provoke neurotic minutemen into shouting matches and threats ( like a certain CNN anchor, who shall remain nameless just as to not give him any free publicity.) But today I just couldn’t resist:
Target, yes, Target!! is selling an “Illegal Alien” costume for about 40 bucks on their website. I found out about this through one of the links from a friend on Facebook (thanks Delia L.!) who was as shocked as I am.
The costume retails for 40 bucks. It is an orange polyester jumpsuit with the words “Illegal alien” across the chest, similar to the ones used for people in jail serving time, with an alien mask, and a green card thingey that says “green card.” How stupid is that?
Makes you wonder about the clientele for Target. And just who is the distributor that makes these things?… Y también me pregunto quién será el pendejo (pardon my french!) que lo compre para su Halloween Party thinking he looks cool…jerk!
And a little note to Target: You have many, MANY customers who just happen to be Hispanic, and who would definitely find this offensive.
Ok so that’s my rant for the day.
Here’s the pic and the link, en caso de que quieran hacer corajes: http://www.target.com/Illegal-Alien-Adult-Costume-
UPDATE!!!! This was on the 11PM news all over the place: ABC, NBC, Univision and Telemundo. Apparently Target found out soon enough and they removed the products and link.
