New Mexico, Cleaner than Regular Mexico

This really has less to do with New Mexico than Mexico, but what do you want. Urban Outfitters is selling a t-shirt that say “New Mexico, Cleaner than Regular Mexico”. Some people find it offensive.

An official with the Anti-Defamation League wants the retailer to stop selling the shirt — because it suggests that “Mexico is a dirty place.”

I would buy one but it’s not currently available for sale and they want $24.00 freaking dollars for it!

Update 06/25/05 5:23 PM: I guess I didn’t consider this to be a racist saying but now I can see how it could be considered as racist. I’m now wondering what the people at Urban Outfitters were thinking when they put this out there.
