Default New Mexico, Cleaner Than Regular Mexico

Subject : Urban Outfitters Outrage

My dear friends,

If you are offended by the tee shirt: “New Mexico, Cleaner Than Regular
Mexico,” currently sold in Urban Outfitters stores nationwide, you can take
action right this very minute. You can:

1) Sign the Urban Outfitters Outrage petition at
http://www.PetitionOnline.com/urbout05/petition.html
2) Boycott Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie stores (yup, they own that,
too)
3) Sell all of their stock (NASDAQ: URBN) if you own it and invest your
money in a company with some ethics
4) Call their Corporate Headquarters in Philadelphia at 215-564-2313 to
demand the removal of the tee shirt from their stores and web site, as well
as a real apology
5) Write to their President and Chairman of the Board, Richard Hayne
(Richard.Hayne@urbanout.com) and give him a piece of your mind
6) Call any reporters or media you know and tell them how enraged and
sickened you are. Negative publicity will hurt sales and their company share
price, and you know those fat boys are hurt most by an empty pocketbook
7) Spread the word!!!!

You can see this blood-boiling tee shirt at urbanoutfitters.com, men’s
apparel, short sleeved tees, fifth page.

This is not about political correctness or censorship. This is about basic
respect and tolerance. If they want to blatantly disrespect the Hispanic
community and its $700 billion in purchasing power, they can do so at their
own risk.

By the way, they’ve pulled stunts like this before with the Asian and Jewish
communities. They think tasteless is funny. They’ll do it again if we let
this slide, so let’s go out there and make them live to regret this product!

Thanks for your help, everyone.

-Wendy
