Wal-Mart: America’s Real Embarrassment

December 1st, 2017

Wal-Mart is a great place to shop. That is if you don’t mind the under-paid employees, the shitty benefits, the guns and groceries beatdown of America’s small businesses, the Chinese influence and now this; Violence and racism.

The T-shirt pictured here was on sale at Wal-Mart until just recently. No, really. Wal-Mart sold a t-shirt encouraging people to lynch journalists. But wait, it gets better. It has been for sale for almost two years, and the first complaints are only coming in now?

America has some real problems, and Trump is using these divisions for his personal gain, at the expense of our unity and while threatening our future. The fact that the largest company in the world is cooperating should be noted. And while Amazon seems like a better, more progressive alternative; think again. You can buy the shirt there as well.

For all of the alt-rite who says I’m squeezing their first-amendment rights, I’m not. I’m just using mine to make us stronger.
