Of course this is in South Carolina, why not? Today’s #NoMames is clearly this Taco Cid shirt that was posted on the Palmetto Public Record’s online page yesterday. Are you f-ing kidding us?
Nope. Apparently not. And the Taco Cid company actually addressed the shirt with a statement on its web site. We’re not racists. Yeah, right. Just read for yourself
Here is what they said:
Our t-shirts were created as a witty and comical statement regarding ILLEGAL immigrants. There are NO racial nor hate remarks towards any specific ethnic group.
Taco Cid and its employees are not racist. We will serve EVERY individual with the same quality of service, respect in a friendly and welcoming manner.
Our food is fresh and prepared and served in the SAME QUALITY and QUANTITY, regardless of your race, religion or political views.
As most tax paying Americans, we do believe ILLEGAL immigrants are taxing the system we support and live under, thereby, causing us to work harder and pay more taxes in support of their illegal activities which our government has simply chosen to look the other way. Is it racist to disagree with those who are not supporting the American system?
We are an equal opportunity employer and will hire anyone who meets our needs and is a legal citizen or immigrant. We do not hire illegal immigrants. Our employees pay taxes.
We are open Monday through Saturday and closed Sundays — in observance of a day of worship.
If you do not agree with our views on ILLEGAL immigrants, please do not visit our establishment. If you agree with our view on American Equality in citizenship and tax fairness, then show your support and come join us for lunch or dinner.
We look forward to serving you.
WTF. Hit it, Gollum.
That is the story of the White man. He is always trying to oppress the Indian and Black men. I have met so many Latinos that have been so oppressed to the level that they are ashamed to admit that they are Indian and Black. Many don’t know their story and others are trying to block it out their minds.
Arriba Latinos! No tengan pena de admitir sus raíces.
Not only racist but ignorant thinking that immigrants do not pay taxes. What makes me sick is they say they are closed on Sunday to worship. Yep, I remember Jesus saying to feed everyone unless you are brown. Stupid idiots. You know….if I wan’t Mexican food I sure am not going to a white establishment to buy it! ~signed…white Texas girl~
@PaulaRenee1 Yes, the statement reflects EVERY hypocrisy and stereotype one can think of.
[…] Latino living in the 21st century. Like the South Carolina Mexican restaurant that defended its “How to catch an illegal immigrant” taco shirts yesterday, the Urban Outfitters “Juan at WalMart vintage shirt” that went viral last […]
If I were unfortunate enough to live in a shit hole like that I would boycott their establishment. But fortunately for me I’m here in Miami where the sun shines all year long and business people know better than to insult their Latino clients.
[…] you kidding us? Maybe we are the fools for posting this, but after Taco Cid’s “How to Catch an Illegal Immigrant” shirt went viral, the owner, Leanne Snelgrove, was […]
