Controversial T-shirt blends RG3 and Redskins logo

By Sid Saraf,

I’m not exactly sure what to make of this.

Ocean City is a lovely town in Maryland. Along the boardwalk, there’s a store that’s selling this T-Shirt:


I won’t lie, my first reaction when seeing this shirt was to shout “racist!” It just seemed wrong at first glance. But, then the same guy (a reader of the D.C. Sports Bog) who posted this photo, posted another one:



And then I backed off. It’s clear this series of shirts is just taking local sports heroes and merging them with their team logos. OK, I guess that’s fine.

But with all the controversy surrounding the Redskins name and logo lately, I can’t see myself buying that. I’d feel uncomfortable wearing it in public.

I dunno, am I making too big a deal out of this? Let me know your thoughts.
