The UK Huffington Post and TMZ have reported the serious offence to Baker Skateboards‘ latest baseball shirt design that features Daniel Shimizu and Don Nguyen riding the classic Dukes of Hazzard car with The Duke’s word exchanged for Gooks.
Paul Kearns, of anti-racism education charity Show Racism The Red Card, said: “We would say that T-shirt is obviously racist and we agree with the comments that suggest this is essentially a case of racism for sale. We hope to see it withdrawn in the very near future. It promotes racial stereotypes and it is unacceptable.”
Andrew Reynolds is yet to comment but is this an over the top reaction?
Heroin Skateboards welcome a new pro rider to their team this morning. Daniel Shimizu is their first, official American pro rider whose pro deck will be released this week in your local SOS. Read the full release from Fos and Heroin here.
