But if they had an "average white guy" outfit it would have been OK. Minorities need to get over themselves. They scream racism at every little thing. Next black person that calls me a (racker, wh!tey, p!nky, etc is getting sued for emotional distress.

I'm more offended Daisy Fuentes is considered a designer at Kohl's, and that Avril Lavigne has a "fashion" line.

Good Grief!

But if "White Trash" is so ubiquitous, and certainly allowable - by blacks, whites, greens, purples, et al.- why can't "Ghetto Fab," with it's innately positive titling, be permissible?

I read this and it made water squirt from my nose. It is a wig! Goodness people!

What's next? Kohl's better take down all samurai, ninja, and kungfu outfits before it paints Asians in a stereotypical light. Also, take down all pirate costumes lest the connection between all pirates and Somalians be drawn as well.

Can a white person please stand-up and object to powdered-wigs being sold as halloween costumes? Not all white people are colonial slave owners and to be portrayed in such a way should be considered offensive to them!

(I am not white by the way.)

So now I guess I shouldn't shop at Target cause they offended gays and I shouldn't shop at Kohl's cause they offended blacks. Guess that just leaves Kmart and Walmart, huh?

It's only a matter of time before we see and hear complaints from RNs about the "naughty nurse" outfits, followed by Wiccans insulted by the witches' garb, and convicts up in arms over the depiction of them wearing black and white prison stripes. Why don't we all just wear a sheet with all kinds of holes in it like Charlie Brown so we're all PC. Oh wait, then people would be sued for infringing on the "Peanuts" copyrights by the estate of Charles Shultz. Good Grief!!!

More political correctness run amuck. Political correctness is nothing more than the thought police. And now ppl are talking about bullying? So crazy. Are we so weak that if we offend someone they commit suicide? Get some [email protected] people (like Hillary and I)!

What exactly did that "ghetto fab" wig look like? Is it just a huge afro wig? Because this kind of wig has been sold at stores for a long time without any issues.
