I hear ya . I always avoided wearing “word shirts” ’cause there’s not much I want to advocate.
I wear a work t-shirt 24/7 these days as it advertises our family biz but prior to that, I wasn’t into them. I’d wear them if I went to an event (event T-Shirts) but slogans were never my thing.
It’s good this is being brought out in the open. I learned when I was young about its dark history in Boy Scouts gossip, confirmed it with my mom who had a few stories of her own around it, and I guess I just assumed everybody knew its dark history.
I wonder if the changing of the wording has resulting in a less-racist ,more tolerant society or if it didn’t change anything? I tend to think it delayed knowledge of racism to older ages but not sure what else it accomplished.
I’m not saying it’s right. But as you can see in that court case you provided, the USA is really inconsistent and weird when it comes to kids.
