Article from : http://www. racialicious. com/2008/03/24/discovering-coonskin/

"It has been reported that clothing company Supreme is creating a line of tee shirts based on the 1975 film Coonskin."

History of the film : "

Coonskin uses a variety of racist caricatures from blackface minstrelsy and darky iconography, including stereotypes featured in Hollywood films and cartoons, presented in a manner that was intended to satirize the racism of the material and images rather than reinforce it.[3] In the book That’s Blaxploitation! Roots of the Baadasssss ‘Tuded X by an All-Whyte Jury), Darius James writes that “Bakshi pukes the iconagraphic bile of a racist culture back in its stupid, bloated face, wipes his chin and smiles Dirty Harry style." click here to read full history

All I know is that I would never buy this shirt and if I see anyone wearing it I'll through red paint on it.

THe fact that some would try to profit from racism in this day is disgusting. Shame on the makers of this shirt and anyone who wears it.
