Why do they think it is proper to sell shirts with catchphrases that are offensive to Chinese people?
“Save a dog, eat a Chinese,” read one shirt. “Save a shark, eat a Chinese,” read the other.
According to huffingtonpost, the shirts were for sale on Spreashirt’s website as early as last week. Although Spreadshirt employees don’t design T-shirts for sale on the site (users and customers do), quite a few people were disappointed with the company for allowing the offensive shirts to be sold. The controversial T-shirts have been removed from Spreadshirt’s website. However, the spokewoman for the company believes that these T-shirts are not racist.

LIghten up, old girl: your feelings need to be checked by your mind! Why is it "racist" to print such slogans I don't see them as "racist" at all. They are slogans but not racist; they tell you things that are difficult to accept for civilised people. Dogs and sharks deserve as much compassion as people do. If people act like brutes they do not deserve much respect. To be a human being in no way allows you to ride roughshod over the rights of other creatures. If you treat sharks and dogs like a brute then you doubtlessly treat your fellow human beings similarly.

T-shirts can be used to advocate animals protection, but there is a condition that insulting, slandering and vilifying words cannot be used. Do you think it is acceptable to say things like saving a dolphin and eat a Japanese, saving a cod and eat an European, saving the earth and eat all the human beings?  It is not acceptable and the behavior itself is shameful!

No one needs to feel insulted. No one means to insult anyone; if you can't read between the lines don't read them. I think sharks are real victims of human barbarity and greed, as are dogs and, indeed, any animals. Animals deserve everyone's compassion, not just the Western world's. Chinese and other Aiians should stop sacrificing people and animals in the name of "cultural traditions". Stop massacring animals - bears for their bile, tigers for their reproductive organs, fish dogs, elepphants for their ivory.
