“If you don’t love us – leave”: Woolies racist shirts


After so much publicity about the Abbott government’s foreign policy and the plight of the “Boat People”, a recent apparel stocked on the shelves of Woolworths, a popular grocery chain shocked Australian public. Seen on the media and across social network today, Woolworth stores were told to remove the singlets (pictured below) which had the order: “If you don’t love us – leave”.

Ooops! came the response. That was not the shirt we ordered and not what we represented (even if it was already selling and ON the shelves). I bet the poor replenishing staff (mostly young people who work part-time and do casual work between school) got into trouble. Well someone had to be blamed.
