"Offensive" t-shirt censored

'Homeland Security' T-Shirt Yanked Off Museum's Shelves

Shirt With Native Americans Is Thought To Be Offensive To SomeOn the weekend of the Columbus Day holiday, a T-shirt is at the center of a long-standing conflict between those who celebrate the holiday and those who say it doesn't deserve to be celebrated.

The shirt was yanked off the gift store shelves after some found it offensive. The shirt hints to the premise that explorers such as Christopher Columbus were essentially "terrorists" when they invaded a land that had already been occupied.

What 'controversy?' Truth can be scathing, even inconvenient, but never is truth 'controversial.' Some may argue that truth is a matter of perception, but if truth has FACT attached, then perception falls away by the curbside.
Please note that the article said the deaths 'of hundreds of thousands' of Native Americans, not millions or tens of millions or even over a hundred millions. Where is truth hiding this time? Oh, yes, over there behind the media perception desk...
