Workwear with Distinct Message at SC Taco Joint

Add this one to the REALLY? files. Free Times reporter & author of ‘The Accidental Candidate‘, Cory Hutchins snapped this picture at a South Carolina Taco Joint. The restaurant, Taco Cid, has their employees wear T-Shirts with a very distinct and pointed message.


Being that Taco Cid is so attuned to the general atmosphere, they are ready prepared with a response for the incredibly obvious question.

I really don’t know what to say about this – the picture and the statement both speak for themselves. A private company can make private decisions, no matter how ignorant and offensive the decisions may be. And they’ll always find someone to proudly wear it. And as much as I hate to admit it, technically, they are right. There are no racial nor hate remarks towards any specific ethnic group on that T-Shirt.

But we still get the message.

With that in mind, maybe it’s time to blow this taco stand and go somewhere that doesn’t promote discrimination through work attire (or any other means). Papalote comes to mind…
