Bomani Jones Wore A ‘Caucasians’ Shirt On ESPN This Morning And Surprise! Twitter Is Triggered

Bomani Jones filled in for Mike Golic on ESPN’s Mike & Mike this morning and set Twitter ablaze for his choice of shirt–resembling a Cleveland Indians logo but with a caricature of a white person in place of Chief Wahoo and a dollar sign substituted for a feather under the word ‘Caucasian .’

According to Complex, when asked about the shirt by host Molly Qerim, Jones joked that he decided to wear it because it was “clean.” This is not the real reason of course, as Jones has been previously stated that there’s “no defense” for the Cleveland Indians’ use of Chief Wahoo as their logo.

I don’t care if you’re white, black, or purple, if you don’t think this shirt is fire, you can’t sit at my lunch table. And if you think this shirt is offensive, then you have to be part of the camp that believes the Indians use of Chief Wahoo and the Redskins team moniker is unacceptable. Keep your outrage consistent. If not, check yo privilege.

Or if you only get offended by the opinions of the top 33 ESPN analysts, there’s nothing to see here.

Buy the shirt over at  Shelf Life Clothing for $22 bills. Or don’t. No sweat off my sack.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
