SUCCESS! Racist T-Shirt Protest SUCCESS!


On Tuesday, February 9 the readers of Sisterdoc joined in on a protest regarding the marketing of Obama products featuring racist Jump Jim Crow images. We won! The products have been removed from the site. Kudos to CafePress for responding to our concerns. We are happy to support businesses that support us.

CafePress.com sent the following message to Sisterdoc on Tuesday, February 12:

Kudos to Sisterdoc for keeping us informed and engaged on a wide variety of subjects. I joined in sending a protest e-mail to Cafepress and I most pleased with a positive result. Thanks Sisterdoc for helping me to feel empowered.
