The last few months have given the U.S. plenty of opportunities to think on racism, both current and historical. A slew of racially motivated murders by the police continue to make headlines. The 150th anniversary of Appomattox has just passed, renewing memories of Emancipation and the failure of Reconstruction.

People on the internet, of course, are outraged about this. How could Urban Outfitters possibly be so ignorant or so tasteless as to try and sell people Holocaust-themed fashion? Did the corporation learn nothing from their bloody Kent State hoodie fiasco?
Only Naziwatch, however, has the answer to that question—a vast international conspiracy. (more…)
