Bros Before Hoes?

Ok, two little comments. First, how impressively offensive. Second, divide and conquer has always been an excellent strategy.
Update: Wow, I really didn’t think we still had the have this conversation. The use of the phrase bros before hos (the correct spelling for the plural of ho, I believe) in this shirt is racist and sexist. Just because it’s also in common usage doesn’t make it less so. The general usage of this phrase is also sexist. Calling a woman a ho is calling her a prostitute, and is meant as an insult (I don’t believe it should be used as an insult, but it is).
And just because you might think it’s funny doesn’t make it less racist and sexist. Sure, I get the humor. Doesn’t mean it’s not offensive.
