Why a taco, why not some other food that is stereotypical?

For example; What if, instead of a taco, they put a falafel?

In Charleston, SC, one of the big draws is the slave market; it's the actual market on the waterfront where the slaves were unloaded off of the newly arrived ships and sold to their new owners. Now it is used as a sort of outdoor market where people sell various goods, everything from handmade baskets woven by the ancestors of former slaves to historical artifacts and various tshirts and trinkets. Some of the tshirt vendors there have some of the most incredibly racist shirts I've ever seen in my life, and I wondered who would actually buy and wear such a thing. The one I remember the most was a shirt that had a picture of a cotton plant with the slogan "COTTON - It's a white thing, You used to pick it"

And charging $35, no less! The mark-up is the real crime here.

I'm a person that believes that we should have smart immigration control, and that illegal immigration is a bad situation for criminal influx, abuse of the not-otherwise-criminal immigrants, and yes social services in areas that feel its greatest impact. It is a really raw deal for legal immigrants that have to jump through hoops like you wouldn't believe to get their ticket punched. However, these folks are the ultimate capitalists... they come to work like crazy at a lower cost than the competition in a variety of fields. They're typically pretty conservative Christians (Catholic, Mormon, and others) and are working to better their family's situation.

And they get sh*t on by the same people that employ them, who otherwise hold the exact same values.

"I mean, really, we saw this on a shirt there, made a blatant copy with our name on it, and started selling them. And now it's gone national, so I want everyone to know that we copied someone else's idea, slapped our restaurant name on it as if we did it ourselves or maybe implying that that artist endorses our restaurant, and started using them for commercial gain."
