Even if you're one who believes all p.c. related matters have gotten out of control, you would have to concede that this isn't one of them, especially when it particularly bothers Fukudome himself. This classless T-shirt does not reflect the views of the vast majority of Cub fans.

Man, I must really be an ass... because I want one of these shirts!!!! Maybe add on a Harry Carey quote like: "My eyes aren't that slanty!"

These shirts are still selling at http://shop.achtungtshirt.com here's a picture

Why would fans buy these? Are the fans racist or just Fukudome fans?

"Why would fans buy these? Are the fans racist or just Fukudome fans?"

In this case, they're mostly the former rather than the latter.
