Am I the Only One

Lately, in the decade of the 00's I have seen that every summer a lot of "ethnic designs" are in fashion. One of them are Latino-inspired shirts.

So far, I have been okay with that. In fact, I have felt joyous because I could find the shirts with that design easy to buy...

Until recently!

I saw the patient at the hospital I was working at with a Latino-inspired shirt that HAD PLASTIC NUMBERS IN IT! You know, the same material they use to adhere numbers in sport shirts... that kind of plastic!

It bothered me to no end! It looked so ugly and out of context, and I found it a big offence to my culture.

Am I the only one being bothered about this?
