Steve Madden, a popular footwear designer, has named this boot "The Taco".

If I have to explain why this is offensive, you are not my target audience. Please move on.

It's for sale on Amazon. Rather than spend a lot of time and energy yelling about it, I think a more productive use of that energy would be to go write a satirical review. And also pass this on to encourage your funny friends to do so, as well.

A couple of notes about reviewing on Amazon: You *do* need to have an Amazon account, and to have purchased at least one item from the web site. It doesn't need to be the item you are reviewing. So no, not everyone can play, and yes, there is a certain lack of anonymity here, if you care very much about your Amazon review history. Amazon has pretty easy-going review policies and it is NOT their practice to take reviews down, but they do have some rules. Specifically prohibited are:

"Obscene or distasteful content
Profanity or spiteful remarks
Promotion of illegal or immoral conduct"

I am totally off all caffeine.

I cannot wait to write my review.

I can't think of anything funny to write about it. It seems the only way they can think of to sell such an ugly piece of footwear is to be as racist as they possibly can about the whole thing.
