Snowman T-shirts...if you have kids...



  1. NEW YORK (AP) - One of the hottest-selling T-shirts around the country shows a simply drawn snowman with a menacing expression.
    It's not Frosty's evil twin. The image popularized by drug-dealer-turned-rapper Young Jeezy symbolizes those who sell a white substance known on the street as snow: cocaine.
    Anti-drug campaigners and education officials are alarmed, saying the T-shirt and others like it are part of sophisticated marketing campaigns using coded symbols for drug culture that parents and teachers are not likely to understand. Some schools are banning kids from wearing the snowman images. "The snowman is made of white, grainy stuff like sugar," said 12-year-old seventh-grader Mailik Mason, standing next to his mother in a Manhattan store selling the snowman shirts. "It has to do with a certain drug, crack or coke."

    Oh yes. Banning symbols and designs will certainly eliminate the problem

    It's a free country, so it won't happen and if it did, it would make them more popular.

    I think banning them in schools is appropriate. It irritates me that rappers glamourize the thug life.
