Make CafePress Stop Selling Racist Shirts

February 17, 2012 (Fremont, CA) – The Sikh Coalition urges consumers worldwide to sign our petition to CafePress, demanding that the company stop selling racist t-shirts that promote bigotry against Sikhs. 

Mr. Bob Marino
Chief Executive Officer
CafePress, Inc.
1850 Gateway Drive, Suite 300
San Mateo, California 94404

Dear Mr. Marino,

I am writing to demand that CafePress stop selling racist shirts. The shirts in question, which are available for sale on your company's website, say “No More Ragheads!” and “No More Towelheads!” These racial slurs are often used against Sikhs, who are required by their religion to wear turbans, and have been used in the context of hate crimes in the post-9/11 environment.

Please ensure that these offensive and dangerous products are immediately and permanently removed from the market. I demand that CafePress issue a public apology and assurances that it will implement better internal controls to prevent hateful material from being sold in its name again.
