SAN FRANCISCO, California (CNN) -- Controversial T-shirts pulled by clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch this week after complaints they were racially insensitive are now being auctioned on eBay, fetching more than $200 apiece.

Is this really Racist?

Should the PC Police be chasing stereotype and caricatures.

Is Racism Immutably Harmful and Destructive?

Have we grown Intolerant of others pointing out the unique idiosyncrasies of our various cultures.

Would the above T-shirts be considered Spiteful to most people?

Well, I loved the Wong Brothers shirt in particular. I own one! The people who got riled up over that shirt need to get their priorities straight.

There are posters all over my school saying "Meet Up for a Discussion to see whether Abercrombie is Racist".

Idiots. I'd go but...no.

It's not racist at all, live with it. People are crying "racist" now just like they used to cry "red!" This is so pathetic.

Personally I think that Racism involves attempts to stunt or hinder a Racial Group of people. Satire and pointing out Stereotypes about Races to me is not Racism. EVERY Race has something that can be picked on....suck it up laugh at yourself and move on. For this very reason I also do not think Fuzzy Zoellers comments to Tiger Woods about "Chicken & Greens" was racist either. Plenty of people of all colors enjoy the same foods. Caricatures can be taken too far however and there is a fine line. Abercrombie was right to pull them if they deemed the possible damage as too severe.
