Check out our discussion on the Laguna Beach surf shop’s MLK Day sale: 20% off all black products.

On Monday, a surf shop in Laguna Beach held a sale for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Now in itself, while I don’t think it’s the way to celebrate the holiday, I don’t think this type of sale is a problem. However, the shop got a little crazy with this one. They photoshopped a picture of King Jr.’s face onto the body of a white surfer and offered 20% off all black products. What do you think- is this offensive? Here’s the story as reported by New York Daily News.

Here’s a copy of the offending ad.
