Summary

Unisex beige organic cotton t-shirt with an outline map of Australia on the front and the words "full" and "of racists". This t-shirt was sold on the website CafePress. It uses the white map of Australia, a common icon used to promote the 'White Australia' policy of the early 20th century, to undercut the racist message. The slogan is a play on the commonly used racist imagery of the outline map of Australia with "Full!" in the centre which was used following the 2005 Cronulla riots.
