After the jump, I pair up my sunglasses and flip-flops with my most ridiculously ironic statement T-shirts.
The whole point of my t-shirt collection is that they are very specialized pop culture references. As such, I'll put a link to the wiki article describing whatever show, book, or movie is referenced, plus a link to where you can find the shirt if it's still out there.

Here's Kanye apologizing years later for his infamous 'George Bush doesn't care about Black people' statement in Katrina's aftermath. I would agree with Kanye's reassessment that Bush isn't racist. A more apt statement would be "George Bush doesn't care about poor people. Especially poor black people." George Bush clearly likes some black people, (Condi, Collin, I'm looking at you) as long as they are like him. This whole apology thing five years later is just silly, but you would expect two megalomaniacs with a beef to act ridiculous. Here's HuffPo's rundown of what went down last year.
Ok, back to the fashion. I paired Franklin's shirt with these yellow sandals I got in France:
