Can Urban Outfitters Stop Offending People for Two Secs?

Philadelphia's most high-profile retail juggernaut is, without question, Urban Outfitters Inc., which not only provides jobs and economic development for the city, but has been the foundation of the burgeoning expansion of the Navy Yard. For this and more, we are grateful. We want to make that clear. But ... come on. You've offended another minority group? In the latest scandal, the UO website offers a yellow T-shirt with a six-pointed star on the breast pocket. Kind of like the yellow six-pointed star Jews were forced to wear on the breast pocket during World War II. Almost as offensive? The T-shirt's price: $100.
