We know, we know -- the juxtaposed amalgam of ethnic symbology is factually (and perhaps politically) incorrect...but admit it: the image made you smile!
Taiwanese-American Jeremy Lin is the NBA's newest sensation, and thus far his Asian heritage has generated more coverage (and perhaps fans) than his sensational play. From new twists on old jokes ("Who says Asians can't drive?!") to pun-filled headlines ("Amasian!"), Jeremy's skills and bloodline have spawned a bona fide national media storm. In no time flat he's gone from benchwarmer to certified floor leader of the New York Knicks. Or should we say its "Dear Leader"?
It's true that "Dear Leader" is a phrase most often associated with the totalitarian rule of North Korea, and that Mao Tse Tung imagery springs from communist China, while Jeremy's family -- and the featured flag -- hail from democratically independent Taiwan and he is as American as apple pie (growing up in California)...combined the elements are not intended to offend, but to have fun with the "Linsanity" social media firestorm and pay tribute to the cult of personality that has surrounded him in one week's time.
Join in on the fun with this kitschy design that combines the Big Apple's newest hero with China's most ubiquitous image to create a fresh icon for the Jeremy Lin Era (or Year of the Drag-Lin). You can get this original artwork on blue, black, grey, or white 100% cotton pre-shrunk tees in sizes small through 4XL (alternate colors/cuts/sizes available on request).
