If ebay figures that shirt out they'll be banned instantly.

In a way I find them pretty funny, kind of like the opposite of BLM.

The terrorists would flop down on the ground after making contact quite frequently, so they got nicknamed "floppies". "Slot" is to successfully shoot something. So a colloquial way to say "shoot black terrorists". I'm not sure why they chose 1964 for the year, though. UDI was in 1965 and the Bush War started subsequent to that event. Otherwise it is a really damn cool shirt.

ZANU started its guerrilla activities in earnest with the murder of a white foreman in July of '64, thus marking the traditional start of the Bush War. ZIPRA followed suit shortly thereafter with its incursions from Zambia.
