Georgea Kovanis: Detroit Pride T-Shirts Have Stopped Being 'Clever Or Endearing'

Made in Detroit. Detroit vs Everybody. Detroit Hustles Harder. Detroit is the New Black.
Detroit's cool, pride t-shirts have been the rage for a while.
But Georgea Kovanis of the Detroit Free Press says she's had enough. She says the market has become oversaturated, writing:
I decided I'm done with these shirts.
They've outlived their purpose and stopped being clever or endearing — and I say this as someone who has given these T-shirts as gifts, received them and enjoyed them. I say this as someone who has recommended these T-shirts to friends and to readers of this newspaper.
I say this as someone who loves Detroit.
In fact, I say all of this because I love Detroit.
Wearing them became a way to show faith in Detroit, Kovanis writes.
