TAKIN' STOP HATIN' TO THE NEXT LEVEL - A LINE OF CLOTHES WITH A MESSAGE: STOP HATIN'
DAYTON, OH - Jan. 14, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- In the fall of 1998, the Stop Hatin' Organization stepped forward with a line of clothes with a message: Stop Hatin' -- two remarkably simple words that create a powerful phrase that emphasizes the positive and eliminates the negative at every level in our society. The Stop Hatin' Organization printed this powerful phrase on the front and back of its t-shirts and sweatshirts.
The clothing line is the brain child of Jami Israfil, a former school bus driver with the Dayton, Ohio, public schools. "This is not a new concept," says Israfil. "I came up with the idea because of what I heard the kids on my bus saying. They were talking about hating in a whole different way than we adults do."
As used by young people, including popular rappers like Eminem, Jay-Z, and Nelly, the word "hatin'" means jealousy, backbiting, disrespect (dissin'), and other similar behaviors. Israfil adds, "To the rest of us, the word describes some pretty negative behaviors, too. No matter how you define the word, stopping the hate is a good thing. Now we're adding a new logo and new name to take the concept to the next level. The classic stop sign logo will be available still, but 9/11 let us know that this idea needs to be promoted throughout the world--even the universe--not just here in the U.S. So, we've come up with a new logo and a name that reflects a broader focus."
People who see the shirts appreciate their message, their quality, and their price. The shirts have been featured on national TV and radio, and in Dayton, Ohio, and Cincinnati, Ohio, newspapers. Wherever the shirts are worn or sold, they generate interest among everyone -- no matter their age, race, or economic status--and the new logo and name should create even more interest. The shirts can be purchased at the company's website, www.stophatin.com, and, for a limited time, there are no shipping charges for shirts purchased on the website for shipment within the continental U.S.A. "Hey -- maybe sending Stop Hatin' shirts to world leaders would be a good idea."
