i'm not sure racist is the right word. "racially awkward" maybe

if you're a white dude wearing this it's gonna be pretty weird though

true.

Short fat white dude becomes good at basketball by turning black?

Or maybe there's something we're missing. Maybe it's about the sneakers.

Anyway, safe to say I don't get it.

It's a spoof of Bart as Michael Jordan and the Air Jordan brand...

Michael Jordan was popular in the early 90's. The Simpsons were popular in the early 90's. Put 2 and 2 together to create a shirt kids would beg their parents to buy for them at the local swap meet. I don't think any negative racial connotations were supposed to be conveyed by this.
I remember I had a "Black" Bart as Magic Johnson shirt back then and wore it to Catholic school for free-dress day. No one gave me shit - maybe it was because I was a kid or the nuns didn't know any better. And this was a school that outlawed POGS. Anyway, it was $4.99 well spent

first glance before reading any of the print on the shirt it sort of looks like bart was dipped in chocolate and there's a ball stuck to his hand. and he's also sticking his tongue out because there's a ball stuck to his hand, like he doesn't like it or something.

and bart as chuck d:
