BROOKLYN - One Brooklyn clothing company is creating a lot of controversy over racism due to a new campaign the store launched.

Clothing company Brooklyn Industries recently launched the "Jungle Fever" campaign.

The company says that the campaign asks people to comment about how they combat racism in their daily life, and then posts the answers on the store's windows.

Residents are generally split on the issue, saying that combating the issue is important but others feel it's just not in good taste.
