Amazon has put a shoe on the market available in the color ‘n***** brown,’ Your Content can report. The “Florence Shakespeare” line is peddling its leather Oxford shoes, and the Amazon listing shows you can get ’em in lots of colors, the racist description of brown.

TMZ first reported the story, claiming those words, uncensored, remain live on Amazon.

The rest of the posting reads like a normal shoe ad. The first line says, “Occasion: Whether you are working,driving,wedding,Business or other casual lifestyles it is a great choice to wear.”

Still, the fact that it went live on Amazon has to make ya wonder what the screening process is like — as in, do any human eyeballs get a final look before it’s posted.
