if you don’t think this carries an important message about our society then you are what is wrong with human society today
"the ones who look like me are bad" that’s what I’m hearing. save our girls.
No babygirl you are beautiful and smart.

i give up. this planet is not for me.
I was actually talking about this phenomenon the other day. This whole thing, along with the trend I’ve seen in SoHo/East Village/LES area for the last few months of white women wearing extremely expensive designer outfits with Nike or Adidas tall socks and sandals, represent white people grasping at anything that has touched blackness and trying to make it fashion.
Like the whole “Nike/Adidas socks and sandals” thing is mostly something black kids wear to or from playing basketball or while running errands around the neighborhood (or for black and Latina mothers to discipline their children), not a fashion statement. But white people see anything black people wear as simultaneously done for fashion, inherently stylish, inherently comedic and worthy of derision, and by definition ready for adoption and “elevation.”
These trends represent white people’s thirst to copy everything black people do, which is so deep that things don’t get looked at critically before they’re stolen.
Alternate summary: this woman has never so much as seen a wave and throwing a fake leather durag on her head’s not going to change that no matter how much you mark up the price.
