On Thursday, Marc Jacobs concluded New York Fashion Week with his Spring 2017 show. However, the woke side of the Internet is offended because of one particular reason.
All the models (the majority of whom are white) wore fake dreadlocks. The line was crossed when the lead stylist could not point out a Black person.
Another problem is that the people who steal these customs do not understand the meaning of what they are wearing or doing, but are only doing it because it “looks cute.”
Just in case, it wasn't clear:
For example, if tribal prints give off a trendy feel for the upcoming season, hire Native American models. Afros will top off a look? Hire black models with natural hair! Does Southeast Asian attire blow you away? Easy! Hire Southeast Asian models! It does not get simpler than representation.
Asinine. People, of all sorts of colors, have been modelling Western style clothing in Europe and the US for decades. How many SJWs stood up and said, "Hey, don't use colored people for your clothing. Whites only, please."
How many? Zero. Apparently that "theft" was perfectly okay.
More on the BS concept of cultural appropriation.
