I bleached half my hair.
And then decided to act like a grungy human being that's better then everyone.
-Commenter Jacqueline C. Wachell on the latest Victoria Secret scandal."As a Native Women [sic], I want to share how disappointed I am in your lack of Cultural respect of traditional sacred items and our women in general. Native women have the highest rate of sexual related murder on the continent. Thank you for further promotion of this violent act against our women!!"
At the latest Victoria Secret show, which was "calender" themed,
Karlie Kloss was chosen as a November "Angel" She played a "native American" in cheetah print underpants and bra (the cheetah is not even indigenous to America).
What were they thinking you ask.
What are they ever thinking when they put a non native American women into a Native American traditional headpiece and along with it, sexy lingerie. Do they just think
"No we will definitely not get whiplash for this."
and this is not even the first time, its like ever single season fashion comes up with a new form a racism to strut down the runway, like earlier this year Dolce and Gabbana.
and what pisses me off even more is that this is not the first time VS has been charged with racism accustions back in September VS came under fire for releasing a "Sexy Little Geisha" get up that received an equal amount of "feed back".
And I ask once again do they ever learn.
This is september people it was just a few months ago.
And now i ask why is fashion so prone to rascism.
I mean how hard is it to just look at what you are presenting to people and think
"huh maybe that can be offensive"
and how hard is it to throw some diversity among the models in the shows while your at it.
Next year you i bet you anything the November section of there calender issue they'll feature an African Americain women wearing a brassiere with the words Friday on it, and with VS shopiping bags in her hands, they'll call it
