Fashion’s Racial Divide

Hey Bombshells,

“Make Black History e’ryday, I don’t need a month!” -The Old Kanye

This Black History Month has been roughhh! I’m not sure if it’s ignorance or if black outrage is embedded into their marketing strategy, but high end fashion designers have made it a point to create pieces that portray a lack of beauty in blackness. Insensitive pieces that deliberately serves as a reminder of the effects of slavery. From afar, it is obvious the fashion industry has crafted itself to be a platform that thinks it is more than okay to incorporate a noose into a hoodie, red lips on a turtle neck, and to use blackface as a profitable image. Don’t get me wrong, this has been going on for years but this month….It’s uncalled for! The ugly reality is that these clothing lines were not created for black people. High end brands do not consider us as their direct consumer.

Black people are overlooked and insulted yet our culture and now, our outrage is the backbone to their “creative content”. As we enter a new month, let’s change the faces we choose to give our money to. Let’s put black people and black entrepreneurs first, just so we can put money back into our community. I am the first to complain about how expensive black businesses are but I understand now how much it’s worth it. Moving forward, I know that extra expense is just tax for our hardship. To all my black and brown Bombshells, you deserve to be celebrated every month but don’t forget to worship your complexion everyday.
