If you haven't been living under a rock then you know about the ignorant, stereotypical, and RACIST comments that fashion designer, Marc Jacobs, has made in response to using pastel colored faux locs on his models for his 2016 NYFW show. Here's my thing about this, I am an artist myself so I can understand when designers, dancers, artists, etc. take something and turn it into something beautiful. But if you're going to use a culture, you have to do it RIGHT. Now Marc Jacobs artistic activity wasn't even the issue, it was the COMMENTS. Take a look down at the atrocity down below...
So let me address this ass hole on each part of his racist ass comments. One, white people take and take from other cultures and never gives credit. Examples:
Number Two, Black Women wearing their hair straight. Okay, FIRST OF ALL *MEHGAN FROM BGC VOICE*, Black Women have been FORCED to wear their hair straight by white counterparts such as YOU. My people literally cannot get jobs because of their locs but you wanna talk about straight hair on black women. When you get fired, don't get hired, or get demerits because of your natural hair, then you can talk. There was literally a law passed that people can legally NOT hire or FIRE black people because of their locs, read more about the case here.
Number Three, the I don't see race thing you people try to pull BLOWS ME! You have black and white vision or something? With those shades in your foundation range, I can clearly see how you can say you don't see color. *Picture Below*
Any true artist would acknowledge the fact that everyone is different and embrace it. That bullshit ass, "I don't see color" mess is so annoying, Just like All Lives Matter! If anything, Marc Jacobs along with the rest of his colleagues with the same mentality are the narrow minded ones by not even listening to the people of the culture you're stealing from concerns.
Now as I said, Marc Jacobs is officially cancelled and I won't, along with countless other black women, be spending my hard earned money towards his products. Which kinda sucks because his lipglosses are bomb lol. But I also wanted to give a huge shoutout and say I have earned so much respect from Jackie Aina for speaking out against Marc Jacobs. As you know she is a huge beauty guru who is on his PR list. I respect her so much for putting her morals and culture before her sponsorships. Take a look at her video below.
With that being said, Thank you for reading. Until Next Time!
