woke up today to white people being disgusting. they’re marketing important cultural items as fashion and refuse to listen to the MANY people commenting on how that’s offensive. they also went on to lost a bunch of other things white people appropriate that are also super offensive as if that makes what they’re doing okay. the two comments in the middle are just two of many, but as always white people refuse to listen and think that they’re being flattering, despite being told the otherwise.
in short, I learned that regalrose is a disgusting company and people shouldn’t shop there thx
I don’t see what the problem is and if I’m uninformed on this I apologize but why is it wrong for them to sell items that people want to buy? I understand there cultural icons but at the same time shouldn’t people be able to buy stuff to express themselves as they wish ?
Someone please correct me if I explain this incorrectly.
With doing this, white people are taking religious and sacred items and turning them into mere fashion statements. White people have already taken so much from POC and it’s like an additional slap in the face. Like in the case of Native headdresses, “My ancestors raped and murdered yours and took away your rights, but I am still going to use this sacred headdress because gosh, it just looks so pretty!”
It is usually done without any understanding or care about the cultural significance behind the item. It is basically just a shitty thing to do in general.
(Again, if I explained this incorrectly, someone please feel free to make corrections.)
I’m curious if the person writing this is a christian at all? Considering how Christianity appropriated nearly all of it’s major festivals and beliefs from the pagans who came before them. People this is culture, as people become more homogeneous they take from other cultures and change the meaning. It’s how humans work.
I’m not sure if you’re referring to me with your question but no I am not. I used to be when I was younger but have since stopped believing. But the issue with what you’re saying is that people, no matter how much we ‘evolve’ or whatever, we are not all treated equally. As a result of the hundreds of years of european colonialism, there is massive racism around the world. This leads poc who practice their cultures to be stereotyped, stigmatized, discriminated against, beaten up, even killed (Muslims in their headwraps, Indians in their saris and bindis, etc.), until the white mainstream decides that they look cool, and then suddenly these sacred things that people hold on to are being bastardized and made into fashion statements. If we were all treated equally and all types of discrimination were eradicated, then sharing other cultures and melding them together would be acceptable and would make a lot of sense. But since there are still massive amounts of discrimination, this just won’t work.
Shops have been selling this stuff for you wears, fuck I used to have a headdress when I was like 5. Sorry that apparently selling some cultures items is a massive problem but I guarantee that if it was Japanese or Chinese or even aboriginal cultural items that this wouldn’t be a problem to you. It’s the 21st century sweetie, get out of the past, because you can’t blame a company and calling them “disgusting” because they were selling something that’s in high demand in other stores. I guarantee you would call American apparel disgusting or any other highly popular brand.
Hey that’s cool be a patronizing bitch alright alright. Hey, sweetie, ACTUALLY many stores DO sell japanese, chinese, and aboriginal cultural items and yeah I do have a problem with it all. It’s the 21st century sweetie and black boys are still being murdered for daring to be black in america, muslims are being called terrorists despite the fact that most major acts of terrorism against america are done by white people, chinese/japanese/thai/vietnamese/etc people are all being lumped together as one because people can’t be bothered to learn who is from where. It must be great living in your white bubble, but for some people, living in the 21st century is still pretty shitty.But then I’m sure you’re the same type of asshole to tell Jewish people to get over the Holocause and black people to get over slavery, so I’m not sure why I’m wasting my time.
The fact that you got so angry just proves the point that white people hate being told that the things they’re doing are wrong. Maybe you should get your head out of your ass, change your shitty attitude, and go talk down to someone else, sweetie.
Also yeah American Apparel is a pretty disgusting company so idk what point you were trying to prove.
Hahaha white people always say that same shit. “It’s the 21st century, get over it.” “Our blood runs the same.”
Like NO. GET THE FUCK OUT WITH THAT SHIT. It’s fucking wrong to take things that are sacred to a culture YOU FUCKING TRIED TO DESTROY then try and call that shit some fashion like YOU came up with that shit. They stay taking things and trying to make profits from it because they are too lazy to think and do for themselves to come up with anything originally and it’s fucking irritating. It is disgusting just like this girl’s comment. And if American Apparel was doing it they’d be disgusting too.
Since when would someone be afraid to call out a BIG brand for being just as dumb as any other brand? TF? I’d call them hoes out too, so what???
Why is it always white people though? Because it’s ONLY white people who buy these things. You guys need to calm the fuck down. If you have an issue with something then address EVERYONE who purchases those items. Not just the “white people” you all seem to despise so much. As much as you all want to talk about how white people aren’t discriminated against you obviously haven’t visited tumblr. The land of hating people who are straight white and cis. Like god damn I didn’t know that just because I was born this way it gave you a right to hate me. Flipping the roles does nothing but provide more hate for narrow minds to feed on. Is rather address the problem as a whole and not keep dividing everyone up into whatever categories you decide fit them. Jump off your high self righteous horse for a moment and really take a look at what your accomplishing with the hate you spread
As much as you all want to talk about how white people aren’t discriminated against you obviously haven’t visited tumblr. The land of hating people who are straight white and cis.
THEN LOG THE FUCK OUT JESUS CHRIST
It would be nice if poc had the luxury to just ‘log out’ of systematic racism.
Like god damn I didn’t know that just because I was born this way it gave you a right to hate me.
OH REALLY YOU DON’T SAY
THIS IS NEWS TO ME
OMG THANK YOU FOR ENLIGHTENING ME TO YOUR STRUGGLE
NOT LIKE WE AREN’T MURDERED EVERY DAY FOR DARING TO NOT BE WHITE
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL YES FUCKING MA’AM
