White Girls in Headdresses

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, Mar 21, 2013 at 9:14 PM

I was trading in clothes today on Hawthorne, browsing. At the buy counter I heard a lily white employee vapidly drawl "We're buying a lot of native Navajo patterns and prints."
Bitch, that is racist and it's cultural misappropriation. The Tribes have enough problems already, so please don't make our traditional wear your outfit for The East End. It's fucking offensive.
Wearing a headdress if like wearing black face. Respect it, and us.
