Racism is still very well alive today and is constantly roaring it’s ugly head in the media and fashion. After Nivea told us to “re-civilize” ourselves using their products, Italian Vogue wants us to wear “Slave” earrings which are “inspired by Africans brought to America during the slave trade.” Yes, you read that correctly.
The earrings are large gold hoops (pictured to the right), which would seem normal if they weren’t named “Slave Earrings.”
Who the h*ll over at Vogues marketing department thought this was OK?
As a black person do you feel offended and as a black woman would you purchase these earrings?
