Re: WWE Superstar Calls Out H & M For Racial Profiling!

Given the other kid's reaction, don't think this was an accident. Either way, a stupid thing for a company to do.

Re: WWE Superstar Calls Out H & M For Racial Profiling!

bit odd that the tiger jumper is all "survival expert" whilst the other one simply says "coolest monkey in the jungle" which sounds condescending and mirroring of what the board is explaining about the most extreme stereotypes.

just seems odd to me considering the point of "enduring stereotypes", almost like they tried to carry that message of stereotypes over into the hoodie image and made a very poor judgement. Like its been said why is the other lad looking all shocked?

I would like to give the benifit of the doubt here and and say it wasnt intentional but there are a few things here that are abit too coincidental so I wont say one way or the other.

even if it is a mistake then someone shouldve noticed it just remove all risk of it being taken the wrong way if they didnt think much past it simply being an animal themed hoodie.

Agreed.

Yet it's quite sad that people immediately see evil in everything

To completely deny any sort of possible racist connection and even doubt the possible intent shows that the issue is with you.

Like, I get that the H&M people should have probably done a double take or revision to ensure that their ad didn't step on toes or anything, but like...come on, to say this was intentional?
Fucking please.....No white person is offended by the term cracker. It's the least offensive term in the world. Monkey on the other hand? Highly racist and offensive towards black people.

Re: WWE Superstar Calls Out H & M For Racial Profiling!

If the black kid was in the monkey shirt it would be racist, if he was in the other shirt they'd also be called racist, there is no win win, if you look for racism/sexism you will find it.
