Gucci, Prada, Moncler, Katy Perry Collections, and Burberry are just some of the brands that have released racially insensitive products in recent months. Many of the pieces in question resemble blackface, a practice that dates back to the 1800s. Blackface was used in Minstrel Shows, where entertainers would paint their faces black and outline their lips to make fun of black people. Blackface not only fed negative stereotypes about black people, but it also reinforced the idea of white superiority, leading to the drastic levels of inequality we see today.

After social media and celebrity outcry, Gucci, Prada, Moncler, Katy Perry Collections, and Burberry have since apologized and taken the pieces in question off their sites. Gucci and Prada have also announced diversity efforts like scholarships and a council to prevent products like these from being made in the future. Many aren’t sure if these efforts are genuine and wonder what else can be done to prevent future insensitivity in the fashion industry.

Can you stop judging Italian companies based off stereotypes made in America, just because you have a history of being dreadful and oppressive to black people doesn’t mean every other country has.

I’m still amazed at how people love Gucci products. If you have something of Gucci then, its considered cool or rich in this society while the products they sell are pathetic and at a high price. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!

I hate how people say this video is useless. It is important because people don’t understand how this doesn’t help the black community but send them back in the movement to stop racism.
