Marc Jacobs inspired what now?

Sigh. As upsetting as it is to see cultural appropriation winning in the mainstream while we are criticized for the very same styles that always find their way onto white bodies and receive mass accolades, (cornrows, Locs, timbs, north face coats, baby hair, ‘tribal’ prints, etc) I choose to laugh at their love/ hate relationship with us/ our culture and give credit where it’s due because no one will do it for us. With that said tag your beautiful Bantu knot/ loc knot flicks with #ITaughtMarcJacobs for a chance to be featured and let’s bring some levity to this all too common  occurrence of cultural theft for profit and popularity with no regard to the originators. #bantuknots #locknots #CultureVultures #Appropriation #TwistedMiniBunsAreNotAThing
