It resembles blackface. Just due to optics, get rid of it. 

There are so many designs that don’t have to resemble a racist image.

You really mean that sis? 

How old are you? 

 

I'm a millennial. It was only a joke. At least, it was mostly a joke. :)

You can perhaps evoke it in a thoughtful way (and good luck with who does that) but not when your essentially selling and profiting from it, especially a luxury brand like Gucci and Prada. 

 

That is like saying a pop star shouldn't profit from a song she has written about Trayvon Martin.

The sucess of an artist, or who purchases/appreciates their art, shouldn't dictate what kind of art they are allowed to make. In my opinion.

I mean, one thing is to think that is not black face, or that it was not her intention, but I see the pictures and it's completely impossible to deny the resemblence.

People are always so ready to jump with the "pEoplE r soOo sEnsiTive nOwadAyz" bs they don't even take a minute to look a little deeper into things.

You know what I'm actually super confused about, Someone fill me in please. If someone is complaining about these shoes being 'blackface' than why not complain about them being 'whiteface' too? Honestly. They are the IDENTICAL shoes, one black and one white/gold. Why are people only getting offended over the black one? Honestly. I feel like people are just trying hard to make so much drama and fake controversy. Unless I'm ofc missing something. Someone fill me in please. To me they are just shoes...

Whether it was intention or not - it looks like blackface and it would be tone deaf to leave it on the shelves. 

Period.

Not sure why nobody in her team would tell her that prior?? Like, "just don't do it in black colour, bad idea, gurl!" Or something like that?

The history of "whiteface" is not the same as the history of "blackface" which has been used to dehumanise, ridicule and help spread racist ideology (which in turn helped prop up deeply racist laws such as slavery and segregation) since around the 1830's.

A simplified version of this to illustrate this point is the difference between the Hindu swastika and the nazi swastika. They obviously resemble each other however they have a very different history. It's not the perfect example, however like the "white face" shoe and the "black face" shoe it is a good example of why although they look very similar they are very different.

We would regard the Hindu symbol as acceptable as it is part of a diverse range of religious traditions while regarding the nazi symbol as offensive due to the associations with extreme violence and anti-semitism.

We regard the white shoe as acceptable since white face doesn't have a history of discrimination and racism behind it while black face is regarded as intrinsically racist based upon a traceable racial link to slavery and racial segregation and so any imagery that seems to reference or resemble black face faces criticism.

Dumb is the people who see something to complain about on everything. it is a ****ing shoe with eyes and mouth, and it is avaiable on more colors. It is just another prove of how stupid is this time we are living in.

It.Is.A.Shoe.

If I put on a t-shirt with two eyes and a mouth... I am being racist? 

This is just ridiculous. These offendedbyeverything people... it is just becoming ridiculous.

I agree. The amount of people that get offended over things is insane. Here I am talking to someone who is offended by people getting offended over a poor design choice with resemblance to racist caricatures. This person is so offended they’re talking about slapping on the same features on a shirt to make a point. :air:

Far too sensitive.

I'm sure that if she released only the white ones, people would call her racist anyway because there would be no black people representation. U can never win with sjws
