Let’s Step On the Africans…
Thank you Dior, for reducing the population of the continent nothing more than worthless pawns to be exploited in your fashion show as the heels of your shoes. And should you try to deceive me with your cock and bull story about celebrating African culture, consider how interesting it is that in your fashion show celebrating “African culture” only ONE of your models was black.
*UPDATE/NOTE: This is in response to something Lolia said and I think it might be causing some confusion. I am not offended by the fact that Dior is experimenting with African themes (okay, I admit I’m a bit annoyed, but that is not the point). The symbolism of these shoes should be clear enough to anyone. If a political satirist had cartooned these shoes he couldn’t have done a better job.
The West has been “stepping on Africans” for a very long time now.
