Black America, please stop appropriating African clothing and tribal marks.
Zipporah Gene

I completely understand your point of view . However, I will have to disagree with it on the behalf of my myself and those alike .

When I wear african inspired items it is in no way shape or form for a style or fashion statement . I , being a conscious person understand completely where my roots lye and whom I represent . I wear african inspired clothing and accessories because, I am proud of my people … what we represent and who we are... My heritage does not stop here in America and that can be a blessing and curse at times . And when I do buy african inspired items 90% of the time I'm buying from a place who gets their merchandise from Africa or from an online African store . #culrural appropriation #africa #style #fashion #blacks #America #african american #culture #inspired #noappropriation
