why the fuck are they selling these at forever 21 The Lord is testing me I’m about to see some white girl wearing one of these pray for me
At least this might lead ‘white girls’ or whatever girls, or boys, to do a Google search and perhaps learn something about art, history, feminism or otherwise. Your run-on sentence will have to get over it.
Ok so that first comment is really pissing me off. I’m a white girl and I’m readily willing to admit that I bought the shirt on the bottom right, and I bought it because I love Frida Kahlo.
She is one of my all time favorite artists, and an all around badass. I’ve also been learning Spanish for 5 years so I loved that it had the quote in both languages.
You’re still probably asking yourself, what could this stupid teenage white girl possibly know about her?
My answer: enough to fill a book, but l think you should google her and educate your own sorry ass.
^ THIS IS HELLA FUNNY
white people profiting off of the image of frida and claiming to know more about her and what she represents than actual mexican people… ok
Please stop. Appropriating our culture is not cool. I don’t care if you know enough to fill a book. When we are offended by our culture and icons being used as fashion all you need to do is shut up and listen. BYE
Frida Kahlo hated your white asses. Oh my god.
Aye dios mio NOOOO
It’s literally exactly the same as Mexicans buying a shirt with Monet’s face on it. If you’re a fan buy it if you think it looks cool buy it if you like unibrows BUY IT ! No one cares if she hated white people literally I can’t think of anyone who cares. Seriously shut up. If she’s a famous artist then it’s not doing anything bad for your culture it’s actually doing something to make Mexicans look good. You should want everyone to buy this shirt and to learn about what she did
No it’s not the same at all. Monet was a white male painter. Frida is a mexican female painter. Frida Kahlo was ANTI CAPITALIST and went against the gringo definition of “beauty” (which these shirts would be considered something in that realm) it has nothing to do with a damn unibrow…..
White America profits all the time on poc cultures and cultural icons. So no we will not “shut up” since you apparently don’t understand the significance of issues like this.
