A Confederate flag waving racist White men is defending his right to wear Fubu after being called out by a Black city council member in Stone Mountain, Georgia. George Chidi confronted the sneaker wearer at a Confederate flag rally.

FUBU is a clothing company founded by Black men, it’s acronym meaning, “For Us, By Us.”

“It doesn’t matter what I wear,” the racist fired back when questioned about his choice of apparel. “I don’t care what it’s by. I bought them … them shoes that you wore were probably designed by a white man in the 1920s. But does that make you stop wearing them? That a White man designed your shoes? I don’t care if a Black man designed my shoes.”

“You know I don’t hate you,” the man continued. “I tried to say that a while ago. I don’t hate not you, but I hate what your people are doing to this country.” In this instance, your people means Black people.

Watch the hilarious and equally sad episode unfold below.

When will these magazines learn…

Lupita Nyong’o just checked Grazia UK for brazenly altering her hair to remove any trace of kink, coil or wave. The magazine had invited the stunning actress to grace the cover of their November issue, but when the photo hit the ‘net there was one thing missing … Nyong’o’s natural ponytail.

In a lengthy IG post, Lupita let’s them have it, stating in part, “Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like.”

Read the full post below:

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style and texture.

For their part, Grazia apologized, essentially blaming the photographer.
