Dumb racists are hilarious to laugh at, especially when they wear FUBU to a Confederate-flag rally in Stone Mountain, Georgia. FUBU is the acronym for "For Us By Us,” a Queens, New York based hip-hop fashion brand, founded by four Black entrepreneurs to promote fashion within the African–American community.
Instead of fuming over the ignorance of this particular Confederate-flag-toting individual, let’s take a closer look at what exactly this man was trying to say.
When pressed by reporter George Chidi, on whether he knew he was wearing sneakers created by African–American entrepreneurs, the unidentified Confederate-flag waving supporter immediately got on the defense: “Them shoes that you probably wore was designed by a white man back in the 1920s! I don’t care if a Black man designed my shoes.”
He then goes on to say, “But does that make you stop wearing them shoes because a white man designed them?”
To be honest, this guy is actually starting to make some sense. It shouldn’t matter who designed the shoes you put on your feet, if you like something, then wear it.
Then he puts his FUBU wearing foot in his mouth, this time sounding real ignorant saying, “I hate not you, but I hate what your people are doing to this country!”
“My people?” George defensively questions.
Way to lump up the entire African American community and blame them for the troubles of America. If this racist man could just stay on the first point he originally made, maybe something would click in that brain of his. It doesn’t matter what color you are, we all need to be celebrated equally for the good contributions we make to society.
