Anything and everything is racism now. Even your underwear and band-aids. You can’t make this crap up anymore. Check it out…
White privilege is everywhere, even your bra, according to the editorial board of the University of Oklahoma’s Daily.
That’s because the fashion industry has defined certain colors as “nude” or “flesh-colored,” the editorial explains:
Imagine this: you are a young African American woman who has run to the local department store to grab a “nude” colored bra to wear under a sheer outfit, say a game-day dress or a work interview blouse. But when you get to the store there is no “nude” lingerie, at least not for you. Bras in slightly different shades of pale peach abound, but there are few to no options for darker-skinned women and they aren’t advertised as nude-colored. How would it make you feel that the fashion industry and society at large has based its ideal of nude on Caucasian people? That the color of your skin doesn’t count as “nude?” …
Or think about nearly every advertisement you’ve ever seen for “nude” makeup or “flesh-colored” clothing? What exactly was the tone of those flesh colors? Almost definitely not shades of brown or anything darker than a pale pink, which is ridiculous considering nearly a third of the U.S. population was non-white as of the 2010 census.
The board is also bothered by Band-Aids.
