CHICAGO – The green H&M sweatshirt caused outraged responses, with some notable exceptions. Some white — and a few black — people thought it was “cute” and accused black folks of seeing racism where there was none. The sweatshirt was pulled from the site and only a few were sold according to an eBay listing only two were sold in America.
The sweatshirt is currently listed on eBay and the price is currently above $2,000 it is expected to sell for much higher the auctioneer claims the item is “Rare” because it is the “deadstock”. A term frequently used in the shoe community to describe items that are no longer made by the manufacture.
The boy’s Kenyan mother, who resides in Sweden (where they shamelessly host annual blackface festivals) told everyone to get over it. Black artists created revised versions of the ad with positive messages about the boy, crowning him a prince or king. The faux-black white woman Rachel Dolezal, who has been hawking black hair braiding services, lollipops, calendars and other pro-black wares, is trying to cash in on the controversy with her own “prince of the planet” protest hoodie.
