Perspective: Victoria’s Secret Has Been Accused Of Racism Yet Again


Perspective

Racism Claim

It is not surprising that racial denigrating and racial profiling is still alive and well in 2017. Black people are still seen by too many as second class citizens. What do we have to do to rubbish this flawed perception?  We continue to buy products from north America and our women in particular are ardent consumers of Victoria Secrets. So for this under garment giant with an international image to be accused of racism is disappointing to say the least.  We cannot accept empty apologies for missteps.

“There is no super race”  Hitler was wrong. I have long opined that “Racism is an affront to decency”.  Let us treat each person as equal. Under the sight of God we are all seen as equal.

Stop parading our women as if a cattle show … Let us display your fine products with dignity and finesse as we are capable to do like anyone else.  Give us a fair shake .. do not discriminate, try to integrate. We are world beaters on the track with world records and have world class beautiful women. Miss Universe and Miss World have recognized our black beauties.

Shame on you, garment giant Victoria Secrets … your despicable conduct is no longer a well kept secret. We are grateful for this exposure as it exposes your under-belly which does not project the most beautiful of images. Your corporate image is disappointing ly shameful.

This is our perspective. Let us hear yours. Feel free to disagree.
