In today’s “White People Appropriate The Darndest Things” news, Mane Addicts, a white style blog, attempted to rename Bantu Knots and credit them to Marc Jacobs.

WTH is a “Mini Bun” ??? These are called BANTU KNOTS… ??????????????????????????????????????????????????? … bye

But neither Twitter or Marc Jacobs were having it:

Check back next week when Mane Addicts come up with a new name for “afro”. I’m just at the point where I can’t even feign amazement at the things some white people do nowadays. White people just gonna white. And that’s all there is to it.

  • Blue Ivy’s beautiful bun

    Maneaddicts is clearly trash. They literally have a white woman with an “afro” on their timeline…ugh

  • Ann Gomez

    If black people stop wasting money on their products, maybe they’ll get the message.

    This is not a new practice but I predict more of it,on tumblr someone was posting for black fashionistas to be careful because industry people are going to be at Afropunk in NY looking for ‘inspiration’, Afropunk couture on a white model in a Marc Jacobs runway next season near you!

    • Vintage

      i don’t want to see any blond frohawks, Anonin!

  • The white collective has a lot to learn. Cultural appropriation by some whites is truly evil, wrong, and disgraceful. This once again shows the jealousy and hatred that many whites have of black people. Black people are the mothers and the fathers of civilization. That is why we have great culture that should be respected forever.

    It must be painful for them to actually give credit where credit is due when it comes to black women and our fashion and style especially as of late. They are so thirsty for our swag and flavor but want to hate or dismiss us at the same time. Whatever you want to call it or the technique you want to use to obtain them they are STILL Bantu Knots.
