Oh Hillary…

You’d think Hillary Clinton’s campaign would back away from trying so hard to be down with communities of color after [email protected] clapped back when the Clinton campaign said the candidate was “just like your abuela,” or when she switched her logo to honor Rosa Parks by putting her back on the bus and Black folk were none too pleased.

Still, in an effort to show a bit of cultural competency, Clinton’s camp incorporated the Kinara and the seven candles representing the Nguzo Saba, or principles, of Kwanzaa. While Clinton’s campaign may have been attempting to show how inclusive they are, the whole thing backfired.

Of course, it also spawned a hilarious hashtag: #NewHillaryLogo.

It wasn’t all fun and games, though. Writer and anthropologist Victoria M. Massie broke down why Clinton’s Kwanzaa logo was so problematic.

Hopefully Clinton’s camp was listening.
