This Guy Is Casually Wearing Naked White Women As Scarves, Nothing To See Here

This Guy Is Casually Wearing Naked White Women As Scarves, Nothing To See Here
World

Finding the right accessories is an absolute must for the fall, and one man has taken it to the next level as far as ingenuity is concerned.

Nate Hill is making headlines for his new line of scarves, which are naked white women. No, not scarves with illustrations of naked white women on them, but rather living, breathing, naked white women he wears around his neck.

“I wear white women for status and power,” reads Nate Hill’s mission statement on his NSFW Trophy Scarves website.

Hill puts the naked white women over his shoulders in a fireman’s carry, and then poses for photographs. He even does home visits.

This isn’t the first time Nate Hill has addressed the status symbol being with white women is for black men in America, as he compiled mentions of white women in rap songs on his Soundcloud page.

These stunts are ways in which Hill addresses the social stigma attached to interracial relationships, in addition to bringing to light how white women are regarded as a status symbol.

On the original VICE story, commenter Iman Carol Fears eloquently explained the reasoning behind Trophy Scarves:

“This art project is a parody of people (black men in particular) treating white women like status symbols. A white woman isn’t a trophy; she’s a person. White women (and women of color with “whiter” features, like straight hair, thin noses, etc..)ARE the beauty standard in most parts of the world, and that’s why a lot of non-white men are kinda obsessed with dating/marrying white women just for the sake of dating/marrying a white woman.

“Marrying/having a relationship with a white woman seems to be something many successful black men do immediately upon gaining success (Kanye and Kim Kardashian, A$ap Rocky and Iggy Azalea etc..) and they do it for a number of reasons: because white women are the beauty standard, because of internalized racism, because they want children with lighter skin than their own so that their children don’t have to go through as much discrimination as their black parent. That’s what this art piece is criticizing.”

What’s your take on Trophy Scarves? Is it a deep-rooted social commentary or just a publicity stunt?
