Victoria's Secret apologizes for use of headdress
Associated Press ^ | November 13, 2012

Posted on 11/13/2012 7:08:53 AM PST by ConservativeStatement

Victoria's Secret has apologized for putting a Native American-style headdress on a model for its annual fashion show, after the outfit was criticized as a display of ignorance toward tribal culture and history.

The company responded to the complaints over the weekend by saying it was sorry to have upset anyone and that it wouldn't include the outfit in the show's television broadcast next month, or in any marketing materials.

Just like Fauxahauntus, Hollywierd’s idea of an Indian headdress.
The sad thing is that the “Native Americans” don’t even know the difference. Perhaps we should have protests over the Medical Profession choosing to use Latin derivatives.

Not guilty, although VC is increasingly using anorexic models. They used to be among the few that used "healthy" girls.

I love movies where disciplined men mow down violent savages. It is a metaphor for the fight of order and chaos in our minds and culture.

All it takes is for one person to claim “racism” and everything is shut-down.

Ridiculous. I know quite a few “native Americans.” They are proud of their heritage and see it as a compliment that teams will be named after Indian warriors, or that people will wear “Indian” style clothing.

I used to work an IT contract at the Foxwoods casino run by the Mash. Pequot Trube in Ledyard, Connecticut. The girls who served the drinks in the slot machine areas all wore a turquoise (or similar) mini-dress with matching heels, and a headband with one feather. The girls were all anglo, and hired for their pleasant countenance and ability to make nice with the customers as much as their ability to handle a tray of drinks. If they can mock their own like that for a buck, what’s the problem?

Redskins, Braves, Chiefs, Seminoles, Indians, feathers, tomahawks. Let's ban them all! Remove all Indians from movies, TV shows, and books. Never mention them again. Forget about them.

“Yep, sonny this is sure enough Injun summer. Don’t know what that is, I reckon, do you? Well, that’s when all the homesick Injuns come back to play; You know, a long time ago, long afore yer granddaddy was born even, there used to be heaps of Injuns around here—thousands—millions, I reckon, far as that’s concerned. Reg’lar sure ‘nough Injuns—none o’ yer cigar store Injuns, not much. They wuz all around here—right here where you’re standin’.

Don’t be skeered—hain’t none around here now, leastways no live ones. They been gone this many a year.

They all went away and died, so they ain’t no more left.

But every year, ‘long about now, they all come back, leastways their sperrits do. They’re here now. You can see ‘em off across the fields. Look real hard. See that kind o’ hazy misty look out yonder? Well, them’s Injuns—Injun sperrits marchin’ along an’ dancin’ in the sunlight. That’s what makes that kind o’ haze that’s everywhere—it’s jest the sperrits of the Injuns all come back. They’re all around us now.

See off yonder; see them tepees? They kind o’ look like corn shocks from here, but them’s Injun tents, sure as you’re a foot high. See ‘em now? Sure, I knowed you could. Smell that smoky sort o’ smell in the air? That’s the campfires a-burnin’ and their pipes a-goin’.

Lots o’ people say it’s just leaves burnin’, but it ain’t. It’s the campfires, an’ th’ Injuns are hoppin’ ‘round ‘em t’beat the old Harry.

You jest come out here tonight when the moon is hangin’ over the hill off yonder an’ the harvest fields is all swimmin’ in the moonlight, an’ you can see the Injuns and the tepees jest as plain as kin be. You can, eh? I knowed you would after a little while.

Jever notice how the leaves turn red ‘bout this time o’ year? That’s jest another sign o’ redskins. That’s when an old Injun sperrit gits tired dancin’ an’ goes up an’ squats on a leaf t’rest. Why I kin hear ‘em rustlin’ an’ whisper in’ an’ creepin’ ‘round among the leaves all the time; an’ ever’ once’n a while a leaf gives way under some fat old Injun ghost and comes floatin’ down to the ground. See—here’s one now. See how red it is? That’s the war paint rubbed off’n an Injun ghost, sure’s you’re born.

Purty soon all the Injuns’ll go marchin’ away agin, back to the happy huntin’ ground, but next year you’ll see ‘em troopin’ back—th’ sky jest hazy with ‘em and their campfires smolderin’ away jest like they are now.”

Strange, how many groups which seem to have a problem competing with evil white men are so easily offended by just about anything.

I am sure you can think of at least 3 groups which fall into this category and there are many more.

Offended = noncompetitive

Addendums to all current hate-crime legislation:

Any future wearing of beads or feathers anywhere on a (Caucasian, non-Hispanic) person’s body will be considered racist, and therefore assumed to be a hate crime.

Any assault or theft, or any other directly anti-person crime or perceived unpleasantness committed or suspected by any (Caucasian, non-Hispanic) person on any (non-Caucasian, or Hispanic Caucasian) person wearing beads or feathers anywhere on their body shall be considered a hate crime.

For the purposes of this legislation, hate crimes committed by Caucasians may be physical, vocal, or merely mental. Mental hate crimes committed by Caucasians, including the factor of mens rea, shall not need to be proved, and may be assumed.

For the purposes of this legislation, the terms “Caucasian” and “non-Caucasian” shall not be determined by scientifically proven genetic or genealogical analysis for either the claimant or the defendant, but shall be determined by any ad hoc panel of people who are deemed by the local and national media to be “in the right,” on the basis of their voting patterns and their abilities to scream about victimization the loudest and most persistently.
