Copycat Caucasions Claim Old Trend As New Look

In Gentrification Today: #Wypipo Have Officially Gone Crazy

First Babyhair And Braids. Now Slides And Socks?!

As if taking “foot tours” through Brooklyn for the entertainment of Caucasians wasn’t enough, a recent Twitter moments headline read…

“Dont fight socks and sandals… considered the go-to look for suburban dads, socks and sandals are being embraced as s spring look.”

*Rolls eyes*. I mean seriously, this can’t be the new trend! Black folks have been wearing socks and slides since the beginning of mankind.

A young man named Elis Matthews tweeted a picture of someone at his church in Nike slides and matching socks and was fascinated by the combination. He claims he had no idea it was a trend. The “story” was picked dup by a publication and advertised in Twitter’s news section, which sent Black Twitter into a frenzy. It’s official. The cultural appropriation is at an all-time high. SMH. Hide ya fashion!
