Rachel Dolezal Gets Backlash Over “Coolest Prince In The Hood” Sweater

Rachel Dolezal is still claiming she’s black and now selling “hood” hoodies? The “transracial” activist is on instagram selling her own version of H&M’s distasteful “monkey in the jungle” garment. Rachel’s reads “Coolest Prince In The Hood”. Rachel says because her own son was called a ‘monkey’ in second grade, she felt compelled.

Here is my protest hoodie to counter H&M’s “Coolest Monkey in the Jungle” shirt. Now available (link in bio). I had to… because my son was called a “monkey” in second grade, and I remember going to the principal about it. After educating the school officials about the historical context of the slur & demanding they operate under a zero tolerance policy for this type of harassment, the student was suspended. But, due to his parents being “offended” that he was disciplined for calling my son a racial slur, they pulled him from public school and homeschooled him. This hits home with many of us moms, I’m sure… So, I spent today designing this new hoodie that my little son will soon be wearing with pride. In production now, sale is on for pre-orders before they ship on next Wednesday.

Folks are not happy with this woman already for projecting her faux blackness into the world, now folks are livid by her choice of slogan. Girl, why “The Hood”??? And why are you trying to make money over this issue that has NADA to do with you?

What do YOU think of this?
