Ending your collaboration over something that slipped through the cracks is a little much. H&M should be more observant, but this one instance doesn’t represent the company as a whole.

That picture is actually jaw dropping and if HM corporate and management are that incompetent to okay that I wouldn’t want to be associated with them either

How many times do things like this need to happen, before people stop labelling them 'honest mistakes', 'accidents' or something that 'slipped through the cracks'? These images go through MASSES of people before they're released. It's a problem that's not being fixed and brushing it under the carpet with these remarks doesn't help. Good on Abel for standing up for what is right. :clap3:

i really feel like this is just such flagrantly unintentional oversight on the part of H&M and not like they had some subliminally racist intentions

 

but look what it can do and the **** storm even something technically innocuous like that can cause. brands need to wake up and realize they HAVE. AN. OBLIGATION. to pay attention to why things are sexist, racist, or subtly discriminatory in nature. the 2018 culture simply demands it.

“Slipped through the cracks” Do you actually think anyone at H&M didn’t catch the fact that a black boy was wearing a hoodie that had a racial slur on it...

The photo is offensive because the child is black or ?

Any black person working in PR would have told them to pull this picture :rip:. Even if there was no racist intent, the fact that nobody saw the potential for controversy is the problem. Same with the Pepsi ads, Dove ads, and everything else.

Talk about an overreaction. I get that it's a sensitive thing but it's not like this was some clothing line created for black people specifically targetting black people to offend them. It's a sweater, that happened to be unfortunately advertised by a black child. 
If people truly believe that this had an obvious racist intention you should be out there fighting real extremism instead, at least that would contribute to something good rather than put down companies that try their best to be appropriate for all, even if it doesn't always work out.

Nothing slips through the cracks with a company worth this much money . It’s clear attention seeking because racial sensitivity is at a all time high . Because ideas are slim Af & originality is at a all time slow and social media is at a all time high .

Some of y'all are so hypocritical - had he not said anything y'all would've been like 'he's working with a racist brand'...
