Stu Does America

The skirts do not look the same at all

Christian Dior came under fire over the weekend for a new skirt design some call a rip-off of a style that dates back to the Ming Dynasty.

On Saturday, Chinese student protesters in Paris threw a fit outside a Christian Dior store on the Avenue des Champs-Elysees. The deeply-wounded group live-streamed their demonstration on Weibo and WeChat, where they threatened to stage similar protests in New York and London.

According to the New York Post, the $3,800 black pleated skirt from Dior’s fall collection was inspired by school uniforms, but Chinese protestors say it is a rip-off of a Mamian or Horse Face Skirt that was popular during the Ming dynasty, which lasted from 1368 to 1644.

In this episode of "Stu Does America," Stu points out the apparent cultural appropriation and racist undertones of the protesters, not the skirt. Stu later points out that, aside from both items being skirts, they look nothing alike.

"Sharing of culture should not be controversial, especially when it comes to skirts that you can find at any Hot Topic for twenty bucks," said Stu.

Oh well. Until racists stop getting offended by skirts and other stupid issues, we must accept that everything is racist.
