I remember years ago when my blog was still fairly new, I made a joke about Republicans, basically implying that you were crazy if you choose to be one. A woman commented and expressed to me that I should not make jokes like that because Republicans can read my blog and I shouldn’t offend people, and that I shouldn’t mention politics at all. But it doesn’t matter that Republican ideals and policies are offensive to me, right? Okay. Well let me be clear, if you are a Trump supporter (not necessarily Repub), I do not care about hurting your feelings. In fact, I would love it if you didn’t read my blog or watch my videos at all. My blog/channel is a hobby for me, it does not support my livelihood, and it’s supposed to make me happy and be fun. Communicating with Neo-Nazi apologists or bigots is not fun. So there’s that.
But with the most recent meltdown and rants coming from the Cheeto, I decided that something positive can come out of this. I love supporting black-owned brands, and I cannot stand who is currently in the White House, so why not combine the two? Check out these shirts from black-owned brands that will make your position on the current administration loud and clear.
1. Legendary Rootz #FDT Cropped Tee, $25. Buy it here. I mean…he’s not. Shrug.
2. Tees in the Trap The Only Donald Tee, $26. Buy it here. Where is the lie? I don’t see it…
3. Spring it On Tees Locked and Loaded Tee, $30. Buy it here. Because really, what the hell is taking so long?
4. Rebellious Black Soul Deportation Tee, $25. Buy it here. Seems much more logical than deporting good people because of their race or religion.
5. B.A.M.N. Don’t Let Your President Get Your Ass Whooped Tee, $25. Buy it here. Look, I do not advocate violence, but don’t start none, won’t be none.
Which one is your fave? What other black-owned fashion brands do you love?
Ever since the internet came out, I’ve been shopping online and dealing with small business. My mailman most likely thinks I have an issue because I get packages several times a week, and I prefer to shop online for most things. But if you aren’t familiar with shopping online and just started engaging with the wonderful practice, you may find some things confusing and frustrating. I get it, but I think it’s important that we take into account not dealing with huge corporate entities. Here are some tips to help you navigate the waters:
Dealing with small businesses can be a great experience when you set your expectations. There are only a handful of brands that I have had issues with since the early 2000s, and I hope that continues.
