“I’m really into Betty and all, but is “white power” something I’m allowed to wear??”
I live in Williamsburg, New York. I see people wearing all kinds of crap. The rules may be more experimental out here, but shouldn’t you be able to wear what you want? It’s almost a dare to put on the shirt. Once you’re wearing it, you own the phrase and create your own definition. What if I double dare you, triple dare you, physical challenge? C’mon, No one can resist the physical challenge.
“yeah, I might get one actually. However, worn by a white person at first sight it might raise some controversy, esp. in racially homogenous and white countries”
Aah yes. The question of controversy. I welcome it actually. I think in their own sly way these t-shirts are reclaiming what white power can mean. That’s what makes them awesome. It’s Betty White - the sweetest, most beloved, never known for saying a bad word about anyone woman I know. It reminds me of all the great rave flyers I used to get back in the day that would co-opt labels of major brands and make them into promotional material.
"What the F#*! is this? Are you a racist?"I didn't know someone could actually be a racist. I thought you just were racist. Not to split hairs. I'm just saying. And NO, I AM NOT RACIST. I am an African-American female. I hope that makes you feel better. Now GO GET YOUR BETTY ON! RETURN POLICY If you really have a problem with shirt's fit or color, let me know.
