The United States has a long history of discriminatory immigration policies dating back to laws prohibiting immigrants from Slavic nations and Ireland, the Chinese Exclusionary Acts, interning German, Italian, Haitian, and Japanese citizens at different points in history. Mass deportations of legal Mexican American citizens and immigrants under FDR. The Nazi comparisons are unnecessary given our own history regarding the subject. Over 80-90s years ago the United States tried to repatriate legal citizens back to Mexico.
It is as if Americans are blind to their own history.
Just in case you hadn’t noticed I’m expanding my blog a bit to include POC behind the scenes and decided to add pics of the designers to their runway shows. This lovely lady is Haitian/Italian designer Stella Jean. I’ll do a full bio on her in the coming weeks but I thought it would be great to broaden my blog’s intentions and show how POC have a hand in all aspects of the fashion world, albeit not as much as I’d like. Maybe it will inspire some of you <3 -Chaquita
