H&M Sparks Outrage For Posing Black Child In 'Monkey' Sweatshirt

posted by The Joe Pags Show -

Clothing store H&M is in hot water after it posted a picture of a black child in a sweatshirt with the words "Coolest Monkey in the Jungle" on the front. The image was brought to light by New York Times columnist Charles M Blow. "Have you lost your damned minds?" Blow tweeted along with the picture. Reaction to the photograph has social media abuzz with responses of "H&M should've known better." 

Another sweatshirt that read, "Survival Expert" and "Junior Tour Guide" was modeled by a white child. A white and navy sweatshirt with no words was also modeled by a white child. The term "monkey" has been known as a racial slur for a long time. H&M has not yet responded about the sweatshirts or the models. Do you think H&M should've known better in this situation?
