Race, Culture, and Identity in a Colorstruck World
Gap have withdrawn this product after complaints from Native Americans & non-racists because Manifest Destiny was a policy of white Anglo-Saxon subjugation and conquest of the American West which led to the death of many Native Americans. It was Genocide dressed up sweetly. Genocide. Gap might just have well have written “White Power.” The ‘designer’ Mark Mcnairy tweeted last Saturday when complaints were raised “MANIFEST DESTINY.SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST.” neither Mcnairy nor Gap have issued a public apology publicly to the Native American people, nor has anyone explained how Gap should have thought it appropriate to market this t-shirt with its hateful message worldwide.
