"I love the native american culture:" racism meets bad crafts

i love it when my interests intersect. i'm big on crafting, and well, you know i how i like to make fun of racism. i also like to make fun of crafters. especially when they're racist.
if you're unfamiliar with - it's an online platform for crafters to sell their handmade goods. the blog "regretsy" is one of the best things to happen this decade - because we all know that handmade shit isn't always pretty.
here's the original posting. i don't have much to say about it, other than i was suddenly reminded of that book i was forced to read in elementary school - "the indian in the cupboard" - what was that?!

Native American Necklace

"I love the native american culture.

This necklace includes a young native american man who appears to be hunting... perhaps for dinner. or lunch.

He hangs from a rather long pale green ribbon in which I have strung some plastic beads and two feather charms.

I love this necklace. I want it... but I'll let you buy, if you love it too. "

These recent musical posts remind me, keep your ears peeled for the LightWeight Racist mixtape coming soon from our contributor extrordonaire, Dj WillieMaze!
