Why do some people continue to think of other human beings as inferior compared to them? This behaviour is not acceptable. It is a great shame to humanity to continue discriminating against others just because of the differences that we human beings posses. In fact the differences amongst should be celebrated as they make us even more richer.
Let us make the most of our differences; we can profit a great deal from the many differences that we human beings posses. This week a shameful phenomenon occured as explained below:
Singer The Weeknd said Monday that he will no longer work with H&M after the clothing company posted an ad of a black child in a sweatshirt with the words “Coolest monkey in the jungle” on the front.
Many people criticized the image on social media, calling it racist. H&M removed the image Monday and apologized to anyone it “may have offended.”
The Weeknd, who has a clothing line at the retailer, said on Twitter that he was “shocked and embarrassed” by the photo.
“I’m deeply offended and will not be working with @hm anymore,” he wrote.
Representatives for The Weeknd confirmed the singer would end ties with the company.
In a statement, H&M said, “We completely understand and agree with his reaction to the image.”
The Swedish low-cost fashion brand added that it would “continue the discussion” with The Weeknd and his team.
“We are deeply sorry that the picture was taken,” H&M said.
