    So some special snowflake freaked out because of the number 88 and a lightening bolt on some forever21 products because she thought it was Nazi propaganda. Yet a simple look into the company makes that idea totally stupid.

    https://www.yahoo.com/style/forever-21-t-shirt-racist-symbols-160712145.html

    Lets see who created Forever21
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Do_Won_Chang#Career
    site:forever21.com 1988
    site:forever21.com 88
    They use 88 and 1988 a few times in their product lines, wonder what that could be about.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1988_Summer_Olympics
    Host city Seoul, South Korea

    Anyone with some basic knowledge of the 1940's would understand that making such claims would be stupid to make about Forever21. With people not wanting to learn basic information and taking the time to do some basic research, its no wonder why its easy to trick people to buy stuff.

    Some people just can't help themselves and call the racism card on everything. They're just as delirious as the people, who see conspiracy theories everywhere and in everything.

    She (Alton) had her reason though: "I’ve seen that tagged on stuff growing up and know what that is", which can be a valid reason from her own perspective, but from there only. Shit what happens to you as a child determines a lot of things later, i can accept that, but making wild accusations based on just that?

    The Hitler Youth haircuts, the undercut made a big comeback with the hipster culture and still is very popular among young males. Does that make them a racist? I don't think so.
    Hugo Boss was a member of the Nazi Party, his company manufactured (not designed) nazi uniforms. Yes, his company employed forced workers, war prisoners from occupied countries, which is a bad thing, but does that make anyone who's wearing his clothes now a racist? I don't think so.

    If i were Forever 21, i'd have left the clothes on the rack and subtly told the two ladies to take a hike, because they're being stupid. Plus file a lawsuit against them because of slander and make them pay for their stupidity.

    "Alton put it more simply to reporters: “Facism isn’t fashion.” - This is plain stupid too. It is part of fashion, fashion history like it or not. The nazi army had one of the most fashionable, if not the most fashionable uniforms of all times. If we remove all the negative connotations, they looked kick ass tbh.
    It's still a subculture, just like skaters for instance. They both have a very distinctive look.
    But what does she know about fashion at all, when she shops at Forever 21?! lol

    The other lady is a smart one too: “There’s a lot of anger right now in our country. And there’s potential there’s going to be violence because of this,” she (Lopez) said.
    I mean wtf lady, nobody would have batted on eye, if you two didn't stir the shit and there wouldn't have been any chance for violence, which is not even a valid fear in this case methinks.

    Adidas creator was a nazi, as well as the founder of Porsche. Volkswagen was literally created by the Nazis themselves, how many hipsters do you see driving a freaking Volkswagen.

    I bet you could sell a shirt with the rising sun flag, 1644 or 731 on it, as well as the Japanese characters ken and hei on it, and they wouldn't even notice a thing "wrong with it".
