I also explained that it was comparable to seeing a person wear a Marine Corps Dress blue jacket, with regular slacks, just for the fashion of it. It is wearing an item of clothing or earned item that was NOT rightfully earned and it disrespects those that have put the proper effort forth and earned it.


He thought I was posting it because I was honored to see a shirt with Native culture on it.... I had to stop the conversation because he literally did not understand how it was offensive. I explained in so many ways but...you can't educate some I guess.
@Misscorinne86, you know, if you were to put a pair of glasses on you along with a similar bonnet, that image on the shirt could be you!
