Celebrity Rapper Megan Thee Stallion was recently shown on The Shade Rooms’s instagram partnering with colonial-capitalist fashion company Fashion Nova (fascist nova).
Megan Thee Stallion is starting a style of jeans specifically for women who have a difficult time finding jeans that fit their long legs.
As Click 2 Houston reports, “a fan asked the rapper what size jeans does she wear in Fashion Nova jeans. Megan thee Stallion replied that she wears an 11, but “it’s a real gamble with the length.”
At the same time fascist nova is starting a campaign, Fashion Nova Cares, with celebrity Rapper, Cardi B, to donate $1000 an hour until May 20, 2020 to raise $1,000,000 dollars for those who’ve lost financial stability during the Coronavirus outbreak.
Fascist Nova started in 2006, but began growing using an advertising scheme, Instabrand—exploiting the application owned by billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, Instagram—using customers, influencers, and celebrities to simultaneously advertise new styles while also cheaply copying the trends.
As Pause Magazine reports on the owner of Fascist Nova, “Richard Saghian was thrilled with his success; he knew that the world of fast fashion was now moving at an even faster pace”.
Fast fashion, like Fashion Nova, uses colonialism to stay up to date
Workers’ rights organisation Remake uncovered that many of the producers in Fascist Nova’s supply chain have been laid off since the coronavirus outbreak.
In 2019, The New York Times reviewed internal federal documents–from 2016–finding $3.8 million in back wages which Fascist Nova did not pay to workers. Also mentioned in the article is the criminally low wages at $2.77 an hour.
This $1,000,000 of Cardi B’s wealth for fascist nova’s campaign seems more like a front for robbery than a helping hand to the poor.
Cardi B would not do this campaign if she would lose money, of course—the advertising for fascist nova will generate more demand and profit which fascist nova can pay Cardi B back for her investment into the public image of the company.
No amount of good natured liberal charity or songs by celebrities will actually help African and Colonized people survive in this white power system, which for hundreds of years used every means available to create new systems of oppression.
As revolutionaries, we know that billionaires and celebrities haven’t grown Fascist Nova, but those Colonized proletariat (many “undocumented”) who sew the extra long denim jeans create the weekly seasons of clothes the company boasts.
As many know, Los Angeles has a large spanish-speaking population of indigenous people—so called immigrants to the united snakes of amerikkka escaping the third world poverty of central and south american countries caused by neocolonial puppets of white power.
This exploitation not only hurts the colonized people of this land, but the extraction of cotton, use of plastics like polyester, dying of materials, as well as the regular washing of such clothes creates deadly pollution that endangers human and non human life on this earth.
As reported by UPROXX, a one cotton shirt uses the amount of water person consumes in two and a half years, about 700 gallons of water! While every year 1.3 trillion gallons of water are used to dye fabrics. 20% of the worlds water is polluted by colonial capitalist production of clothes.
Black Hammer Organization believes that the African and Colonized Proletariat are the only force capable of wrenching control away from the neocolonial governments exploiting the land and resources of us all to serve white power.
