Profiting Off Tragedy: Kenneth Cole is a Symptom, Colonialism is the Disease

I just read this article that gives shit to clothing designer Kenneth Cole for making what he thought were cute tragedy-of-the-day marketing tweets — today’s tragedy being the USA’s chomping at the bit to invade and genocide Syria for the usual religious and legal-political delusions by the psychopathic colonist government.

Kenneth Cole’s recent opportunistic tweet was:  Boots on the ground” or not, let’s not forget about sandals, pumps and loafers.

And in 2011, it was:  Millions are in uproar in #Cairo. Rumor is they heard our new spring collection is now available online at http://bit.ly/KCairo -KC.

My thinking is, why single out and witch-hunt one dude trying to profit from tragedy when this is the pathological colonist-capitalist male supremacist order of things??  This is the culture!!  This is what is happening every minute of every day that we so proudly call business, freedom, democracy and economics.

“Profit” is made precisely by exploitation via land-rape (the endless pursuit of “resources”) and human enslavement (like the bodies used to make Kenneth Cole clothing).  This is what we have to end, on every single level that it exists and wreaks havoc on humanity.

Kenneth Cole is no different than the rest of the elite sheeple class baa baa baa-ing their way to riches.  Yes what he tweeted was wrong, stupid and insensitive, but it makes perfect sense and is actually the RIGHT thing to do within the colonist-capitalist regime in order to “succeed”.  The guy’s just parroting the values his mind has been mined with.

Kenneth, if you’re reading this, contact me if you want to un-mine your mind and leave a GOOD mark on the world, not the colonist-capitalist shit stain that your rich white buddies are making.  I have some good ideas.

DEcolonize!
