Navajo Clothing Line At Urban Outfitters Causes Controversy

Posted: Updated:

Urban Outfitters has drawn ire in the blogosphere for a new clothing line some say is racist.

Sasha Houston Brown wrote an open letter on Racialicious describing the clothing company's Navajo line in supremely unfashionable terms:

This past weekend, I had the unfortunate experience of visiting a local Urban Outfitters store in Minneapolis. It appeared as though the recording “artist” Ke$ha had violently exploded in the store, leaving behind a cheap, vulgar and culturally offensive retail collection.

So what do you think of these Native American-inspired duds?
