I wake up this morning to this News Article…

Nike has been slammed for a cultural faux pas, with a new range of women’s sports gear creating the appearance that the wearer has a traditional Samoan tattoo, the pe’a, which is reserved for men. Some critics say the use of the designs is offensive, as they are sacred, while others have mocked the designs as manly and inappropriate for women.

Oi oi oi….Not only are those ugly to the days, it’s insensitive to our culture (in my OWN opinion). To the white man looking in - they think it’s just a design. To us it’s more than that. It’s a sacred thing - the Pe’a/Malu. So for Nike to go with this - EKFJKKEKFJDKFJE Kefs (tulou).
