TKC QUESTION: IS HYVEE COMMITTING CULTURAL APPROPRIATION BY WAY OF KANSAS CITY CHIEFS QB PATRICK MAHOMES WIG HEADBAND?!?!



Call it a curly hair Kansas City controversy.

First the background . . .

Fox4: Mahomes wig headbands go on sale at KC area Hy-Vee stores

Deets:

The Chiefs quarterback helped design new headband wig sets with Ultimate Athletic of Parkville.

They feature a nylon headband with Mahomes' brown and blonde highlighted curls. They're sure to look great in the stands at Arrowhead or home on the couch watching the game with friends.

Already, we're getting a few negative notes on the hairpiece:

"TKC, did you see this? Looks kind of racist to me. I guess he helped design it but it seems like only the same kind of horrible person who would wear a Native-American headdress to the game would participate in this kind of dress-up. Insulting."

And so, while locals suffer the last pre-season game of 2019 we ask . . .

WILL YOU WEAR THE MAHOMES HEADBAND OR IS IT A SKETCHY PROMOTION?!?!

You decide . . .

Of course a lot of people would wear it. DO NOT be such a hater. Some people just want to go to the game and have fun.

^^^ I imagine that many of the bald, old-farts would rather have something more attractive on their head. Mahomes gets another paycheck. Everybody wins.

I was waiting for some douchebag to ask this question. I'm disappointed it was you Tony.

7:57 I think you meant the bald millennial ‘s and the gays pretending that they are sucking mahomes dick when their boyfriend or even worse, their husband is wearing it! Haha!

Obviously he wasn't told about America's 10,000 years of slavery and about how the white man refuses to compensate all off these recently released former slaves.

There is no such thing as cultural appropriation. More P.C. bullshit. Math is math. Toilet paper is toilet paper. Imagine a religion that takes the scripture of another religion, whose language its followers are too stupid to read, and says "I am your messiah, because I understand your language better than you do," even though it cannot read the language. Because it is too stupid. That is cultural appropriation. But it is stealing one set of lies based on lies that it is competent to do lie about the lies. It is called Christianity. Fuck Jesus by the way. But the reality is that it is stealing something that was fake to start with. So fuck the baby Jesus! By the way, in 1619, Muslim slave trading was at its apex. Why doesn't the NYT talk about them?

I'm white and have very curly hair. How the fuck is homage to his trademark hair, that he had a part in designing, racist? Jesus, 2019 is so whack!

It looks a lot like my crotch. Weird.

Haven't seen any "Mahomos" wearing these, guess they're saving them for the "Big Game".

It's about as dumb as the breakfast cereal.
So no I will not be wearing the headband, but I will wear blackface to the game, is that ok?

The media keeps the Mahomes hype in overdrive, setting him up for a big fall soon. Early-season injury? Car accident after partying? His wall of collectible sneakers collapses on him?

All of this Mahomes hype is setting him up for the inevitable fall.

Obviously, Mahomes didn't think it was racist since he helped design it.
