‘Nude’ in Oklahoma – Keeping Abreast of Bra Bigotry!

Imbecilic undergrads really need to be made a protected species, otherwise it’ll soon be open season on the dimwits, given the amount of hogwash they spout.

The latest example comes via National Review, an astounding little article on brassieres and the racist menace they hold for our society.



What bras literally hold is not an uncommon topic of discussion, usually among beer-drinkers, as the bra-owners shimmy into bars, but their deep ideological content is something that has never occurred to me, or to anyone I know, to think about, never mind talk or write about!

However, it’s a matter of grave concern to the editorial board of a college newspaper.

That august body has declared that bras are racist because they come in colors named “nude,” since non-white people’s skin isn’t that color when they’re nude.

  • Do these people HONESTLY have nothing better to do than probe psychological hang-ups in non-white people’s minds that probably don’t exist?

“How would it make you feel that the fashion industry and society at large has based its ideal of nude on Caucasian people? That the color of your skin doesn’t count as ‘nude’?” asks the staff editorial, published by the Oklahoma Daily, the official newspaper of the University of Oklahoma.


Is this the same Oklahoma wherein lies Muskogee, that place of pilgrimage for American patriots, where students ‘don’t burn draft cards down on Main Street?’



Merle Haggard’s greatest hit made Oklahoma seem an earthly paradise!

No longer, alas.


More importantly, what about red and green, or even royal blue bras, popular here in Indonesia, where they go rather fetchingly with the locals’ golden-brown skin…



…or black bras, which not only black girls, but brown, yellow and white girls, too, seem to be perfectly happy to wear? 



The board used the same reasoning to conclude that “nude” makeup, “flesh-colored” clothing, and Band-Aids were also racist….


Aaah, so next time I cut myself, I’ll refrain from bandaging the wound until I find some non-racist Band-Aid!
