Okay , so recently i was watching the news, and i heard about the major clothing franchise Abercrombie and Fitch was being sued for discrimination. Belowis a video....i'm not sure if this is the exact case but this is good enough to get the point across.....




alright so after watching the video you guys can post your thoughts....

My Thoughts:   I thought its sad what happend to that chick trying to get a job...but what i thought was even sadder how Abercrombie requires you to have that certain "look" to be hired by them....BUT...forget about being hired by them.....the fact that you if you even wear their clothes people will fucken say shit to you..if your not cool enough...i personally never bought clothes from them and probably never will b/c of how socially conditioned them people who wear them are....

One of my expeirances was about,lets see....maybe 5 years back in middle school, idgotten this brown sweater that said urban wear....walked into school one day...went into class...and these dudes where like.....dude you wear that sit every day...obvoisuly giving me shit for wereing a "gangster" piece of clothing...but the reality was that i got it as a gift...and showing the respect to the person who got it for me was worth it...not giving a fuck what a couple of social conditioned faggots thought....

so id like to hear some of your guy thoughts

and maybe even spread the news to Tyler and see what he thinks about the socail conditioning that goes on with companies such as abercrombie...

thanx

That company is pathetic and so are most of its clientelle who buy the product to give off the "image." Over priced T-shirts that are suppose to tell the world "who you are," look how unique you are, you bought a 50$ t-shirt!!!

 i like thier polo's.. but for some reason my arm doesnt really fit..  But they are trying to give off an image and style as a company, and market it to people who wants to fit into that image. It's just all about marketing and making money. All the other companies does the same thing.

Wearing Abercrombie and Fitch does not mean you're socially conditioned. If you wear it because you like the style, or how it looks on you. It's fine. It's only bad when you wear it to 'fit in'.

Most people wear it for the reason to be cool. Its expensive, its hip and cool amongst the rich, white kids.

If you like their clothing, and their "ultra hip" store, then by all means, consumer away.

Ridiculous!  
Abercrombie has every right in the world to not hire a person based on their dress and grooming.  Nearly all large corporations have dress codes and we're talking about a retail CLOTHING chain.  I certainly would not hire somebody to represent my company that came to an interview wearing some crazy religious costume be it a yamaka, habit, tunic, or burka.   
then my friend your company will be shut down imediatley....companies are their to make a profit not discriminate and violate the law...thats why the lost the lawsuit

CRAZY RELIGIOUS COSTUME? ahhah, that is a joke. Ive worked in retail clothing stores(ie. Buffalo, H&M, MExx) and customers could give  fuk less what a person has on their head. I GUESS NOBODY in the middle east shops at retail stores because of the employees scaring away customers with their crazy relgious "costumes". What is normal to some is not necessarily normal to others, learn to deal.

Exactly. I dont give a fuck what the employees look like so long as they get the clothes I ask for in the sizes I want and are there to serve me when I need them. Plain and fucken simple. A monkey can work at A & F, infact a monkey can work at any retail job, so to not hire someone based on looks is bullshit.

If youre walking into an A & F or any Retail outlet with the idea to buy something, youre going to buy something, so long as the employee doesn't come up to you and tells you to go fuck your self.
