“Racism Still Alive…”

Oh joy. An idiotic graduate student, Nathanaeli Nassimi, got her ass beat by four black chicks when she was caught wearing an “Obama Is My Slave” t-shirt. The girls approached her after noticing her blatantly racist tee and decided to give her a good old beating for being about as bright as a pile of bricks.

Nassimi ran away from them and called the “Apollo Braun” store on Orchard Street where she had purchased her t-shirt and complained about the attack to the employee who was working in the shop at that time. The employee agreed to give Nassimi the owner’s, relentless media whore Doron Braunshtein a.k.a. Apollo Braun, cell phone number and the still shocked Nassimi told him about the attack and informed him she was thinking of suing him “for all he’s got”. Braunshtein in return told her that he was very sorry she had been attacked, but that she could not blame him because as he told her “No one made you buy the t-shirt”. Nassimi said that she would come the following day and demand a refund for the t-shirt, which cost her $69. Braunshtein told her that he doesn’t give refunds because it is against his store policy.

I can’t believe a girl paid $69 for that shirt. I don’t even think the KKK would wear that shirt, let alone pay $69 for it. And now she’s trying to sue the shirtmaker. SMH

    WTF? There is just wrong coming from every side of this story! The girl for buying it and then blaming the store, the girls for beating her up (words would have better) and the owner for selling it!

    Whats wrong with this designer? First off it’s not even a desigh. It is 4 words in a wack ass font. This guy needs to be smacked in the face with a sock full of wet noodles and then hung from a 5 story project house clothing line.

    Serious, the girls should go and beat the designers ass next!

    Obama Rocks

    Nathanaeli Nassimi is my bitch

    This is a sham to get publicity.

    Mr. Racist gave her a shirt, put her up to claiming she was attacked and then arranged for her to file this frivolous lawsuit. The lawsuit angle was the only way the press would ever cover a story about a stupid man and his stupid shirts. IGNORE THIS IDIOT.

    This is just a clear sign THAT RACISM IS STILL ALIVE. Its takes a shirt for people to realize whats on the mind of MILLIONS OF PEOPLE. Just in case everyone doesn’t the world is run by PEOPLE OF EUROPEAN DESCENT and WILL ALWAYS BE no matter who ends up in the white house. I bet if the shirt said “LETS GO HOLOCAUST” or “JEWS ARE MY SLAVES”. The store would’ve been shut down the police, national guard and president would’ve have been called to action and the designer would’ve been Black Bared. But no because its a racial remark against a Black Man it doesn’t matter. What a great world and city to live in. First were gunned down by police offers then were put back in slavery SMH

    That shirt was an IQ test that anyone who buys it fails.

    I agree that the creation of the shirt was a publicity stunt, but why would a graduate student agree to have their name publicized in such a ridiculous/humiliating/racist context? I’d like to think that this was a case of caveat emptor– hipster beware of real life consequences of stupid fashion.

    dumb dumb dumb dumb…
    $69 for a lame ass tee shirt that you can make yourself for less?! i don’t agree with the message but is this what people consider “designer”. gosh, this country is going to shit as far as taste and design sense is concerned.

    That’s just dumb all the way around. I can’t believe that someone would wear the shirt out in public and then sue because of what happened to them afterwards. She had to know the consequences before she paid the $69 – especially if you’re going to spend $69…

    TO WHOOPie
    I am a white man and I am not racists
    And if whoppie Goldberg wants a segregated language; as she spoke about yesterday .. that only black people are allowed to use certain words.. then we all should be able to go back to segregation – seperate but equal – seprate but equal… this is what she really wants … To me she wants segregation and if she says its ok to segargate a language or words, the why stop there??? lets bring back segration.. we all should be able to do it
    I may never vote for a black person now because of her …
    I am not a racist – I am a white man … but if thats the way she wants it then so be it – I am following the lead of whoppie Goldberg and the Rev of god… Master Jackson and master Mharpton
    You want polarized society well now you got it – I will start from this day on
    Thanx for bringing me to lite

    I have to agree with The Daily Commuter’s words…the sense of style in this country is being washed further down the drain…especially if a poorly designed and even less intelligent shirt like this can get by as fashion. What a shame.
