So now white women are "trophy scarves"?
Not me? That's Nate Hill (pictured), a 36 year old part-time artist. And that is how he concisely describes his project dubbed Trophy Scarves. The project is supposedly supposed to be a representation of relationships between black men and white women: That white women are trophy scarves to be won around black men’s necks as a ‘status symbol’.
The dude has stirred so much controversy with this latest 'Art' project where poses in a tux with scantily dressed (and some completely naked), petite white women
scarved draped around his neck. He says that this depiction is meant to arouse attention on the issue of "black men who might think of being with white women as a status symbol." And get this: He doesn't identify himself as Black.

“I don’t want to tell people what to do with their lives. I just hope they would examine their motives, that’s all,” says Hill.
So all this just so that people can self-examine their motives for dating white women? Then he calls this "a lighter, kind of a goofy way" of talking about how people see certain races as status symbols. I think there is nothing "light" about this portrayal of interracial relationships between black men and white women. Its super insulting.
