Although acceptance for interracial dating is at an all-time high, the notion of the swirl still draws ire from various gene pools. Enter Nate Hill, who set out to make a statement in an unusual way.
Whether it’s a testament or trolling fame he’s after, his Trophy Scarves idea is sure to raise a few eyebrows among other things. (Sorry, it was there for the taking.)
To symbolize the perceived status quo that involves a Black man dating a woman, Hill’s Trophy Scarves are simply naked white woman draped around his neck.
If you’re not convinced that this is a mega publicity stunt, the fact that he makes house visits shouldn’t do anything to sway your opinion.
VICE caught up with the Brooklyn resident and grilled him with a few questions.
What’s “Trophy Scarves” about?
Well, there are people who see certain races as status symbols, and someone had to comment on that.
Is this a similar tone to what you were doing with “White Power Milk”?
Yeah. With “White Power Milk,” I just wanted to talk about how people see white women as a status symbol. With “Trophy Scarves,” I wanted to find another way to come at that. I guess it’s the same kind of satirical, tongue-in-cheek approach that I like to take with things. I like to talk about something serious but do it in a lighter, kind of a goofy way.
The aforementioned “White Power Milk” is evidence that Hill’s thought process has always been off-the-cuff. For $100, fans of the avant-garde occult can obtain milk gargled by various white women.
