Kimonos Are Now Racist

It doesn’t matter that the Japanese have long had a highly advanced civilization; the important thing is that they are not white. Therefore they are the victims of racism. Where racism cannot be found, it is easily manufactured — even if moonbats have to push self-parody to the extreme of declaring kimonos to be racist:

The Museum of Fine Arts Boston is canceling “Kimono Wednesdays” after protesters decried the event as racist.

In a Tuesday statement, the museum apologized for offending some visitors with the event, where museum goers were encouraged to don the traditional Japanese garments and pose in front of Claude Monet’s “La Japonaise.”

The museum said it had hoped to create an “interactive experience,” helping museum goers appreciate the rich details, embroidery and fine materials of the garments. It said similar events took place when the painting, depicting a woman in a kimono, traveled throughout Japan for an exhibition.

Of course kimonos aren’t racist when Japanese wear them. It’s like using the forbidden (but only to some) n-word.

Protesters denounced the kimono-wearing as not only racist but “imperialist.” Evidently Americans impose their culture on the Japanese by wearing kimonos in Boston, according to liberal logic.
