Non-Traditional Black & White Scarf = Terrorists Win
Posted by Jack Stephens on May 30, 2008
In light of the recent ad pulling by Dunkin Donuts over Rachel Ray wearing a non-pollitcally aligned black and white keffiyeh, Holly blogs:
Although I have to say I laughed out loud at the phrase “hate couture.” The thing is, if you look at the scarf Rachael Ray is wearing in that picture, it doesn’t even remotely resemble the pattern traditionally associated with the keffiyeh, which resembles an interlocking net or a chain-link fence. Look, here’s Yasser Arafat wearing one… a fairly iconic and well-known image. But Ray’s scarf doesn’t even have a regular geometric pattern on it.
