Is "The Red Indian" latte art culturally insensitive?
“The Red Indian” via redditor SpamFilterUK.
“The Red Indian” is offensive. Without the name, I’d assume this was just “Sweet Rocker Dude Hair”, which, while also using a minority group as its material, seems fine.
My native friends would think this is funny as hell.
then again it looks more like something out of fern gully than it resembles an american indian chief.
I, for one, think that this latte art is both 1) Lazy and 2) Crazy. What’s next? Black face etching? On the other hand, it’s art, so who are we to censor art? ~s
Do you think this design would be appropriate to serve in a cafe?
I agree with irrelevant, but this design could also easily be turned into a really sweet lion.
I mean, it looks like the chief has a single tear running down his cheek, so at least the artist recognizes their history of pain and sorrow.
