Crystal Renn pretends she is Japanese

Elementary school kids can be so racist. I know. I was one of them. Call it peer pressure. Someone would press their forefingers against their temples and pull at the skin and everyone would join in. Japanese eyes were angled higher. Chinese eyes were just horizontal. Koreans were a nonissue. We were ignorant kids, man, even if we did attend an international school in the Gambia.

But we were kids, easily impressionable.

There’s no excuse for this racist ish. When will you stop, high fashion? When will you stop pretending you can get away with these things?

UPDATE: Crystal Renn says she was not being racist.  Racialicious thoughtfully disagrees.
