This is seriously getting ridiculous. Just yesterday we wrote about Pakistani designer Aamna Aqeel’s “Be My Slave” photo shoot, which showed a white model being waited on by a small black boy, and now we’ve just learned that the store Zara apparently thinks slavery is trendy too.

Huff Post blogger and culture critic/DJ/visual artist, Amanda Seales, brought our attention to a Zara necklace adorned with both gold faces and dark black faces with bright red lips that closely resemble slave and other historically racial-insensitive figures.
