This Man Wore Nude White Woman As Trophy Scarves

Let us give you a quick brief on Nate Hill. He’s the same guy who dressed up as “Death Bear,” then met up with strangers to take away their possessions that triggered bad memories; the same guy who delivered 100% candy crack to Brooklyn apartments while wearing a dolphin head, and the same guy who chucked half-eaten cheeseburgers at pedestrians in the name of performance art.

However, one of his most curious projects ended earlier this month:¬†Trophy Scarves, a series of photos depicting Hill draped with both nude and scantily clad white women.¬†“There are people who see certain races as status symbols, and someone had to comment on that,” the soft-spoken Hill told Vice. “I like to talk about something serious but do it in a lighter, kind of a goofy way.”

Of course, Hill received a mix of applause and the expected “this guy’s an asshole” critique. Still, there’s no denying the parody within the act of a black man draping a white woman over his shoulders. The project criticizes the dynamic between black men and white women, commenting on the internalized racism that still exists as many non-white men still view marrying white women as a sign of reaching success.
