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.
