If a fashion writer for French Elle is to be believed—and she is not—African-Americans weren’t stylish until the Obama family came into office. *blank Stare* Nathalie Dolivo writes in a post translated from the magazine’s website titled ‘Black Fashion Power, “For the first time, ‘chic’ has become a plausible option for a community so far pegged only to its street wear codes.” Dolivo goes on to explain why the so-called Obama renaissance of style is so ‘chic’. According to her assessment, it embraces ‘white codes’ while still making what she calls “a bourgeois ethnic reference reminiscent of their roots.” *SMH* The disturbing blog post has since been removed from Elle’s website, but the firestorm is just getting warmed up.
