The original meaning of FUBU was five urban brothers united. People gave it the name "for us by us" as it started to gain popularity. You even stated this on your post. How can you call this racism? You contradict yourself buddy

In my honest opinion, the african american people can have whatever they please made for themselves. What bothers me, is that if a caucasion made the exact same clothing brand with the exact acrynom, the clothing brand would be instantly boycotted and thrown off the market. As long as it is made by an african american though, it is perfectly fine and no harm, no foul.

numero uno, your name is really Elmer. Elmer? swear to God?
y dos: you are from Perris or your dns is routing through Perris and you could be from Hemet but I suspect you are actually from Perris as most Hemet IP's get routed for only a short time and further away....
now who here would believe that a white guy named Elmer from Perris might be a bit prejudiced? LIKE MAYBE THE WHOLE HUMAN RACE WOULD THINK A WHITE PERSON FROM PERRIS IS PREJUDICE....?? YA THINK HUH HUH HUH?
hey Elmer Fudd, this here is the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and we have free enterprise or capitalism and FUBU can do anything it wants homey.... seems like FUBU FUBAR your little shell of a world...
I hope FUBU makes bank and plenty of it.... I can say with almost 100% certainty that they have more money than you... in 2009 they 350 million. that could probably buy half the foreclosures in Perris.
?Dude please, you African Americans think you got some kind of monopoly regarding wht the white man done to yo asses. Fo yo info bro, lots of different folk had a lot of shit done to their people. The problem is most of you stupid fuckers think your entitled to reparations. If that's the case then I want mines. Why don't you People stand up in a positive way like Daymon john and make a living fo yo self instead of filling up the prisons.

My god there are some morons out there. Please educate yourselves before spreading falsehoods. First, the "for us by us" does not elude to race. It describes hip hop culture. Was it targeted toward black people? Yes, but it really does not evolve around race. Look up quotes by john, you'll see. Second, the company exists mainly in Korea where it has become a trendy fashion revolves around music culture. They do millions of dollars in sales in Korea, which is the mainstay of their business at the moment. Explain to me how that is a racist company, you ignoramus.

Hi everyone, are you not sick of every thing having to be race based, so what if he's proud of his color, that doesn't mean he's racist, I'm white and if I really checked into it, I'm sure there's a few other backgrounds mixed in there to, but to look at me, I'm white, nothing wrong with being who you are, and changing with what works, good for him ,and fubu.

I have been purchasing FUBU clothng since its onset. It was never created to target one race. Anyone with any marketing knowledge knows that to do that would be the end of that creation.
Those of you that make everything a race, nationality, and/or gender thing must have sleepless nights. Give it up already. Don't you have anything better to do with your lives, ie., work, hobby, raise a family, read, etc.
I feel so sorry for all of you.
So BET has been on how long now? And the original post does have some merrit. Now think for a second how long Tommy Hilfigre would have stayed in business had the brand been Tommy Hilfigre FUBU knowing it meant "for whites by whites"?

This is so dumb. black people market there product for black people. White people market products for white people. example how many black people are out buy confederate flags? You market your product to what your customers are gonna buy
