The truth about racism in beauty and fashion
Systemic racism is everywhere, and the fashion and beauty industries are no exception. Brands need to move beyond performative allyship and address the inclusivity of their products and how their BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) staff members are treated. Here are some incidents and examples to keep in mind the next time you shop.
"Mike Lindell is begging to be sued, and at some point we may well oblige him," Michael Steel, a spokesman for Dominion, said during an appearance on CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday.
The bedding businessman, a longtime ally of former President Donald Trump, has continued to claim that the election was stolen from the former president and handed to Biden even as right-wing media outlets have largely reversed course.
Fox News, One America News Network (OAN), and Newsmax have backed off of promoting unfounded conspiracy theories that Dominion and a rival company, Smartmatic, illegally intervened to funnel votes to Biden, as the voting-systems companies become increasingly litigious.
Lindell, meanwhile, has forged full steam ahead, airing aon OAN on Friday that pushed an array of election-fraud conspiracies.

"This latest quote-unquote documentary that he aired is nothing but the same old half-baked conspiracy theories repackaged â€" and the truth is catching up with him," Steel told CNN.
As the two voting-machine companies embark on a litany of defamation lawsuits against media outlets and individuals who propagated conspiracy theories about the election, OAN went to great lengths to distance itself from the movie's claims. It ran awhich said that "Mr. Lindell is the sole author and executive producer of this program and is solely responsible for its content." The disclaimer also said that OAN does not endorse any of the film's statements regarding Dominion or Smartmatic.
