  1. What people should know before reading, “Critical Conversations: Dr. Robin DiAngelo on White Fragility and Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism,”

  2. Wow!!! I can’t believe it took a person loosing their life no video for you to actually talk about Black people on your feed. I used to subscribe and support everything you did and then I noticed that you don’t support black designers at all. You are an immigrant and look how far you’ve reached over other talented people because of white privilege and you never used that privilege to help someone who didn’t look like you.
    Yes I know you’re going to say you have ONE black designer that you only found a year ago but that is not enough. DO BETTER and stop pretending like you are!

  3. @Tracie grace, what do you mean by do better? I’ve been hearing this a lot but haven’t heard any concrete solutions for what people should “do better”. While I don’t know the author of this blog personally, I feel that your accusations are unfounded. I normally don’t address comments like this, but I feel that they are undeserved, and wanted to call this out. Feels like trolling to me. Swiss Miss—love your blog. Keep it up!

  4. Ok Miss EM I see you’re trying to stand up for your friend and I get it. If you haven’t been an avid reader of this blog then you’re obviously Not qualified to pass any remarks. Go back and see how many black designers she’s promoted over the years? Go to her tattly site and look at her list of artist and see how many black artist / designers she has listed there. If she wants to know how she can do better she can just step out her front door and look around her for talented black artists they are not hard to find because SHE LIVES IN NYC! They are everywhere! Now that it’s trendy to talk about BLM she’s all over it! It’s 100% FAKE! donating money to charity instead of helping someone make a positive change in their lives by supporting their talents is just a sign of guilt. SO since you all want to know how to Do Better there you have it. HIRE BLACK PEOPLE She owns 3 companies for god sake!

  5. Tracie, I hear you, loud and clear. You are right, I have do to better. I have not lifted up black voices as much as I should have be it by hiring more people of color or adding more artists of color to the Tattly roster. You are right. I admit, calling my recent efforts fake hurts, but I can see how it can come off as that. I appreciate you speaking up. Thank you.

  6. @Em, thank you for coming to my defense, that was very kind of you. I do think though I have work to do. Grateful for your kind words though. Waving.

  7. Now that we are on the same page, I want you to think about how many black artist & designers get passed over just because of the colour of their skin? There are a lot of them out there. Many of them born and raised in NYC and have not been given a fair chance or a break and went onto doing other jobs they don’t like just to make ends meet. Just think that you’re an immigrant and you were able to move to a new country and still managed to thrive during an economic downtime. You are a smart marketer who’s standing on the shoulders of giants, the fact that you’re using Swiss modernism as your way through the door proves how white privilege is dominant in the design world. Think about what made that movement popular? The truth is we all have tainted histories but how we move forward is what matters and I hope that from this day forward things will change and you will not leave this legacy for your children. In order for people to feel welcome they need to be invited & included.
