Of course it’s not fair. But get a clue. That is the society we live in. Does it matter that much what people say and how others perceive him? If so, then the type of clothes he wears isn’t the problem he needs to be dealing with. You’re making a very broad generalization about the different brands of clothes; as if there is nothing in between Abercrombie cargo pants and Fubu T-shirts. Well there is. What abut every-day, normal jeans or tennis-shoes. Clothes with no brand names plastered across the front. Clothes that don’t advertise his outward appearance. Clothes that don’t make him look ‘black’ or like the ‘typical rich white-boy.’ There are other options. You need to take your boyfriend to the the store and buy him some Eddie Bauer jeans and some Adidas running shoes.
