We often get letters that go like this:


What’s so bad about Kimora? She seems like a nice lady. Maybe you should lay off on her… she supports a good cause now, Green diamonds. Maybe she’s turning over a new leaf! You guys are mean. Try going easier on her.

Smith “My Two Cents” Lee

We love getting feedback. And we love when The Disgraced do things to redeem themselves. But one thing we can’t allow ourselves to do is go easier on DISGRASIAN Hall-of-Shamers when they haven’t done anything to deserve it.

Kimora Lee Simmons had a shot at being cool. She was smart, like book-smart, an honors student that graduated high school on time even while jetsetting across the world as a full-time working model. She’s a mixed-race child, for whom we always have a very soft spot, because it’s hard enough to be Asian (whole, half, eighth, forty-eighth) without people barking down your hole about not being Asian enough or black enough or white enough or whatever enough. Asians are also categorically ricist and awfully hard on our kin of multiple descents. As a kid she was taunted with terrible names, maybe not for being FOBby or flat-chested, but for being ugly and mixed-race and looking like a “Chinky Giraffe.” Her mother was a Japanese war refugee in Korea, which is both sad and heroic, and means that Kimora has the same kind of painful-yet-distant family roots in a war torn mother land that some of our coolest and most interesting friends do. She was a fashion pioneer–one of the first almond-eyed models ever to grace the Chanel Haute Couture runway (something we’re not convinced Coco ever even thought about happening).

But a more Amazian version of Kimora would take that “chinky giraffe” pain and turn it into something meaningful. She would… respond to “chinky giraffe” the way we would, with a big “fuck you” or “wanna see this amazonian ching chong take an inch off your dick?” or a “take your ‘chink’ and shove it up your ricist fucking ass.”

Instead, she’s known for starting senseless fights, for reveling in money-grubbing and excess. And we just think that’s DISGRASIAN.

Has she changed?

I donno, looks like this week she’s called her ex’s new lady a “stupid bitch” for no reason (typical) and just got served by Macy’s for jacking up her prices (to make MORE Benjamins?)… we’re not convinced she’s changed so much.
