Do you think these Dolce and Gabbana earrings are racist?

Yesterday we had rib-gate courtesy of Karlie Kloss, Greg Kadel and some overzealous airbrushers at Numéro, but today we have another controversy on our hands. Or, er, should we say ears?

Dolce and Gabbana has been accused of racism due to a pair of earrings in the new spring/summer 2013 collection that reportedly resemble Blackamoor artwork which is said to glamourise the slave trade.

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana were quick to defend their collection though, and confirmed that the earrings were in fact an homage to the Moors (Muslims who came to Sicily in the 10th Century.)

Do you guys think the earrings are racist or do you see where the boys’ inspiration came from? Let us know your thoughts.
