The Kardashians are the most recognizable family in America. The clan has been sharing their lives with the world since 2007 and show no signs of slowing down. The Kardashians are loved for their style and beauty and as a family unit, their contributions to the beauty and fashion industry are unparalleled. But the family has also been criticized over the years for appropriating black culture, especially after embracing trends like cornrows and full lips. Are they vultures?

The Kardashians have been given a pass to unapologetically sport the type of trends black people are typically critiqued for. Black hair has always been political; black women have been fired from their jobs for wearing cornrows. But when a Kardashian does it—it's cool, trendy and acceptable. 🙄

But now cornrows and curves are considered high fashion, and the family deserves a lot of credit for pushing social acceptance of curvy figures into the mainstream. Women of color have always been known for their curves, but even Serena Williams has been criticized for her natural physique. But the beauty of the Kardashians is the family's ability to break down barriers and embrace all aspects of beauty. Thick is in, honey! Snap, snap! 

Are they the best trendsetters of all time or the most well dressed diabolical thieves to ever walk the planet? Let us know by voting.
