HSTRY Kneeling Santa Sweater

Following the success of the "Dabbing Santa" Christmas sweater last holiday season, we're seeing more and more hip-hop-themed X-Mas sweaters. The latest comes from Nas.

The rap icon recently unveiled an ugly sweater for Holiday 2016 through his HSTRY brand, dubbed "Kneeling Santa".

As you can see, the sweater features an image of a Santa of color taking a knee, obviously inspired by Colin Kaepernick's National Anthem protest. It also features the usual snowflake patterns, but with the addition of a raised fist.

The Kneeling Santa Sweater by HSTRY is available online in three colorways (black, green and red) for $45 USD. A portion of sales will go towards the The Center for Court Innovation, an NYC initiative focused on criminal justice reform.
