Yesterday, Jones released a tweet saying, "Rather than partner with or carry "Becauseofthem tees - @Target instead created their own "Because of Them" t-shirts for "blackistorymonth." The post included one of the creator's tees and Target's imitation tee side by side.

I agree with Jones... Why not just do a partnership? The entrepreneur said she was reluctant to come out and say something, but she'd seen so many companies do the exact same thing. She ends the post on a high note by declaring "...The work continues" and I agree! I'm glad she spoke up! Target hasn't released a statement.
