In malls with their “nightclub beats and bare-chested guys.” Abercrombie and Fitch’s proudly exclusionary advertising, marketing, and hiring practices are discussed by the previous employees who note the store’s glorification of being “youthful, dainty, and white.” That’s what it’s expressed “Abercrombie established themselves in separation at every level.” The trailer clarifies that there will be an emphasis on the legal fallout of this culture of segregation and the Supreme Court case.
