spookyarms yeah exactly like ignoring it is just going to allow it to keep happening and at least being aware of it means you can raise awareness for it/ and if i want to work in the industry and i know about the shitty side i can try work against it and make it a little better in the areas i work in :~)
i love fashion and i want to work in fashion but it is a really really gross industry for so many reasons and the more you get into it the more you realise how deep rooted the problems are and how many people don’t want to do anything about it it’s so gross
This is one of the most insulting things that I have every seen, it makes me so mad I actually want to cry. I can’t believe magazines think that they can just dipped a woman in brown paint, give her clothes from my culture to put on and have the audacity to call her an “African Queen”. Growing up I heard so may jokes about Africans and saw the negative stereotypes portrayed by the media that tried to make me feel bad about where I come from. Yet Ive noticed when fashion magazine want to do spreads portraying poise and exoticness they often turn to Africa ( proving time and again that Africa is more than the negative images you see in the media) but this time, to try and take parts of my beautiful culture and have a white women play the role just proves that beauty cannot be seen in our countries/cultures unless it is represented by White people.
Stop white people once and for all
"classy" blackface is still offensive and harmful blackface
WHAT THE FUCK!
Nah.What the actual fuck!!!!!!!lovelyandbrownI feel like you should see this. This needs to be a big deal!
