Vogue: Skinny White Models With “Quant Token Africans”

Posted by Jack Stephens on August 21, 2007

Carmen Van Kerckhove posts a blog about a commenter on the New York Times blog fashion page:

Wow, this commenter on New York Times fashion editor Cathy Horyn’s blog really summed up how I’ve always felt about those “Out of Africa”-type fashion spreads in Vogue.

American Vogue is a sad joke–the racism and elitist mentality of Vogue is astonishing. The few minorities featured in this magazine reek of tokenism and I would respect them more if they simply had no African-Americans, Asians or Latinos in their magazine. The fact that they hide their racism and ignorance with subterfuge offends even more.

National Reparations Day

Posted by Jack Stephens on August 21, 2007

Frances M. posts a blog about National Reparations Day on Oct. 10th:

As we all know slavery sucked. And the effects of such soul crushing devastation still haunt the United States today. Reparations is basically an apology from those who have benefited from such a hideous institution in the form of money. Who has benefited from slavery? All white people. Yes even you, your mama, daddy & so on.
