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.
