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
If you Google black men, these are the images you see. 7 pics before you even get to one with a shirt on. What’s really interesting is when you look up white men, Hispanic men or any other race, you have to go through like 20 photos before you see any sexualized images.
Footage from the Kanye West Wheelchair controversy that the media is going around saying that he is forcing cripples to stand in his shows….
As you can see here it is complete bullshit…and the media is trying to control you just like what Kanye has been trying to tell everyone over the last year.
Please spread this video around tumblr. Lets give Kanye a good name.
