Naomi Campbell is sick and tired of magazines like Vogue putting white women on the covers of their magazines. She said even when she became a supermodel, editors still put lesser known white chicks on the cover rather than put her.
She told reporters in Kenya that she's planning to open her own modeling agency. “Black models are being sidelined by the major modelling agencies. It is a pity that people don’t appreciate black beauty”.
“I even get a raw deal from my own country. For example, I hardly come on the front pages of London’s Vogue magazine. Only white models, some of whom are not as prominent as I am, are put on the front pages”.
The 37-year-old said she would not quit modeling until black models get the same attention as white ones.
Oooh…Anna Wintour's gonna get her. Naomi's right, but it's not only black models, it's Latin, Asian, Indian……I mean I don't think Vogue even puts models on their covers anymore.
And it's a bigger issue. TV, Film, Theater, they all do the same thing. I'll go see a Broadway show and there's like one non-white person in the cast. It's like they are the token.
Hopefully, Naomi will take her Blackberry and beat as many bitches down as necessary to change things.
