I know Fashion is supposed to be seen as Art, but what are we supposed to think when we see things like this?? The first thing that comes to my mind sure isn't ART!!! .. smh...
It's not like their aren't a plethora of African models all around the world who could have taken even better photos.. So what message are they really trying to portray. I am not sure if this was meant to be racist, but Europeans always have a funny way of doing things. I am sure they believe that it is high fashion and rolling thier eyes at our ridiculous American ignorance..
Its like we are always taking one step forward just to take 50 steps back.. I mean didn't black face take place in the late 1800's?? Wasn't that like over 100 years ago..?
Do you think this black face Vogue photo shoot is racist..?
