Slim2010 saidShe seems really arrogant to me, but yeah. . . Good for her. .
She's thoughtful and honest about some harsh truths. Many people in the "race" threads would swear she is lying, though.
She does have a point, but even if "For the past few centuries we have defined beauty [...] as tall, slender figures, femininity and white skin", that really hasn't stopped the short, curvy, olive-skinned Kim Kardashian from becoming the It girl of this era.
You wanna know the real reason why the fashion industry is full of white women? Because the vast majority of women who buy these high-end products are WHITE. The richest people in the world are in Europe and white models can showcase what these products look like on white people. It's all about appealing to the highest bidder.
And it's not always white people's fault. What about Naomi Campbell, who worked very, very hard to clear the European runways of younger black models (eg. Tyra Banks, who retreated back to the states) in the 1990s? She couldn't stand the idea of sharing the limelight with other women of colour. But these days she's over the hill and hypocritically complaining about the lack of colour in fashion magazines. Sometimes people of colour are their own worst enemy.
