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
WHAT THE FUCK!
Nah.What the actual fuck!!!!!!!lovelyandbrownI feel like you should see this. This needs to be a big deal!
oh look. She’s white.
they’re talking proportionality though, not actually saying she’s the most gorgeous being on the planet. Like idk what to tell you.
As if common POC features such as: eyes that are “too small”, lips that are “too big”, faces that are “too oblong”, noses that are “too wide” or “too long” etc. etc. don’t fit into the category of disproportionate…
As if what is considered proportionally acceptable isn’t heavily leaning in the European direction…
she’s not even that cute???
Anne Hathaway with The Princess Diaries producer Whitney Houston
Please tell me you knew she was a producer in this movie.
Girl yes, this and the Cheetah Girls.
Didn’t know either of that.
Whitney cared about uplifting young women and mentoring them. Her doing these movies was just an example of how much she cared.
It bothers me how this isn’t promoted, like everything else the world knows about whitney.
^^^^ there you go… Smh.
I am deeply angered by the fact that Emma Sulkowicz (who no longer has the privilege of anonymity) would be punished by Columbia University for publicly disclosing her rapist’s name more severely than her rapist was punished for actually raping her.
We should all know his name. Not hers. Still, I am genuinely impressed with her performance piece, and I sincerely hope it proves effective.
