      Think it would look less racist with a white girl? Maybe you’re racist.

        can’t be racist against white people. racism is a system of oppression that whites are in charge of. you’re really ignorant.

          Thats incorrect.Rascism is: prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism
          directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that
          one’s own race is superior. Also this photoshoot is not rascist.

       Fashion Gone Rogue, a place where a little fashion debate is not legal.

    Loving the styling, but not liking the blank expression on the model’s face. Ajak Deng’s done better work!

    I don’t get racist from this. What I get is plain ole’ ugly. The makeup and the really bad retouching on her face has detracted from from this girl’s great beauty. In certain shots, the wig literally looks like a cut and paste job. This shoot is an aesthetic nightmare. This Chanel collection doesn’t warrant a shoot (it really wasn’t that good) and the whole “let’s stick a black girl in a blond wig and frilly clothes because it’s working a contrast” thing is so lame.
