What’s Wrong With This Picture? Vanity Fair Doesn’t Care About Black People

You mean to tell us — in all of Hollywood, they couldn’t find one Black, Latina, Native-American, Asian, multi-racial actress on the rise worthy of this group??? SERIOUSLY??? Don’t get us wrong, Vanity Fair has traditionally kept it pretty milky when it comes to their Young Hollywood issue over the years, but we thought they were on the road to progress after they featured both Zoe Saldana and America Ferrara in their 2008 lineup. Pop the hood for photos from both issues.

Mind you, Zoe and America didn’t even make the front cover in 2008, they slid those two into the inset and gave Emily Blunt, Jessical Biel, Amy Adams and Anne Hathaway all the shine. Funny enough VF included Zoe Kravitz, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens in a profile on young up-and-coming actresses for last month’s issue, but it wasn’t a cover story! Will things ever change at Vanity Fair??? Should we stop buying these magazines until they diversify their covers (and not just by putting Tiger on front street)?
