Naomi Campbell recently spoke out on racism in the modeling and fashion business while visiting Kenya:
“Black models are being sidelined by the major modelling agencies,” she told local journalists at a press conference in the beach resort of Malindi, Kenya, where she is on holiday. “It is a pity that people don’t appreciate black beauty”. She added: “I even get a raw deal from my own country. For example, I hardly come on the front pages of London’s Vogue magazine.
“Only white models, some of whom are not as prominent as I am, are put on the front pages”.
“I don’t want to quit modeling until I find that black models get equal prominence and recognition by the world media and information instruments” she added.
A lot of our celebrities speak out when the money is already made and their career is in decline. Here is a perfect example. Some think it’s less risky that way and almost as risky as a white assistant working for her with a Blackberry a few feet away.
