Race Matters… Vanity Fair Tucks Away Their Tokens In Yet Another Hollywood Issue Epic Fail!

Adepero Oduye Paula Patton

What is wrong with this picture? When are the wanksters at Vanity Fair going to learn??? Yeah yeah, we noticed that “at least” you included some black folks this year, but we’re not stupid. That cover folds up, tucking our black beauties Paula Patton and Adepero Oduye (who won raves from critics for her role in the indie film “Pariah”) out of sight and out of mind.

We still haven’t gotten over the sting of 2010, when blacks were shut out completely. The magazine was ripped apart when that happened, and last year they tried to rectify the situation by putting Anthony Mackie and Rashida Jones on the cover. But they two were tucked away, marginalized between the inside margins.

2011 Hollywood issue

You’d think they’d have learned by now BECAUSE they’ve been doing this for over 20 years — hiding the black folks on the far right panel.

Don’t believe us? Continue for lots of evidence…
