Racism In Hollyweird? NYLON Should Know… Zoe Saldana Is The First Brown Cover Girl In Seven Years

- By Bossip Staff

NYLON Magazine thinks they’re slick… They put Hollyweird’s current fave Zoe Saldana on the front of their upcoming issue and have the nerve to act like they’re not guilty of the same shizz she’s talking about in the interview. Pop the hood to see what we mean.

Zoe speaks on being rejected in Hollyweird:

“When they say ‘We want to go white,’ they have a very smooth way of saying it, and the recent one is the word traditional. [I’ve heard] ‘Oh, you know, you’re just not what we were looking for, your skin is a little darker.’ Compared to what?! My skin is just my skin. It’s dark if you compare it to someone who’s lighter.”

We hear ya Zoe… Even though you said pretty much the same thing in your last interview.

Meanwhile NYLON hasn’t had a brown face on a cover since Lil’ Kim was hot (sorta hot anyway…it was 2003). We also found it ironic that the caption they put to put under their token Dominicana reads: “Stunningly Smart” which kinda strikes you the same way as all those well meaning folks who say things like “Obama speaks so well.”
