And here’s the evidence that Vanity Fair is fully capable of putting a black Hollywood actor on their cover. We may as well applaud them for the few times they did the right thing. Djimon Hounsou made the cut in 1998.
Thandie Newton won the honor in 1999
And Chris Rock rocked it out in 2007.
Still… We’re waiting for the day when VF will choose more than two people of color for their Hollywood issue AND show them prominently displayed. Actually scratch the WAITING part. We’re demanding it.
