Real Talk From Naomi Cambell to Fashion Industry

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Naomi Campbell got downright cheeky with the fashion industry in response to what she sees as blatant racism, and a preference for blonde, blue-eyed wheffas, as opposed to certified chocolate bangers like herself:

“You know, the American president may be black, but as a black woman, I am still an exception in this business. I always have to work harder to be treated equally,” she said in a Glamour interview appearing on Monday (local time) in Germany.

She added: “In the past, there were more opportunities for black models but the trend towards blonde women has again become extreme. In magazines, on the catwalk, I see blonde, blue-eyed models everywhere.”

In 2007, London-born Campbell, along with fellow models Liya Kebede and Tyson Beckford, launched a campaign against what they said was discrimination in the fashion world.

How do you all feel about the fashion industry’s perceived racist tactics and more importantly, what can be done to curtail them?
