Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Vanity Fair

with 2 comments

Vanity Fair is getting some negative feedback for lack of  diversity on its new cover. The Vanity Fair cover which is known for photographing rising female starlets for the year, fails to incorporate women of different races. Some of the women on the cover include Kristen Stewart, Amanda Seyfried and Emma Stone. Now i don’t  think Kristen Stewart’s acting skills are enough to land her on the cover when she is out shined by others such as Zoe Saldana in Avatar, but then again thats my opinion.

  1. I saw the cover on tv and thought the same thing to myself. Hollywood in general is incredibly racist as well as homophobic (how many openly gay actors do you know of?). Many of the preconcieved racial notions we have are formed through what we see in the media. From a young age, we are subliminally told that white is what is to be aspired too.

  2. i never really thought about that, but when i think about it- i can’t say i recall ever seeing someone ethnic on the cover of Vanity Fair. its almost like when people are selected for a job because of the color of their skin. rising stars aren’t choosen for the cover of this particular magazine for their skin color….
