16-year-old Caucasian model Ondria Hardin was recently photographed in Numéro magazine with the headline “African Queen”. Seems to us it would be much easier to hire a black model instead of deeply bronzing the young model.
This news comes to us on the heels of T: The NY Times Style magazine receiving huge backlash for its lack of black models. But seriously, when is enough, enough?
Don’t fashion magazines understand young aspiring Black models are hurt by this exclusion?
What do you think Vixens? How can we change this disheartening status quo?
