Vanity Fair's Racist Young Hollywood Photoshoot
The next time you take a group photo, make sure you have a token black guy, or risk being called a racist. That’s what’s happening to the folks at Vanity Fair who had famed photographer Annie Leibovitz do a photoshoot with a group of up and coming young starlets, all of whom happened to be Caucasian.
This is of course, unacceptable, particularly during black history month. Most magazines have better sense. You won’t see any white people on the cover of Ebony Magazine (unless of course they’re covering Michael Jackson), they know what’s up. But not Vanity Fair. They’re out of touch and in their racist craze they took Abbie Cornish, Rebecca Hall, Anna Kendrick, Carey Mulligan, Amanda Seyfried, Kristen Stewart, Emma Stone, Mia Wasikoska, and Evan Rachel Wood and put them on the same page together. They should have known that if you’re going to have that many white women in a room they’d better be lesbians. From now on, hopefully Vanity Fair will have the sense to take their cues from “O” Magazine and just put Oprah on the cover.
This isn’t Vanity Fair’s first racist photoshoot either. The seem to take pictures of a bunch of white women quite often and only occasionally do they remember to bring in someone with a tan. But now, with Barack Obama in the white house, finally we have the means to stop it.
It hasn’t always been this way at Vanity Fair. They used to have their priorities straight. In fact back in 2001 they hired Annie Leibowitz for a far more noble task when she photographed a group of models, and white women weren’t invited. Get a look at what Vanity Fair was like before the racism right here.
But these days Vanity Fair is more racist than ever. Here’s a look at their latest clan rally cover. See more racist photos from the shoot over there.
