Vanity Fair Magazine thinks Hollywood’s future is ALL-WHITE

The new IT-GIRLs?


White Girls

If you’re part of the white privilege world, you might not notice something strange about this photo, the cover of Vanity Fair extolling HOLLYWOOD! 2010.

They’re all white!  And SUPER SKINNY.  Utterly lacking in diversity.  They do not represent Hollywood’s future.  But Vanity Fair thinks they do!

Vanity Fair writer Evgenia Peretz calls out the young cover stars by their best attributes: “downy-soft cheeks,” “button nose,” “patrician looks and celebrated pedigree,” “dewy, wide-eyed loveliness,” “Ivory-soap-girl” features.

Hmmm, patrician looks? That’s code for ‘white’.  ‘Button nose’? That’s what most plastic surgeries are trying to create, also code for ‘white’.  ‘Ivory-soap’?  Its a white bar of soap.

Totally lacking creativity, Vanity Fair has missed out on these lovely young women:

Zoe Saldana, from both blockbusters AVATAR and STAR TREK.

and they forgot Gabourey Sidibe from PRECIOUS,

and they forgot Freida Pinto from SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE
