Bethann Hardison on racism in the fashion industry.

From About Face: Supermodels then and now

"the word aesthetic is borderline racist at this point"

Ok I see how this is controversial but also when you think about the other side these designers are artists and we can’t really infringe on their vision… We don’t have to support them and make a statement by not buying their clothes but I don’t think it’s right to change someone’s vision of something that they worked hard on and also I don’t think the models would be happy either because for any job it’s safe to assume that you want to be hired for your work ethic and how well you perform your job not because the designer was forced to have more diversity. Also what if that one black girl was supposed to be the finale look and the designer wanted her to be special and stand out from the rest of the models also what if the other 35 models weren’t white but Japanese or Chinese or Brazilian like there’s not enough information to assume this was a racial matter..

If the designers vision is a 35/1 white to black model ratio then the vision is inherently racist, and using a black girl as a finale seems kind of…. Strange to me. I think ideally an even ratio of color for a show is better than an almost entirely white with the spotlight on one black girl like I don’t see why it’s okay to single one black girl out if everyone else who walks down that cat walk is mostly white. And you cannot you absolutely cannot deny a lot of designers adhere to Eurocentric beauty standards like that cannot be disputed, so there is pretty obvious evidence that this is a racial matter, and having one black girl in the show doesn’t automatically absolve the designer of that regardless of their vision and aesthetic, it’s not about their vision or their aesthetic it’s about representation because I’m sure that’s more important in the grander scheme of things no?

But we don’t know that the 35 other girls are white there’s nothing that tells us this we just know one of them is black. Like we don’t have the full story here

It’s an example you dick why is this even up for debate like didn’t it click when the designer called for a single black girl probably just to save his ass could well be a racist designer? This whole interview wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t a racial matter like okay I admit I wasn’t at this particular show and I don’t pay much attention to the fashion world but if there’s one thing that’s blatantly obvious it’s that it’s a racist industry so I don’t see why you have trouble believing that what that she’s saying is wholly credible. White models still far outnumber models of color and that’s the truth.

Preferring to date a race isn’t racist! It’s like preferring a certain hair color or height By

racists

Let me break this down:

- Race is a social construct invented by Western Europeans to justify chattel slavery. Preferences aren’t biological or something you are born with, because race didn’t even exist until about 500 years ago.


-  Among PoC, there is no race/ethnic group/country where all the people have anything in common besides being from a certain part of the world. Among PoC, there is no race where every member has the same skin color, hair color, hair type, eye color, language, clothing, culture, etc. 

- The only race whose members all have something in common is white- all white people have to have light skin in order to be white. This rule was created by white people themselves, and is intentionally exclusive.

- Don’t even pretend that you don’t know there is a racial hierarchy in beauty. Everyone knows that in Western culture white women are seen as the most desirable, black women are seen as the least desirable, and everyone else is in the middle. Funny how these “innate” and “random” preferences seem to line up perfectly with white beauty standards/white supremacist ideals.


- No more false equivalencies. PoC not wanting to date white people is not the same as the reverse. PoC almost never believe that white people are unattractive/ugly, they just find it too difficult to meet a white person who is actively unlearning and working to dismantle white supremacy. 

- Stop trying to defend yourself. If you have racial or ethnic preferences, whether they are positive or negative, you are the problem, stop blaming it on everyone else. You have to acknowledge and unlearn whatever stereotype you’ve absorbed. 

Like a previous post I made, this post is also not a place to try to debate whether racial preferences are bad or not. I’ve made my statement based on pretty obvious facts about Western culture and white supremacy. If you don’t agree, move on.
However, feel free to share your experiences with this (either involving you or someone else).

“I was born with glass bones and paper skin. Every morning I break my legs, and every afternoon I break my arms. At night, I lie awake in agony until my heart attacks put me to sleep.”

this quote reads like an excerpt from an 18th century novel and it’s from fucking spongebob
