Well, someone’s got to say it. In case you haven’t been following the latest distraction (do people really care about shit like this?) of Miley Cyrus, the “topless” photo and Annie Leibovitz, Vanity Fair has decided to showcase the talented photographer’s covers over the years. What is striking about looking at them all in a long line, as ONTD has done, is how few people of color are on them. VF wants to sell the magazines and traditionally, only white folk sell magazine covers. Still, it is striking, is it not? The very first one, or last one chronologically, is the most ethnically diverse. They do have the token here or there – it’s just a general observation that though we’ve come a long way, in many ways, we’ve not come far enough.
