Naomi Campbell on Racism in Fashion

 

“Are you essentially accusing the industry that you have done very well in of racism?” asked the white interviewer “really” surprised. Just because one model is top shot doesn’t justify or rationalize having a sprinkle of black models on the runway seasons after seasons. I am very excited with this campaign. I can only imagine how tough and frustrating it must be as a black model in Fashion.

Some people have argued that if we have more black top designers, this would help, we pray for this to happen so fast also but it is not happening yet and we do have black models and they do need the job besides I wouldn’t think it fair for a black top designer to use only black models that would be racist and that is exactly Naomi’s point. It might not even be obvious to the designers and casting crew but then as with everything subconsciously abnormal someone needs to call attention to it. Its not about the few models who have been able to get a breakthrough because some years, some designers are looking for a certain look for their show, it should be about balance, making sure that eash fashion season, everyone, black, white, Asian, red all get a chance. Well said Naomi and kudos to the Diversity team because already I see changes and increased participation of models of colors on spring 2014 runways.

I also wondered at how the interview went from diversity and the lack of it to all that personal talk first on the Charles Taylor incident and then that stupidest talk ever about positive anger and negative anger clearly alluding to Naomi’s anger issues,  he must think Naomi dumb to go with that flow. Of course I loved how home girl (permit me to famz) shut him down.

I have never lived outside this country so I am not familiar with racism. I have Blacks like me around me all the time but from watching this interview, I could glean a bit of the frustration Blacks must feel in their society. Now because of the press the Diversity in Fashion campaign is getting as a result of the personalities championing the cause, Channel 4 is interviewing Naomi Campbell and and the white interviewer starts with that opening question asterisked above. Even in the face of all that stark figures before him from last year runway shows – a whooping 82% white, 6% black and 12% Asian, he thinks it ridiculous and unfair to refer to the fashion industry as racist simply because Naomi a single black woman has excelled in same industry.

I can just imagine a black guy who gets harassed unnecessarily by the force just because of his skin color, or doesn’t get the leadership position he so clearly deserves ahead of some under-qualified white dude complain of racism and some white dude go “How can you say we are a racist country? We voted in Obama and he is black after all. Its not about those one off success stories, it should be about every other aspect of life, of living, of equality and color blindness.

Anyway what do you think? Do you think I am overreacting?
