This is one of the most insulting things that I have every seen, it makes me so mad I actually want to cry. I can’t believe magazines think that they can just dipped a woman in brown paint, give her clothes from my culture to put on and have the audacity to call her an “African Queen”. Growing up I heard so may jokes about Africans and saw the negative stereotypes portrayed by the media that tried to make me feel bad about where I come from. Yet Ive noticed when fashion magazine want to do spreads portraying poise and exoticness they often turn to Africa ( proving time and again that Africa is more than the negative images you see in the media) but this time, to try and take parts of my beautiful culture and have a white women play the role just proves that beauty cannot be seen in our countries/cultures unless it is represented by White people.
Stop white people once and for all
"classy" blackface is still offensive and harmful blackface
Also… my first TV crush. Probably first crush ever. I was lucky to meet her in person at conventions.
I just want to say that this is why minority representation in the media matters. Mae Jemison was inspired to become an astronaut after watching Nichelle Nichols as Uhura on Star Trek.
Media is NEVER “just” media.
She also appeared in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation that LeVar Burton directed, and Nichelle Nichols visited her on set. :)
I think the only way it’s possible for someone to not understand the importance of representation for your gender, race, sexual orientation or whatever it is - is if you’ve always had it. It never occurred to me growing up how privileged I was as a white male. I saw white males in every aspect of the media. I just never thought about it. I didn’t *feel* powerful or privileged. But it’s about the absence of a negative. I didn’t have to live in a world of TV, movies and comic books that were subtly conveying the message “This isn’t intended for YOU.”
THAT is why representation is so important. We need to send a better message. And for anyone who now has the privilege to create stories for an audience it’s a RESPONSIBILITY.
