Did anyone catch the post about Vanity Fair on Yahoo yesterday?
They claim this is the new Hollywood....umm there are a few inconsistencies here people. Maybe this is the new Hollywood in their eyes, but we are really and definitely missing some people or should I say some color in this picture.
I guess I don't understand how they can be so blatant about the subject, I mean really? I know they say "their" definition of Hollywood and the "A" list isn't our definition of Hollywood or the "A" list. However, Vanity Fair knows good and well they are highly regarded, and has an influence as far as media is concerned.
Just read what they actually printed below:
The Cupid’s-bow lips, the downy-soft cheeks, the button nose: 27-year-old Abbie Cornish has those Ivory-soap-girl features we’re so familiar with, and yet hers is a face it’s hard to stop staring at—testament to the intelligence, vulnerability, and sensuality she brings to her characters.They are clearly describing what they find to be "Hollywood," I hardly doubt they would place a description of let's say, Gabourey Sidibe the star in the movie "Precious." Nor, will they spotlight Amber Riley of the television hit, Glee.
I am merely pointing out that the racial divide is still as big and wide as ever. With bull happening like this we are still in for a fight in Hollywood. Will Hollywood ever accept the wonderful talent of our brothers and sisters; or will they continue to smear the line and dare us to cross it? What should we do about it (if anything at all?).
I'm just saying, we have to fight for our rights, and our place everywhere. We cannot allow them to dictate the new Hollywood or anything for that matter!
Support our Actors and Actresses, our singers, and rappers (gasp), we have to stick together and uplift rather than tear down.
Stay Blessed & Happy Locing!
