Make no mistake: There is a tremendous underrepresentation of blacks in fashion.
I love Kanye and I semi-understand what he is trying to say, BUT this article is on target. Kanye has so much power and influence, but he isn’t doing a thing to help other minority designers. What’s up with that?
“As an internationally known artist, Kanye West is in a position to really spark some change in this industry. However, in some ways he’s managed to maintain the status quo. It seems fashion is only racist when he is not given the praise and recognition he feels he deserves,or when it’s relevant to one of his songs.”
