"what's the big freakin deal, bitch?" - eric cartman


i think it's ridiculous and disappointing that putting a black man and a white woman together on the cover of a FASHION magazine has people up in arms. can we move on please? tagging it as something that "perpetuates a negative image of black athletes" is what contributes to the stereotype. why is that the first thing that comes to mind? you better check yo self before you wreck yo self. actually reading the contents summary on the cover reveals the not-so-hidden agenda: hot bodies, namely star athletes and top models. i think it's fair to say we have two a-list representatives of those categories with gisele bundchen and lebron james.

my educated analysis?
1. what an awkward body position, gisele. what would tyra say? *tsk tsk*
2. love the green dress, even with the air-brushing on her thighs. i do with they'd picked a color other than red for the text. ugly ugly. why not just black so the dress pops even more?
3. wow, his feet are huge.
4. i already know the secrets of the best bodies: time, genetics, personal trainer, personal chef. bam.

Why? Why? Why?

Her dress looks photoshopped on, for chrissakes.

Great post, Hannah.
