Claudia Schiffer As A Black Woman With An Afro

What is the point of this? Art? A piss take? Embracing black beauty? Her diversity as a model?

Am I outraged by it? No. Am I pissed off by it? Not really.

I see Claudia is also channelling her inner Asian side too. Between her and Karl Lagerfeld they'll probably come up with the art excuse reason for the purpose of these images.

I'm not going to jump up and scream racism. It's not like she's pictured with a fro on a plantation or anything. Without being biased and after looking at the pics, several times over she looks the best as a Black woman.

  1. I just came across this at the Huffington Post. In my opinion it's a hair style choice, albeit, the way hair grows out of black people's heads before they do whatever to it or not. Having seen Good Hair recently, we should be the last to scream any sort of 'isms' at this, if that is the stance some folks take. Many a black woman is walking about with all types of shop bought hair that other races would be right to take offence at or issue with. In the words of India Arie "I am not hair, I am not skin, I am a soul, that lives within"
