Stacia and I disagree on the hullabaloo surrounding the cover for this month’s cover of Vogue.
She gets the King Kong undertones and said it’s not a battle she cares to get all up in arms about; I think the cover and the fallout encapsulates the kind of thoughtlessness about racial imagery that are endemic to so many media outlets (someone in an editorial board meeting could have assumed that this would get under people’s skin, even if they didn’t personally didn’t see the big deal).
What say you?
