Iman says it's time to protest!
The New York Times reports only 6% of the models who walked the catwalk during New York Fashion Week this year were black, and the iconic supermodel thinks it's time to take action.
"It feels to me like the times need a real hard line drawn like in the Sixties, by saying if you don't use black models, then we boycott. If you engage the social media, trust me, it will hurt them in their pockets. If you take it out there, they will feel the uproar."
The 58-year-old adds:
"There is something terribly wrong. We have a President and a First Lady who are black. You would think things have changed, and then you realize that they have not. In fact, things have gone backwards."
Sad. But, he model mogul has a point!
