Iman Calls For A Boycott Against Designers Who Don't Use Black Models!

Iman calls for a boycott for designers who aren't hiring black models!

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.

Iman explains:

"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!

    It's so sad that this is still an issue. Designers claim that black models will not sell clothing…Ummm, maybe not to racist white women, but don't you think that black women would buy your product if you used more black models? It's just so nonsensical and absurd. These morons try to justify their racism and prejudice by claiming that it's just for business. Nonsense. Utter rubbish.

    No, what's sad is that designers cannot CHOOSE what race they WANT in THEIR clothing to model.
    What if there was a designer who only wanted asian models? Is that ok because the people aren't white?
    Grow up. Sick of these stupid minority races bitching about not seeing their people in everything. Whether it's clothes or disney princesses…you need to shut the fuck up.
