Your Daily Dose of Irony


Magazines do not put Black models on covers because we don't sell issues.
In the face of rampant criticism and questions of racism, Italian Vogue does an
"All Black Issue" with 4 different covers of Black models and over 100 pages of editorials featuring black models.
The "Black Issue" hit US newsstands last week.
It sells record breaking numbers in a time when print media is rapidly waning.

I head into the newsstand today shortly after noon. The issue price has gone up a whole $10, from $15.99 to $25.99.

At 9:30pm this evening, I walk back to the same newsstand, the magazine is sold out again.

To this I say 2 things:
Black is the new Black
C.R.E.A.M .........Cash Rules Everything Around Me

"Dolla Dolla Bill y'all!"
