Iconic model #NaomiCampbell, the timeless beauty and slayer of fashions, recently opened up about racism in the fashion industry

During a candid sit-down, Naomi Campell revealed instances of being stereotyped because of her race.

Naomi Campbell’s career has spanned more than 30 years after being discovered by a model scout in London’s Covent Garden. She’s graced the covers of more than 500 publications and has landed campaigns with Burbeery, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Prada, just to name a few. Although Campbell took the fashion industry by storm, it was not without hurdles to jump and hills to climb.
The London native of Afro-Jamaican descent admitted she refused to wear clothing that was “stereotypical” of her heritage and refused jobs that paid her less than her white counterparts.
“There were a couple of times back in the day in Europe when I had to say: No, I’m not going to wear this outfit because it was very stereotypical. I’m not going to go on the runway looking like a Rastafarian.”
Naomi Campbell added that she missed out on magazine covers because of her “skin color” and was labeled “difficult” when she pointed out on-the-job discrimination. When asked if she has any regrets looking back on her career, she says it wa

Majority of negros on America ignore racism of it benefits them, even in the place of work they act like it does not exist to keep a job, but as soon as it happened to them they lose that little job they want cry wolf, or when they zee white people involve they want to get involve, i do noy entertain nonsense, thats like a black cop who wants to write a book about how the police dept is racist after he retired, unless you retarded why would you want to support that?
