The cover is simply lovely. Great casting, really great stories, I'm lovin it.

About the "ghetto" thing...I hate that everything has to be politically correct now. Seriously. Some jokes are considered offensive, we can't use the word "ghetto" to describe something either, when you don't like the black models that there are on the market, people call you racist...this whole thing just needs to stop.
It vreally sucks because these things are our opinions/terms/funny terms. Now everyone's offended by everything. People in general don't mean to insult when they use the word "ghetto", as long as I know of. People should take these things more easily and relax, not make a big fuss about everything.

Four black girls. They could have easily used four models of varying ethnicities, but they chose for black models. I don't necessarily consider it progress if it's still treated as such a novelty; putting four black girls on the cover of your magazine once a year feels forced. The showcase of this piece is their blackness. Are the pictures beautiful? Absolutley. They all look stunning; I don't even hate Chanel in this one, which is truly a feat. But the underlying message of this piece still focuses on color.

Call the cover "ghetto" all you want, but you shouldn't forget or be ignorant towards the larger social implications that the word actually has.

I think it's really disconcerting that people really think using four black girls on the cover of a pop culture magazine/fashion/etc magazine such as i-D (which, imo, has been miles ahead of a lot of other magazines largely developed for a white audience in terms of putting people of all ethnicities on their covers). is such a novelty. It makes me uneasy that some people think we should ignore the concept of race all together and pretend to be "colourblind," when infact in 2009 race and ideas pertaining to race are still relevant. And as KhaoticKharma stated in the post above "the showcase piece of this is their blackness," so what? Why should we ignore the fact that they are black. I don't think it serves any purpose to ignore race all together. If they did a cover with four models of different ethnicities I think we'd see the same sort of tokenism complaints that we are seeing now.

Anyway, I really love the cover and the early 90s feel it has. The colour scheme is also very refershing. I can't wait to get a copy.

I think that its awesome that i-D used four black models on the cover. It feels good when you look at a magazine and see someone who looks like you all glammed up on the cover! Especially since it's not something that happens all the time...

Korea is very close minded but they need to understand that a picture is just that, a picture.

But I don't get that at all - as I said on a previous page, if there's one magazine with a long tradition of using black models on the front a long time before the issue became fashionable, it's i-D. The only thing that's new about this cover is that it's a group shot of girls, when usually the cover is a single person or shared by a creative couple.

This is a magazine that's consistently presented black people as normal cover subjects, and in my view, I wouldn't rope it together with magazines which have made more belated attempts to open their pages to such talent. It's still an imperfect world, but I would give i-D more credit for its efforts, for what we've seen over the years and what we see today. Black models - a glance at their archive will show you astonishing covers with nearly every great name of the 90s, and we can't say we're being deprived of shots of the current stars either.

As much as I would like it to be, I don't believe it's possible for magazines to suddenly change and start using black models as if they were never under represented.

They have to make some statements like this. It's a way for them to communicate their idea, and then it will get picked up and echoed by other magazines until it's happening so regularly that it no longer becomes an explicit message and people accept it as normal.

It can seem irrelevant and tired for those of us who tend to be a little more constant in our opinions than the fashion magazines.

i bought this today and i'm really dissapointed with the tim walker ed...i haven't read the article accompanying it yet but it seems to be based around an overweight club girl they picked up on a bus...although i could be wrong. but the reason i'm dissapointed with it is because it just hasn't got that tim walker feel to it, it's quite boring.

I will concede that i-D has been much more diverse- even before it was cool to be diverse- than the majority of magazines out of the US or Europe. But I don't know, lately I've just felt like being black is the new "going green"...
