I get the feeling that the big magazines want covers featuring black artists to look bad so they don't sell too much and they won't have to do them for some time, like Jennifer Hudsons Vogue cover.

And now that I know that Bono (as a partner in a private equity group) owns an interest in Forbes Mag...well it just makes me go

Thanks for posting emilymarie

Maybe the also including celebs are also in the cover? So that would leave:
Muhammad Ali, Bono, George W Bush, Don Cheadle, Bill and Melinda Gates, Djimon Housnou, Madonna, Brad Pitt, Queen Rania of Jordan, Barack Obama, Condoleeza Rice, Chris Rock and Oprah Winfrey.
There are some that i can't really see.

I am convinced that Annie does not know how to flatter black people's physical characteristics in pictures. After Jennifer Hudson's Vogue cover, they should have got Micheal Thompson or Craig Mcdean to shoot these. Even better, an african american photographer.
