Your post said people are, you didn't say someone is. It made it sound like the majority were demanding for Scarlet (a white actress) to be on the cover instead of paintings of black women by black talent which changes the narrative. What am trying to tell you is many of us hate it because it just doesn't look nice, nothing deep. Lets stop pretending that Conde Nast is a struggling small business that doesn't have the resources to create good content simply because there us a crisis. Many of the clothes and accessories featured in the publication can buy PPE an for an entire hospital so that argument simply doesn't cut it. They have Alek Wek and Adut in the country side meaning they can get anyone anywhere they want. If having an opinion on art is considered tone deaf then why are we even here? We should all go to Instagram and twitter and pretend that we like everything so long as our favourite celebrity is featured. You also said "As for the rest of your comment, American Vogue doesn't do models on the cover. Tyler Mitchell's April 2020 cover was the first in years without a celebrity, unless Gisele and Kendall can still be consider models of course . Until the magazine changes the reasoning behind the selection of the cover subjects, getting all riled up about not seeing black models on the cover feels a bit disingenuous. This pertains to a larger editorial approach that the magazine took years ago, to go all in and promote celebrity culture for the sake of supporting sales and advertising revenues. "Would I like to see models on the cover of Vogue ? Sure, I'd like to see models, celebrities, politicians, whatever is relevant and important to push forward culture and ideas that enrich and inform people's lives. Do I think this particular society would respond to that? If they can put a painting of an unknown person on the cover am sure group shot of some of the most successful black models can have just as much punch hell it could even be a painting just one that's better than the one featured. Also September 2011 and 2014 had models on the cover. The problem with making wokeness boring is that people will lose interest in the cause and forget it pretty fast. Creatives have a job to use their creativity to bring about social change. One would think that they learnt from the Vogue cover challenge which showed them just how diverse black talent is globally. There are all sorts of black creatives with very diverse aesthetics just that the industry is not making that much effort to find them. That said, we both have every right to appreciate the cover in our own ways if you like it well and good if I don't also well and good, that's the beauty of art.
