Kanye West’s clothing brand is releasing its 4th season today. The event which will be more intimate, compared to last year’s eccentric show at Madison Square Gardens will be streamed here at 3pm EST.
As always, the show has caused controversy so far due to Kanye’s casting-call announcing that he was looking for ‘multiracial women only’. Although this is a refreshing change in an industry that sees the need to use a large majority of white women for their shows, the news caused uproar within the black community as some women see it as Yeezy wanting to use “black women with white features”. The woman in the picture below also released a statement where she expressed her annoyance “This casting call for ‘Multiracial ONLY’ (not MULTIETHNIC which would still be fetishization) asserts that Black can only be beautiful when ‘MIXED’ with another RACE. There is a history of wanting to dilute the Blackness of one’s children because of the longstanding stigmatization of Blackness.”. You can read the whole statement here.
