Garage Magazine Editor-In-Chief Dasha Zhukova Sits On A ‘Black Woman’ Chair In Shocking Editorial (UPDATE)

black chair womanClaire Sulmers, the editor of FashionBombDaily.com, alerted us to the unfortunate feature and calls the image an example of “white dominance and superiority, articulated in a seemingly serene yet overtly degrading way.”

We couldn’t agree more. Although the chair also comes in “white woman,” we can’t help but be filled with anger and frustration over the onslaught of negative imagery, constant disregard and unabashed bigotry that continues to plague the fashion industry. From Bethann Hardison’s crusade to end racism on the runway to our attempt to educate society over and over and over again about the nonsense that is Blackface — the stories of racially insensitive absurdity are never ending.

    overwhelmed .. Any tips? Cheers!

      Definitely a free option. If you can find a template that you like they’re extremely customizable. Unless you plan on monetizing your site I’d go with the free option.
