It’s been a while since I last updated my blog. I’ve been busy with MOCHA GIRLS album and my online TV show w/ Mae called “MOCHA BLOG LIVE” on Flippish.Com. But because I was so enraged with FHM’s March cover, I can’t help but give my two cents and share my opinion on this issue. First of all, I’m NOT mad nor angry at the cover girl, Bela Padilla. (As a matter of fact, I don’t know her. I’m not aware of her projects and TV shows.) She just followed the FHM people. She’s the victim here. No offense FHM creative team – blind or blind? Look at Bela (Mestiza/Fair-skinned) posing between three dark-skinned models with the caption “stepping out of the shadows”. The cover simply implies that women who are fair-skinned/Mestiza/white are superior than brown/dark-skinned/black women. To me, this is OFFENSIVE, DISCRIMINATING and RACIST. If there was nothing wrong about the cover, then it would have not attracted lots of negative attention from the international press.
