Model Jourdan Dunn stands up against racism

  • London, Sep 24 (IANS) Model Jourdan Dunn has taken it upon herself to tell the truth about racism, which goes on the runway.

    Dunn is taking a stand against the fashion industry and wants to reveal the truth.

    "I want to talk about what goes on. A lot of people are scared to speak up. People think it's all glamorous and good and that all models get treated the same, but there is still a lot of bulls**t that happens. I speak up," Dunn told the Guardian newspaper's the Fashion magazine.

    The model feels that not being allowed to walk for a show, because of the skin colour, is wrong.

    "I wanted to make a point, but not a dig. Girls get cancelled last minute all the time, but at least it wasn't because of my skin tone. Which I often get in Paris," she said.

    A mother of a three-year-old son, Dunn feels that big shots in the fashion industry should try to make a change.

    "The people who control the industry, they say if you have a black face on a magazine cover it won't sell, but there's no real evidence for that."

    "It's lazy. You always hear, 'There aren't enough black models', which is bulls**t. It's all about these dead excuses," she said.
