All but 3 of America’s 185 wealthiest families are white.
The series, which will be fully released in October, features 70 models who identify as either Asian, Native American, Hispanic, African, Middle Eastern, Black American and West Indian.
"I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."
"I wish to exhibit a splash of color onto the biblical pages of history with my creative embellishments. By doing so I hope to open the minds and eyes of the ignorant and create open conversations of how we can learn to see the world through colorful lenses. After all, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is intended for everyone."
For those who’d like to see the entire collection, “Icons Of The Bible” will on display from November 2014 to February 2015 in Atlanta, GA.
Natural hair Barbies are so cute!♥
I had to post this on tumblr, feminism should stand for equality not superiority
why are you blaming feminism for things that feminism is not responsible for? Feminists dont control the justice system, the draft, nor circumcision. However, I can show you sources of feminists fighting against these injustices.
"Feminism should stand for equality not superiority"
"I’m not blaming feminism"
So this is a general PSA to my followers and I realise that many of you will think I’m being overly PC or sensitive, but outside of the US, “spazz” is a horrifically ableist word (worse than “r*****”). It comes from the word “spastic” which refers to one of the symptoms of cerebal palsy. People with cerebal palsy were referred to as “spastics” and the word became a horrible slang way to compare a person’s movements or appearance with someone with cerebal palsy. It also became a catch-all for all disabled people, including those with learning disorders and mental illnesses.
It’s not cute and it’s not harmless.
So next time you’re clapping your hands and squawking about “like, omg, I’m such a spazz lolz!!!” maybe engage some grey matter and some empathy and, y’know, cut that shit out.
Also if you use it in Europe (particularly Scotland) you will have your arse handed to you for being a thoughtless dickface, just a heads-up.
