@fredo777: Latinos can be white, hence that confusing questionnaire box “White, not of Hispanic/Latino descent”.
Thank goodness for white Latinos though. They just not-white-enough to allow gay companies to pretend they’re “diverse” while not really challenging anything at all.
@Jackhoffsky: Man, I love the lengths people will go to to defend segregation. Now it’s nonwhite models’ own fault Andrew Christian won’t hire them (for campaigns). That’s rich. How exactly does a nonwhite model go about reprsenting or not representing his ethnicity over their sexual orientation? Newsflash: the only people concerned about the ethnicity of models is Andrew Christian who clearly goes to great lengths to include only models who look white in his campaigns.
So maybe instead of making up complete hogwash about how nonwhite models are allegedly responsible for not being hired by Andrew Christian, maybe you should stop trying to defend bigotry by ignoring the obvious. There’s no shortage of out, goodlooking models across the ethnic spectrum in West Hollywoid where Andrew Christian is based. Nice try though.
If you don’t think segregation and the continued devaluation and marginalization of nonwhites in gay culture is an issue, then it is you who has the big issues. But of course we both know it is an issue: if it weren’t you wouldn’t be so bent on defending at all costs Andrew Christian’s exclusionary racial hiring. You would just like to convince the rest of us to ignore the obvious. That’s not going to happen.
The people who’ve made this an issue are those like you, who continue to promote gay Jim Crow with your apathy. It’s as silly as suggesting that unwritten rules which once excluded gay actors from film riles was a non-issue. But we know that was an issue for people like you — because white gays were affected. When nonwhite gays are relegated to the margins — well everybody should just shut up and accept it.
If the gay community would stop discrimating, I would stop posting about it. But as long as there are people like you to defend, excuse, and enable segregation, I will continue to point out that bigotry is unacceptable.
You can bury your head and the sand and pretend that the reason all AC models look alike had nothing to do with skin color and that nonwhite models are simply unavailable for use all you want. I’m not that silly. And it takes a healthy dose of delusion and chutzpah to chastise me for only seeing skin color while defending Aryan Youth Underwear Company. Comical to the point of tragedy.
@fredo777: Thank you for making sense and for laughing at the audacity. Yeah, Andrew Christian only hires white looking models not because he only sees skin color but because that’s all that’s available and because the rest of us dare to point out that he only hires white looking models, which means that we — unlike him — only see skin color.
Bigot logic never ceases to amaze.
@Jackhoffsky: Nice try, but point out that a company is discriminatory is not discrimination anymore that pointing out that the military’s ban on gay soldiers was discriminatory. Moreover, the notion that one should shut up an institution’s discriminatory policies unless they are an active participant in that institution is utter nonsense: should only soldiers have been able to criticize the military’s ban on gays? Should only Russians be concerned about gay rights violations in Russia? In the 1950s, should only people who rode the bus in Birmingham or went to school in Arkansas complained about segregation? Of course not. You don’t have to get the clap to know you don’t want it.
It is not surprising that a person who downplays and makes excuses for bigotry and segregation suggests that people should only “care” about injustice when it affects them personally. This, of course, is the difference between changemakers and people who stand idly by an enable injustice with their silence and apathy. The suggestion that “sales” are a legit excuse for discrmination didn’t work for whites only restuarants in the 1950s and it shouldn’t work for “whites only” gay underwear companies in 2013. It’s amazing that anyone would advance this long discredited Jim Crow argument.
The fact that simply pointing out that Andrew Christian’s might be discriminatory has spurred so many furious defenses from you proves that calling attention to this is effective as a visibility tactic. You may not notice skin color, but it quite obvious that Andrew Christian does when choosing how to displaying his product, and I *will* continue to fault gays who continue to display the product of gay culture as all white, all the time as happens constantly in gay advertising, porn, nightlife, and entertainment.
