Today In History We Honor Bethann Hardison
'In the 1960s, Bethann Hardison worked as a garment industry salesgirl. In the 1970s, she was an international runway model and assistant to some of the most important designers of the decade. In 1984, Bethann founded her own agency and became responsible for scouting, launching and managing some of the most famous models of our time, notably Naomi Campbell, Veronica Webb and Tyson Beckford. In 1987, Bethann became an activist outright, founding the Black Girls Coalition with her close friend Iman. Bethann Hardison is a force to be reckoned with. Shedding light to the lack of diversity on the runways in recent years in her new documentary project, Invisible Beauty, Bethann Hardison additionally served as a contributing editor to the now infamous Vogue Italia, “black” issue.' via bethannhardisonfb

The reach with this one disneyfied ass tale. They, however, have no problem whitewashing different races and ethnicities and see our disdain as sensitive and “reverse racist.” Case in point: Exodus - God and Kings, the new British-American biblical movie set in Egypt, that has caused uproar and boycotts:

Lemme not go over the post limit. This is just a handful that scratch the surface. 

BTW, the Cinderella story came from China to Europe in the time of Marco Polo..
