Feminist Diversity Cop Wants More “Colored Women” in Vanity Fair


Vanity Fair’s annual Hollywood issue hit newsstands this week, and the full color glossy has  taken a decidedly monochromatic approach to highlighting Tinseltown’s up-and-comers. Naturally, the preponderance of slender, white women gracing the Vanity Fair cover is a big deal in the feminist blogosphere.

If anyone would want to spin a new narrative and forget her past, it would be Bristol. Every story about her is marred by the taint of professional ne’er-do-well Levi. Who wouldn’t want to start fresh?
