Model Jourdan Dunn stands up against racism
London: 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.
