Black People Are Not Your Travel Photo Props
« on: February 08, 2019, 03:23:41 PM »

Everyone doesn’t have an eye for photography. It takes creativity, time and the ability to be bold. In today’s society, sometimes you need to be careful with just how bold you should be.

One photographer is feeling the heat after he thought it was a great idea to capture a white woman dressed in beautiful dresses in the middle of a village in Cameroon. In the photos, Awamu Moja, the photographer from Luxembourg, posed a model standing among residents of the African country, posing in different outfits, one being a wedding dress. In two of the pictures, she is even holding a child for some reason, surrounded by Baka people, who are hunter-gathers.

Makes me think of that scene in 'Mahogany' where Sean is photographing models amongs the poor folks in the ghetto. Brian asks Tracey 'how much do the models make?' Tracey replies '$75 an hour'  and an irritated Brian asks 'how much are these people getting paid?' and TRacey looks at him annoyed as hell "thatsnot the point!!!"   :blush:

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support.

The pandemic has financial consequences, especially for Black-owned businesses. Ad revenue is shrinking so we are asking you directly for your financial support. You can use the Cash App and contribute to $onnidan or process your donation through Square
