Subject:Ashro?

So I seem to have gotten myself on the mailing list for a catalog called Ashro. I'd never heard of them, but in flipping through it turns out to be a clothing catalog for African American women. It took me a while to figure that out, though, because it seems to be a catalog for the palest possible skin. Check it out.

I honestly don't know how many of them are the same model, and yes I cherry-picked for the worst examples, but the average was disturbingly light. Check out the lingerie page and see if you could possibly guess the race of the models.





And dear god, this is an abomination:

In some mixed up people of color cultures, they still view lighter is better. My husbands mother did that to us. OMG you need to stay out of the sun, you are too dark!!! Then looks to me, well at least you will have lighter children. I was shocked and appalled.

That is why Oprah's story of being told, the darker the berry the sweeter the juice came from. Some people need to be reminded being dark isn't a bad thing. It is just variety in life.

Scary bra though yeah?

Nah, the scary bit is the gluteus maximus extender next to the bra.

I think you would look particularly demure in that green dress.

Clashing is not demure.

The paleness squicks me :-(

The turquise bobble outfit looks like an admirable self-mocking domme-ly domme costume for kink events to me, but I'm an Aussie Ratbag.
