Xev- I agree wholeheartedly. I'm tired of hearing people drop the word racism at the drop of a hat. CL did not go about selecting the 8 artists they featured to intentially exclude a portion of the Atlanta population. I find it hard to believe that in this day and age, and in our diverse city, that the racist card is still being tossed out there. Being latina, I would never take it upon myself to look at a magazine cover and write an article about the fact that there isn't a hispanic person featured on the cover. To say that CL should have included someone on their cover of a specific race JUST so that they are included, does a diservice to the magazine and the artists that were picked to be featured for their creativity and their craft.
