To each his own. I as a black woman found it insensitive. It's awesome that you were able to pick it up easily, so happy for you.

Note: Zero sarcasms in this one.

More on this from Jezebel:

The Truth About Using a White Girl in the 'African Queen' Fashion Shoot
To Trenell, MizKerri and geeky:
I pray none of you ever has to live in a communist state.

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.
It seems like a similar thing is going on with the latest Versace ads. If you Google "Kate Moss Versace," current images are stuff like this:

Google Image Result for http://fashiongonerogue.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/VersaceSS4.jpg

I'd be interested in hearing opinions about this. Obviously her skin is being made much darker using photoshop (or something similar). Is this equivalent to the African Queen debacle? (I myself have ambiguous feelings about both.)
Medium/coarse, low porosity, dense, mix of 3s

I agree with Spiderlashes. This isn't the same issue. I don't think she looks like she's in blackface; she just looks tanned. Plus, they actually did use a black model: if you click on the other photos in the link, Joan Smalls is also featured, along with Daria Werbowy. Unlike Kate Moss, they weren't photoshopped beyond recognition.
