    just feel like there's a lot of talk with no action to back it up

    I know how eager people are to pull the race card so I'm trying hard to understand where the hm representative was coming from. It sounds as if they are trying to give a long-winded response and twitter took one portion and ran with it. I notice that the fourth portion is missing, it could've very well stated something like "this positive image that we seek is based on inclusion and diversity". Or the person could simply feel that the sitewhite race is superior.

    south african store uses only white models

    nothing racist going on there

    thats not the same place that had apartheid is it? [​IMG]  

    not to mention the idea that theres literally only one person who responds to tweets when they come up like this did [​IMG]  

    not to mention how did that "apology" address the original question?
