ZVALI SU JE ZEBRA I KRAVA, a ona je postala svetski supermodel

0

Ona je definitivno jedinstvena i drugačija od drugih. Ona je manekenka sa oboljenjem kože.

Šantel Braun Jang boluje od retke bolesti pigmentacije kože, vitiliga.

Kao devojčica bila je odbačena i trpela uvrede dece, koja su je zbog belih fleka na koži nazivala kravom i zebrom.

Kako to obično biva, život je preokrenuo stavri i njen nedostatak postao je njen najveći adut. Šantel je zbog svoje prirodne lepote, ali i jedinstvene različitosti postala poznati model.

Ona već uveliko nosi revije poznatih kreatora, a ove godine postala je i zaštitno lice dva velika modna brenda – Desigual i Diesel.

Veliki broj ljudi pruža joj podršku kopirajući izgled njene kože, ali je ovaj neobičan način da joj ukažu poštovanje naišao na kritike i uznemirio ljude koji to doživljavaju kao uvredu.

Šantel je na svom profilu objavila dugačak post u kome je branila fanove koji oponašaju njen izgled i objasnila da to ne treba doživljavati kao pokušaj diskriminacije i rasizma, već kao podršku i ljubav prema nečemu što je nekad bila njena najveća mana i nedostatak.

I agree & am knowledgeable to these things. & by all means I get it. But It's one thing to recreate my skin & wear a crown in a photo, & it's another to recreate my face & then wear a noose (which is not the case). There is a difference in love vs hate & it's easy to see. There's this fine line between stealing & showing appreciation or seeing that something's are being accepted by the world. There are things that have been taken without recognition (from Art, to culture, to language and beyond and from many races including our own), this is not one of them. One big comment I saw on my post was „u can't play both sides“ but it's that same mentality that keeps us stagnant, sitting in the same mind frame as our predecessors who dealt with things that are & can come to an end if we could Really see each other as equals, & not just claim we do. I proudly stand on the Gray Line that blurs black from white. I am happily a mix of many races and creeds! I am of African, Indian European and Asian decent and identify as a Proud Black Canadian Woman, and I Never forget the Canadian because that is the Gray. Being Canadian or American should remind you of this beautiful melting pot we are, and that the world is turning into. People are so prideful that they die & protest to be accepted, & when they are, they still find fault
