KELLY WILLIAMS Posted about 1 year ago Cameron Russell: Looks aren't everything. Believe me, I'm a model. I agree that body image is an issue, and I do believe that people are not treated equally because of how they look, but I think she is talking about more than body image in this talk. I don't think the Black and Latino individuals that she talks about being stopped and frisked were because of body image, but because of race and gender. They did not let the good looking Black and Latino boys go without being stopped and frisked. Gender and racial oppression isn't from body image but rather from the stigmas and stereotypes associated with those people which has nothing to do with how they look. I am a woman in a field predominantly dominated by men and my struggle to prove I can do the job as well as the man I'm working next to has nothing to do with how I look, but rather with the stereotype that women are not as qualified as men to do this job. DO you really think that race and gender discrimination is the same thing as body image?
