Black women are an afterthought

Black women are an afterthought, suggests an article in the Daily Mail, in relation to cosmetics and foundation creams.

Which left me thinking about how Second Life follows this ‘convention’, with black avatars, male and female, being routinely failed by skin suppliers.352C5D2700000578-3637424-image-m-18_1465719399084

Consider the number of stores offering group gifts or lucky chair items, and it’s my opinion that in Second Life, just as in cosmetic stores, ‘black women (and men) are an afterthought’. Perhaps it’s time for some SL stores to consider black avatars a bit more than they currently do.
