The Jackie Robinson of Modeling

“I propose the “Beverly Johnson Rule” for Condé Nast, similar to the Rooney Rule in the NFL that mandates that a diverse set of candidates must be interviewed for any open coaching and front office position. The “Beverly Johnson Rule” would require at least two black professionals to be meaningfully interviewed for influential positions. This rule would be especially relevant to boards of directors, C-suite executives, top editorial positions and other influential roles. I also invite chief executives of companies in the fashion, beauty and media industries to adopt this rule.

“Whitney (Ruth Whitney, Editor-in-Chief – Glamour (1967 – 1998)) declared I was “the Jackie Robinson of modeling.” Forty-six years after my Vogue cover, I want to move from being an icon to an iconoclast and continue fighting the racism and exclusion that have been an ugly part of the beauty business for far too long.”

In Socialism, We’d Be Rich & Poorer, or Poor & Poorer

“Yes, in socialism the rich will be poorer – but the poor will also be poorer.
People will lose interest in really working hard and creating jobs.”

The Voluntary Exchange of Capitalism vs. The Forced Distribution of Socialism

“Socialism states that you owe me something simply because I exist.
Capitalism, by contrast, results in a sort of reality-forced altruism:
I may not want to help you, I may dislike you,
but if I don’t give you a product or service you want, I will starve.
Voluntary exchange is more moral than forced redistribution.”
