Allers - pissing me off.


Another short post, people - Just need to vent this:

The Norwegian magazine Allers.no refuses to post females with dark skin on the cover, or in any ads inside the mag. Claiming that it would cause their readers to get offended. Claiming it would not fit their "traditional image".

To those of you who read Norwegian:
http://www.nrk.no/nyheter/kultur/1.6930007

"Dette er et blad som har vært lest gjennom tre generasjoner nordmenn og regnes som et av de norskeste bladene i sitt genre. Majoriteten av norske kvinner er ganske lyse i huden og blonde."

I can't even begin to state how disgusting this is.
It's been 30 years since the first immigrants came to Norway. Not to mention all the children who are adopted, or people with multiple ethnicity.
Norway is no longer "white"
And anyone claiming this, or trying to maintain such discriminating politics, is contributing to the growing racism in Norway.

I wrote an angry email, telling them I will point my finger at them any way possible.
And I am not the only one.

You can write them and tell them what you think here: redaksjonen@allers.no

Allers: A big, fat fuck you! Wake the fuck up!
