I’ve just seen the new batch of SL Marketplace images to feed the mass consumerism on the former Xstreet website. I can’t help but wonder why they are always depicting white avatars? Can we have a little color to our rainbow of perpetual purchasing?
I have always, and will always be a big fan of seeing beautiful strong women portrayed in Second Life advertising and marketing. I especially love seeing a true portrayals of women of color. Asian, African, Latin, ANYTHING and EVERYTHING! It’s all so good and so wonderful!
I mean, really Linden Lab? With the number of beautiful ethnic skins out there, you should be ashamed of yourself! You can do better.
Plus, there are so many great bloggers out there that maintain their racial identity. Why not spread the joy a little and bring a rainbow to the holiday season? Add some sophistication to the Linden Lab repertoire and ask some ‘too cool for school‘ bloggers to open up the door. Let me know if you need a list of image makers. I will hook you up with some sweet sweet peeps who have got amazing skills.
I hope you hear this message, Linden Lab. Let’s get with the program.
PS. This is in by NO WAY a complaint regarding the photography produced thus far. I am merely putting in a formal request for some diversity. Let’s call it my early “Dear Santa” letter.
