Nigerian supermodel Oluchi Onweagba has thrown the cat among the pigeons by speaking out against racism among magazine bosses.

The gorgeous model says some local magazines will not feature her on their covers because she is black.

She is not the first black model to level charges of racism at magazines.

The truth is that racism is synonymous with the beauty and fashion industries.

Even catwalk goddess Naomi Campbell has complained bitterly about discrimination.

It is disingenuous of local glamour magazines to claim they are untainted by racism.

It is also common for people who harbour racist tendencies to engage in all sorts of sophistry to mask their prejudice.
