Vogue Italia presents: Vogue Black

Vogue Italia created a new website called Vogue Black.
Since the popularity of their "Black Issue" and the "Barbie Issue", the magazine decided it would be a good idea to have a whole website dedicated to Black models and trendsetters.
Honestly, I don't know how to feel about this. A part of me is happy while the other side remains confused. I feel happy, because finally the most powerful fashion magazine in the world has recognized the Black race in their magazine. The images you see in Vogue magazine are prodominantly "white" and now Vogue Italia is finally starting to show acknowledgement. It's nice that they're showing some of the great fashion occurrences. On the other hand, I feel confused because now it seems like were even more segregated than before. Its like the regular Vogue magazine and website is for White America and the one "Black Issue" of Vogue and the Vogue Black website is solely for Black America.
I wish  they could just publish an issue that equally showed different aspects of fashion between different cultures.
What do you think?
