TYRA BANKS AND MODELS POSE AS OBAMA FAMILY
Supermodel turned talk show host Tyra Banks and three other models were cast as the Obama family in a Harper Bazaar Photo shoot.During the shoot, Tyra was brought to tears when talking about how presidential candidate Barack Obama inspires her:”I did a talk show, and we were testing racism with little kids. We showed them a picture of a black man in a suit and a picture of a white man in a suit. And we asked, ‘Which one can be president?’ These kids were all of different races — black, white, everything — and not one of them said that the black man could be president. Not one. So what gives me tears is if Barack Obama wins, kids are going to say that a black man can be president, too.I think it will give so many people — black, Latin, Asian, even white people that feel forgotten–it gives them hope. I did not think I would see it in my lifetime, and I’m only 34.”
BCK Says: The little girl models do not look at all like the Obama girls Malia and Sasha. The models are adorable nonetheless.
