I dig The Selby, which features "interesting people in creative spaces," as much as the next decor junkie. So what if it's a masturbatory celebration of hipster lifestyle? I can't count the number of times I've clicked in and spent way too much time fawning over some fantastic spaces that anyone with a soul would have a really good time in.
But has anyone else noticed that with two questionable exceptions, representations of Black people on The Selby are limited to the inanimate? And that the object d' blackness is always singled out and displayed like some sort of honor badge? Attention, hipsters: Black people actually exist. In fact, some are responsible for some of the music you listen to, much of the art you covet, and just about all the slang you bandy about in your incessant attempts at irony.
I'm not mad. It's Todd Selby's world. And in Todd Selby's world, Todd Selby should do what Todd Selby damn well pleases-- which may include shooting, of all the Black creatives in the world, Kanye. I'm just saying.
