Let's Find Some Faux Obamas for Madison Avenue


The Black Snob is asking for our help.

She has written two posts about the ' hard time' that Madison Avenue seems to be having with finding adequate representation of The Obama Family:

Child Model Look-A-Likes For Malia and Sasha Hard to Find?

Hustlenomics: Will Obamas Be Boon For Black Models?

So, being PRO-Active, The Black Snob has decided to help those befuddled Madison Avenue Executives.

Solutions: Help Madison Avenue Find FauxBama Girls
Sunday, February 1, 2009 at 11:32AM

After writing two posts about the advertising/modeling industry suddenly scratching their heads and having their worlds turned upside down by clients wanting a more "ethnic" look in the kid campaigns due to First Daughter Fever, and reading unadulterated BULLSHIT like,

"(T)he First Daughters are tough subjects to match"


“It’s a very specific age and a very specific ethnicity, so there aren’t that many girls that would necessarily fit the bill,”I can no longer stand idle and say do nothing.

We at The Black Snob aren't just about complaining! We're here to help the clueless who seem to think black Americans (the kind with African, European and other mixed ancestry) are, you know, hard to find. Even if there are 40 million blacks in America (according to a 2006 US Census study) and almost all of us fit that make-up in some way, shape or form and their are millions of little girls, each cuter than the last.

So, if you know a cute little black/brown girl, working professionally as a model or is an undiscovered diamond in your family, school or neighborhood (with the parents' or guardian's permission), please submit her adorable picture to

The Black Snob's "Cute Black Girls Are Everywhere, You Idiots" campaign (mailto:, via email,

where we will happily put together a lovely post and release a press packet to the dunderheads at Wilhelmina to say, "Um ... looking for cute, little black girls? Ur doin' it wrong!"

Thank you! I look forward to coo, ooh and aaw over the undeniable cuteness of your offspring, siblings and future super models.

Deadline for submissions: February 8th!

So, help The Black Snob help the ignorant executives of Madison Avenue...

But, I thought Michelle Obama didn't want dolls made of her children - period?

This isn't for dolls. This is for modeling. You know, they're going to use models, and now they need models of little Black girls, and they don't know what to do.
