Some Latina – or should I say ‘Latinx’ – activists are claiming that a recent photoshoot featuring Rihanna is racist…because of her eyebrows. In the shoot, Rihanna is wearing pencilled eyebrows. They’re super thin, and apparently that’s racist.
The thing is, this isn’t a Latina thing. It’s old school. Europeans have been wearing eyebrows like this throughout multiple time periods over the last hundred years – or more!
