Photos of white editor Dasha Zhukova sitting on 'black woman chair' sparks outrage on Martin Luther King Jr day

Racist...New magazine Buro 247 has sparked outrage after publishing this photograph of a white editor sitting on a 'black woman' chair. Picture: Supplied Source: Supplied

A MAGAZINE has caused outrage after publishing a photo of a white editor perched on a "black woman" chair as the US remembered civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.

New magazine Buro 247 has been accused of racism after it published a photo of Garage magazine editor-in-chief and Russian socialite Dasha Zhukova sitting on the chair, made of an almost-naked black female mannequin.

In the controversial photos, Zhukova, the partner of Chelsea Football Club owner Roman Abramovich, is dressed in a crisp white shirt and jeans.

She is sitting in a dominant pose on top of the black model, who wears only gloves, stockings and a garter belt, with her breasts pushed up against her legs.

The image of the fully-dressed, in-charge white editor perched on a near-naked black woman, has sparked outrage and a slew of critical comments after it was posted online.

The image was even more shocking given that it was published on Martin Luther King Jr Day, a US public holiday in honour of the American civil rights leader.

Publicity stunt?


Yes, clearly diversity/racism is a one-way street.
