Why are the Williams sisters so light-skinned in this commercial?


\

This isn't my imagination, right? The top image is from a current Apple iPhone commercial, and the bottom one is from this past July when the Williams sisters won their fifth Wimbledon doubles championship. Why are they bleached out in this commercial?

Looks like Apple, even with its history of technological innovation, still uses a very old-fashioned way of determining which black folks can appear in their commercials:

Who knows? Maybe there's an app for that.

This whole racism thing just won't go away with these two! Boy oh boy.
