Actress Michelle Williams (not to be confused with the 5th member of Destiny’s Child) covered AnOther magazine, serving reservation realness. While the cover is in black and white, you can tell that Michelle’s porcelain skin is tinted red, giving her a more Native American look. The words “There’s no place like home” appear on the cover beside Michelle. Ok, are we to assume Michelle’s home is a reservation?

Williams’ latest role is Glinda the Good Witch in “Oz: The Great And Powerful,” so it’s not like the editorial is borrowing from her role for the look of the shoot. However, the film is based on books by the writer, L. Frank Baum, who was a White supremacist, demanding Native Americans be wiped out.

“The Whites, by law of conquest, by justice of civilization, are masters of the American continent, and the best safety of the frontier settlements will be secured by the total annihilation of the few remaining Indians. Why not annihilation? Their glory has fled, their spirit broken, their manhood effaced; better that they die than live the miserable wretches that they are.” – L. Frank Baum
