VIDEO: Looks aren't everything. Believe me, I'm a model.

Model Cameron Russell echoes the wisdom of Jesus Christ and MLK in the following TED Talk speech.

Jesus told his followers, "Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment." (John 7:24 ESV)

Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

Cameron tells the story of a New York University student counting all the runway models in 2007 and determining that "less than 4 percent were non-white."

Skin color still determines the job opportunities available for some people.
