what’s the newest thing, what’s the hottest trends. Love it all. Fashion is a passion if mine and I’m still trying to figure out how to make this a J-O-B and be very successful. That being said I think it’s absolutely ridiculous about the fight and war going on with the new fashion editor at Essence that happens to be… white.
We have been hearing about this for days and I must say stop it! True there could have been a black fashion editor pulled in but I admire what editor, Angela Burt-Murray said;
“her creativity, her vision, the positive reader response to her work, and her
enthusiasm and respect for the audience and our brand," adding, "I thought she'd
make an excellent addition to our team. And I still do."
Lets face the fact, Time Warner owns Essence. We should be applauding that they have decided to try to work with the magazine and keep it on the newsstands rather than throw it away like so many other urban magazines. Remember Suede and Honey (now online?), Jewel is still standing but for how long? They couldn’t make it, simply because readership and subscriptions were down… in the black community.
This issue is the same as black editors and staff working at Marie Claire, Lucky and Vogue. How dare they? Oh right, they can do that over at a white publication because they deserve it.
