Why is this important? Because otherwise friendly, decent white people are really the bedrock upon which passive racism maintains its grip on media mastheads & editorial departments. And when ppl look up to you as an example for an entire industry, this shit is just embarrassing

"prestigious magazines" are not created by God. they came into existence when people got together to start them. instead of complaining about existing magazines, start your own. instead of complaining about the status quo, change it. nothing so exciting as starting something new
