Anna Wintour Acknowledges Systemic Racism at Vogue


Fashion editor Anna Wintour acknowledges systemic racism at Vogue Magazine in leaked email to staff...
 
The email, obtained by Page Six, reads,
“I want to start by acknowledging your feelings and expressing my empathy towards what so many of you are going through: sadness, hurt, and anger too. I want to say this especially to the Black members of our team — I can only imagine what these days have been like. But I also know that the hurt, and violence, and injustice we’re seeing and talking about have been around for a long time. Recognizing it and doing something about it is overdue.”
“I want to say plainly that I know Vogue has not found enough ways to elevate and give space to Black editors, writers, photographers, designers and other creators. We have made mistakes too, publishing images or stories that have been hurtful or intolerant. I take full responsibility for those mistakes."
“It can’t be easy to be a Black employee at Vogue, and there are too few of you. I know that it is not enough to say we will do better, but we will — and please know that I value your voices and responses as we move forward. I am listening and would like to hear your feedback and your advice if you would like to share either."
“I am proud of the content we have published on our site over these past few days but I also know that there is much more work to do. Please don’t hesitate to be in touch with me directly. I am arranging ways we can discuss these issues together candidly, but in the meantime, I welcome your thoughts or reactions.”
“This is a historic and heartbreaking moment for our country and it should be a time of listening, reflection, and humility for those of us in positions of privilege and authority. It should also be a time of action and commitments. On a corporate level, work is being done to support organizations in a real way. These actions will be announced as soon as possible.”

Scampering like rats and roaches when the lights come on. Fuck all this late fake wokeness. None of these Devils would have acknowledged shit if the murder of George Floyd hadn't become an international sensation that shone a spotlight on White America's continuous, blatant and systemic disregard towards Black people.

If this murder hadn't been caught on camera it would have been business as usual and the same old crap they do would still be ignored, despite countless years of calling out injustices. So Ana Wintour and all these other corporate scammers can take their disingenuous concerns and shove it up their pasty, narrow doodoo holes.

Black folks need to recognize when smoke is being blown up our asses. Some of these Devils will say anything and make a few token moves to get through the process. Then bam, it's back to the same old shit.

If it took 20, 40 and even 60 years to not give a fuck about something how does it only take one day and one incident to reverse that mindset? This email reeks of "tell the people what they want to hear" and I'm not buying it. But I'm sure the next move will be some catchy marketing campaign and a few obligatory in-house promotions with hopes that all will be forgiven. Bitch please.

Vogue never got any of my money, I could never relate to any of those drugged out emaciated white models. I never could never relate to the melanin recessive crew and their hypocrisy.

Wow Ana, so they new all this time they were fucked up and is just now admitting it. All her black friend celebrities she has. Kanye was so far up her ass and she knew Vogue didn't represent blacks. This is so fucked up.

Waiting for André Leon Talley to comment in,5 4 3 2..minutes. Will he get his job back?

She knows what she has was doing. She only invited rich black celebrity's to the Met Ball to raise money. She said black women didnt sale magazines on the cover. She had Oprah lose weight before she used her on the cover. Its time for her to move on also.

She is right saying she can only imagine it... We LIVE it every day!
I no longer work in the fashion industry and it's definitely hard for us. Changes need to be made and I'm hoping there will be some meaningful change. So many talented Black designers and stylists out here who deserve a chance.

She let Rihanna be on every cover all over the world. In fact Rihanna's talentless industry sex slave ass has gotten more covers that Naomi, Iman, and every other superb black supermodel you can think of. I think she just likes her black cover girls to be light brite and kissing her flat wrinkly ass. No black person should work for or try to be on Vogue anymore. All black female models and celebrities should boycott Vogue and create their own magazines.

I can't stand Naomi Campbell's sex trafficking ass but this is one time I wish she and Tyra Banks buried the hatchet, got together and created a black fashion empire and bankrupt Anna's ugly evil white ass. Add Iman and Alek Wek as well.

So the bitch knew all along that they weren't allowing Blacks at Vogue to elevate, and is saying in so many words that she would continue to know and not do anything to change her work environment if it wasn't for the George Floyd Psyop? Bitch, you were told to do this because all of you sick spirit cooking, child torturing, raping, killing, eating, adrenochrome drinking sickos want Biden in office to save y'alls necks. And y'all need Blacks to help put his pedophile in office. Not gonna happen!
