Once again, I have always said that Time Warner-Essence-CNN was destructive to the black community. Every week Essence had black male bashing articles and once Time Warner got hold of them-they rolled out all of these black propaganda specials, which has basically assassinated the character of black people in America. Well, now blacks at Essence have been bitten by the same dog that they once used to bite other blacks.
While I didn't like the constant social assassination done by Essence Magazine on black men, I never thought that Essence suffered from any type of Fashion Issues! From my knowledge, black women live fashion and trends. Blacks women do two things very well and that is Fashion and Business! I thought that a fashion editor, at Essence Magazine, was beyond safe for a black woman!
I still can't forget that we had that first CNN's Black in America led by an Essence Intro from New Orleans, putting out this ridiculous propaganda saying that black men were intimidating "little black children" because the children wanted to learn to read & black men wanted to stop them from doing it! It was a hot ass mess on CNN! Even TD Jakes had to laugh at that mess, when he was on the panel and some ebonic speaking woman said that line! But CNN-Essence were all to happy to air this across the air waves and pollute black minds! Essence has not been helpful by any stretch of the imagination! In fact, there is nothing about Essence that I like except seeing who is on the cover.
With that being said, lets address the issue of yet another black woman loosing a job to a white woman or someone of another race, even at a black magazine, which makes money off of black women!
Essence editor Angela Burt-
If one understand the sociology trends of the United States, the President sets the tone for the country. I strongly believe by Obama's marketing people, who trashed blacks during the campaign to appease white folks and then whites seeing Obama firing so many blacks, simply because Glenn Beck at Fox News wrote their name on that Harry "Make A Negro Disappear" Chalk Board, a dangerous precedent has been set for any black person hoping to maintain a job in media, government or corporate America. Obama fires black people all the time and replaces them with whites, so according to white people in corporate American, this type of thing is now o.k. to do.
Lets take Ken Salazar, the supposedly "self-made" Latino from Colorado, who is now heading MMS(Mineral Management Services). Salazar is "self made" if you consider being "self made" by making your money taking bribes from oil companies, in exchange for frivolous drilling permits. Under Ken Salazar, the MMS handed British Petro (BP) a permit signed by dead people, allowed non existent inspections of oil rigs and is a part of an entire host of Federal Crimes and unethical behavior but because he isn't a black woman, no one is calling for him to resign and Obama doesn't appear to be tripping him out of the door like he has done black members of his administration!
O.K. the dumbest woman in all of the land, has to be Janet Napolitano! Incompetent beyond belief! This woman heads up the joke known as Homeland Sec. due to white woman gender affirmative action! Now, she said that the B.P. Oil Gusher was an "over reaction" when the pubic expressed worry the first few weeks! She has called U.S. Troops returning home from a grueling War, the "real terrorist" yet no one is asking her to resign because she isn't a black woman! Nor is Obama tripping her out the door to his administration.
Now lets look at the Desirée Rogers case. She was the White House social secretary for Obama, & she was also fired unjustly by Obama after the Secret Service blamed her for not doing the Secret Service job at a White House Dinner! It was not Rogers' job duties to be the CIA and considering that two Secret Service people allowed in a white woman, because she had on a tight dress, Obama was wrong for removing the Black Social Sec. from her post and replacing her with "Betty Crocker."
(Julianna Smoot AKA Betty Crocker replaced Desiree Rogers after Obama followed the media's lead and lynched Rogers because the two white secret service men, failed to stop an uninvited guest, that was not on the White House Dinner List, at TWO different security check points!)
Now, do I have to spell out what Obama has set in motion? Because I simply can't evolve black people's minds to understand what everyone else can see.
Keep in mind that the largest group to have benefited from Affirmative Action, was not blacks but instead it has been white women! White Women and Immigrants of Color, have been the largest recipients of corporate advancement due to work done by blacks in America.
- There are no blacks working at Telemundo Networks
- There are no blacks at Si-T.V. for Latinos (English Language)
- There are no blacks at La Opinion
- There are no blacks at Latino M t.v.
- There are no blacks at 95.1 Latino Vibe
But yet we have latino executives at BET?
Blacks need to get out of the habit of saying "Blacks & Latinos" because the fact of the matter, they are in a way better position than blacks.
(Michaela Angela Davis is not happy about young black girls, who dream of a career in print fashion having no place to go because one simply doesn't see blacks at any publication dealing with hispanics or whites. Even though Vogue or Cosmo doesn't say they are white magazines, everyone knows that 99% of tv programming, news and media is by and for white Americans)
Essence is now hiring whites for jobs once held by black women. Keep in mind that there isn't one prominent black person, at any media, that caters to hispanics, asians or others but every time something caters to blacks, like BET, one sees a bunch of Whites and hispanics working there.
(Michaela Angela Davis talks to CNN Time Warner and of course their job is to defend Essence Time Warner but I tried to keep on M.A.G. Anderson Cooper sounds redundant and simply says the same tired mess about "if it were a black woman being hired and a white woman was fired, you wouldn't be saying reverse racism" Because ya know, white women have such a hard time getting jobs at magazines!...I guess.)
