One-Color Magazine

Steve is right about this. There is no good excuse for a liberal magazine like The Nation, located in New York City, to have so few people of color on its editorial staff.

The way the Columbia Journalism School graduate was treated by Fitness magazine in the linked story is purely racist. It speaks to a mentality -- probably quite prevalent in the New York publishing world -- that non-whites simply lack the facility with the written word to be successful contributors in the publishing world.
