Anna Wintour: In the face of racism, she admits Vogue magazine’s ‘mistakes’

I want to make it clear that I know that Vogue has not found enough ways to promote and make room for our black editors, writers, photographers, creators and other creatives. We also made mistakes, published images or articles that were hurtful and intolerant. We take full responsibility for this“, adds the magazine’s fearsome editor-in-chief. Vogue has long been criticized for its rare coverage of black and visible minority incidences. Worse, the release was suspected of leading singer Ariana Grande’s skin for an issue released in June 2019.

Being a black employee at Vogue can’t be easy, and you’re not good enough. I know that it is not enough to say that we will do better, but we will do it – and know that I appreciate your voices and your reactions for the future. I would like to hear your reaction and advice if you want to share it. I am proud of the content we have posted on our website over the last few days, but I also know that there is still a lot to do” concludes Anna Wintour.
