HuffPost: We Have Succeeded in ‘Goal’ to Have ‘Less Than 50% White Authors’


HuffPost Deputy Opinion Editor Chloe Angyal claimed the company had succeeded in its goal to have “less than 50% white authors,” on Wednesday.

“Our goals for this month were: less than 50% white authors (check!), Asian representation that matches or exceeds the US population (check!), more trans and non-binary authors (check, but I want to do better),” declared Angyal in a series of Twitter posts, Wednesday. “We also wanted to raise Latinx representation to match or exceed the US population. We didn’t achieve that goal, but we’re moving firmly in the right direction.”

“Making the improvements we made took work, no doubt about it,” she continued, adding, “We all tapped our networks and made moves to expand our collective rolodex.”

Though the posts received hundreds of likes, Angyal received over 3,000 replies, mostly consisting of users criticizing the company for focusing on race rather than content.

HuffPost, formerly known as the Huffington Post, has frequently published racially-charged, anti-white articles.

Last year, a HuffPost columnist argued that white people who stand for the national anthem are standing for white supremacy, while the company refused to remove an article that claimed the Islamic prophet Muhammad was poisoned by a Jew.

HuffPost were even tricked into publishing an article on their South African site which argued white men should have their voting rights taken away, only for it to be revealed that the article was written by a man as a hoax.

Following former Breitbart News Chairman Steve Bannon’s departure from the White House last year, HuffPost celebrated with a series of racially and religiously-charged headlines, including “Goy, Bye!” and “White Flight.”

In 2016, HuffPost published an article titled, “White People Should Be Banned from Doing Yoga,” and in the same year, HuffPost editors were mocked for posting a picture of their alleged diversity in the editorial department, only for users to point out that every editor in the picture was a white woman.
