A Huffington Post assistant editor has gained massive backlash for praising her textbook prejudiced publication goals.
Chloe Angyal tweeted, “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).”
Something tells us that Angyal, as an ‘over-represented’ white person, won’t be handing in her resignation any time soon.
The reaction on Twitter was swift and brutal, with over 3,000 angry replies back to the initial tweet.

It’s scary when evil people think they are the good guys. Your are the divider here

Judge me not on the color of my skin, but the content of my characters.

Angyal hilariously ignored the mass outcry against her “positive” racial discrimination goals, and went on to tweet that “making the improvements we made took work.”
She also tweeted, “I check out numbers at the end of every week, because it’s easy to lose track or imagine you’re doing better than you really are, and the numbers don’t lie.”

Yes Chloe, and neither does that Twitter ratio.
