Black Editor who hired White Fashion Editor Fired from ESSENCE Magazine

 width=The fashion industry is for being racist and even supermodel Naomi Campbell has stated the fact many times over. Therefore, with such a lack of opportunities for blacks in the industry it would appear strange that the single most successful black woman’s magazine would hire a white fashion editor.

The end result is that Angela Burt-Murray, the woman who hired the white fashion editor is out as editor-in-chief of , the Time Inc.-owned magazine for women. Murray spent five years at the helm.  She told staffers this past week in a meeting that she is relocating to with her family. She didn’t return a call for comment.  Sheryl Tucker, who took a buyout as an editor-at-large at Time Inc. in 2008, is being brought back to run the mag on an interim basis. According to sources, the company quietly began preparing for the move a few weeks ago but wanted to proceed delicately to avoid re-igniting a controversy that flared this summer when Burt-Murray appointed a white woman to the key position of fashion director.
