    This magazine is stupid. Would a magazine for all whites be racist???

    • Patricia

      this magazine seems stupid for you because you are the target.

        There is magazine called Entrepreneur and it’s graced with plenty of white people. Is that racist? You don’t like it don’t read it…America the land of the free.

    • Michael Littlejohn

      David – Is “Men’s Health” sexist as it caters to men? What about “Woman’s Day”? Does “Cat Fancy” discriminate against dog owners? The magazine industry is built on a foundation of catering to unique, and diverse, groups. You are free, my friend, to buy any magazine you wish…. or not.

    • Trevanian

      Almost all magazines in America are for the majority of the population (i.e., white people). Just look at who appears on the covers. Fortune, Forbes, Business Week, all cover business issues for their constituency. BUt maybe I should no use such big words – if you don’t understand the need for a trade journal or special interest magazine, a rational explanation would certainly be over your head.

    I have always enjoyed reading about our Outstanding Leaders in your magazine through the last 30+ years. I am always very proud to see so many women in powerful positions. I remember when we weren’t even hired to be a secretary for some of those companies.
    Thank you, Black Enterprise, for continuing to provide a vehicle of hope for all our children.

    When we respond to people that are ignorant, we lower our standards. We need to educate them if they choose to be educated, if not then leave them to their own ignorants. This magazine is great because it give’s someone like myself hope and encouragement to continue getting my education and persue my dreams.
