Kaja Perina, Editor-in-Chief of the Magazine, issued this statement:
“Last week, a blog post about race and appearance by Satoshi Kanazawa was published–and promptly removed–from this site. We deeply apologize for the pain and offense that this post caused. Psychology Today’s mission is to inform the public, not to provide a platform for inflammatory and offensive material. Psychology Today does not tolerate racism or prejudice of any sort. The post was not approved by Psychology Today, but we take full responsibility for its publication on our site. We have taken measures to ensure that such an incident does not occur again. Again, we are deeply sorry for the hurt that this post caused.”It is tiresome to see the continued attacks on Black women. I'm glad that there were many of us in cyberspace that responded strongly to the poor choice that Psychology Today made by publishing this article. I wonder if others will think twice before making another attack on our Black women??
