Remember when that Glamour editor told luncheon full of lady lawyers that like, having black hair is one thing if you're, like, Allen Iverson or Sir Mixalot or whatever, but in the corporate world you needed to keep your politics out of your hair i.e. not be black? Okay, so then, remember how our sister site Gawker outed Glamour "Suze on Style" blogger and executive fashion editor Suze Yalof Schwartz as the probable culprit? So guys! Today on "Suze On Style"


I think I've truly seen it all now - check this out: The Brazilian Butt Enhancer. Seriously, I've never met someone who wanted a larger rear, have you?

Ha ha ha ha so you're blogging to us from the year 1957, Suze? Anyway, we consulted the writer of the original American Lawyer piece, Vivia Chen, on the incident for a reaction as to, you know, WTF.

And she basically replied that she had been told that the original Glamour racist was a "junior person," as Glamour editor Cindi Leive herself claimed in a letter to the magazine, in which she identified the employee simply as "junior staffer" who, while "not a beauty editor" was nevertheless an "editor." So did Cindi simply fall on her subterfugesword to cover up for an incurable, irredeemable racist? Or does Glamour actually employ TWO separate editors who have never heard the song "Baby Got Back"?

@popularheresy: But is it normal (or okay) for white women to want to look like white women of a different ethnicity? Even among white women, we too often strive to appear whiter by fitting certain white ideals...like a small nose, small thighs, light and straight hair.

When you have white people trying to be "whiter," that is going to add to larger scale racism. It will result in white people with low self esteem doing their best to differentiate themselves from people who are not white, in order to show how white they are. And then, well....maybe that leads to incidents like Jena, or America's ability to lock a third of a generation of African American in prison without thinking twice.
