    OP updated 2/17/16 @ 8:21 PM

    Inspired by this tweet.

    And this thread.
    http://www.thecoli.com/threads/pitchfork-has-44-writers-only-4-are-black-update-t-l-o-p-9-10.241796/

    Here's a run down of all of the black employees and these publications.
    VICE
    Employees of the month y'all.
    February's Employees of the Month | VICE | United States

    NO BLACK PEOPLE!

    UPDATE: 4/10/16

    NOW I see alot of y'all still talking about Vice, making threads about them noisey ATL, CHIRAQ, Miami, etc documenatries with rappers but look at that and then take a look at these articles and then put two and two together to find out why Vice has no black people on their staff.
    Google

    Complex

    4 black people work for complex.

    Out of 24 total employees.

    SPIN Magazine

    GQ
    http://www.thecoli.com/threads/gq-young-thug-is-an-atlien-and-the-best-rapper-alive-link.401337/

    And how many black folks work there?

    So the grand total between pitchfork (4), rolling stone (0), vice (0), noisey (2) complex (4), SPIN (2), and GQ(1) is is...

    13 black writers/editors....
    TOTAL

    Look at (Some) of the rappers they prop up.
    Then look at (Some) of the rock bands they prop up.
    There's almost always some stark contrast between the talent.
    Rock bands can be interesting, eclectic, talented individuals
    like a Tame Impala or Alt J while the rappers seem to be the
    most vapid ass hats they can find on Sound cloud, some of which have
    gotten burn on The Coli.

    That tells me all I need to know about the staff at these publications.

    It's like they purposely keep black people out of the equation on the journalistic side of things.

    I can't believe once upon a time I wanted to work for one of these publications. Glad I didn't, they'd probably throw my resume in the trash.

    This is why I can't take their opinions seriously. Not to mention most of their articles REEK of self-importance and try-hard overdramatic penmanship. It's almost embarrasing
