Alexi McCammond’s views on race go beyond the anti-Asian sentiment she previously expressed.
Over at The National Pulse, more background on incoming Teen Vogue editor-in-chief’s views on race has been discovered. In the opening paragraphs alone they established how McCammond “culturally appropriated” Native American garments by dressing as one for Halloween 2011.
According to current leftist cultural standards, this is seen as a bad thing. For reference we can cite the recent issue surrounding Chris Harrison of The Bachelor. He defended a contestant who dressed like a southern belle in 2018, which in itself drew accusations of slavery.
The network saw the simple act of someone dressing in a costume to be enough of a racist offense, that eventually led to the longtime The Bachelor host stepping down.
On September 1st 2013, Alexi McCammond wrote “FROM TWERKING AT THE VMAS TO TWERKING WITH WORDS: MY TAKE ON RACISM” on her personal blog.
Her take is that not enough attention is given to black-on-black crime:
“I am a biracial female, so I typically feel some sort of a personal conflict whenever the topic of racism comes up. Do I believe racism across all ethnic groups still exists today? Yes. Is it clear that Blacks struggle with feeling equal to other races, particularly Whites? Of course. But while reading the many articles dissing Miley for being “racist” and how Blacks often feel various forms of negative attention from Whites, I cannot seem to find personal solace with the lack of attention given to black-on-black racism.”
The National Pulse points out that Teen Vogue’s own stance as an outlet points toward believing black-on-black crime is a taboo subject. A cited July 2020 op-ed’s leading statement on the topic is that “white supremacists have long promoted the idea that Black people are inherently more violent” in talking about it.
Many first heard about the story after Deputy White House Press Secretary TJ Ducklo tried to stop a story coming out about him dating Alexi McCammond of Axios. Ducklo resigned from his job over the hostile nature in which he engaged the Politico reporter involved there.
That happened mid-February. Fast forward to the start of March and Alexi McCammond shifts jobs to become Teen Vogue’s new editor in chief. In a matter of days it was then revealed that McCammond carried a lot of Twitter baggage, in the form of anti-Asian tweets dating back to 2011. This in itself stirred up the Teen Vogue employee base to protest Alexi’s hiring.
It was enough of a controversy to have cosmetics brand Ulta pause a million-dollar ad campaign on Teen Vogue’s site in response.
Alexi McCammond released a renewed apology in light of the social media aftermath. She is still set to begin on March 24th at Teen Vogue, at the time of writing.
