Is that the building that was, until recently, a Chinese restaurant?

Nothing like poor choice in quote selection to get folks talking! JEEZ I'm not sure it was a fair choice,for the author or the young man that made the statement, to use that quote in such a manner that is misleading and taken out of context. Don't editors & journalists have a code of ethics or a sense of social responsibility?

Writers have no control over the cover art or quotes pulled to go along with their articles. The cover quote is one sentence taken out of a lengthy article. I thought Elizabeth did a beautiful job on this piece.

Even if it's one piece taken out of a lengthy article, the point is, it’s not relevant. If you're going to have a small sentence like that on the front of a magazine for the world to see, it needs to be a topic or at least tie in to the story. So evidently The Reader put this on the cover to try to offend Black girls, because if they would have read this article, they would have used a sentence more related to this story, not "Nobody likes Black girls" Foolishness.
