The HuffPost Opinion section made it a personal goal to limit the amount of white writers contributing to its pages, according to one opinion editor.
HuffPost Deputy Opinion Editor Chloe Angyal explained the opinion section focused on the goal of lifting up writers of color and making sure less than 50 percent of the writers are white.
Angyal also said she kept tally of the numbers throughout the month to ensure the opinion page was staying on track in ensuring the representation of minority, trans and gender non-binary writers was on track.
“This is definitely 100% how it works, mate,” Angyal responded when a Twitter commenter asked her if the policy meant qualified white writers were passed over for other writers.
The editor in chief for HuffPost did not return request for comment in time for publication.
