White writers need not send their submissions to the Huffington Post.
In a series of tweets on Wednesday, Chloe Angyal, the popular site’s deputy opinion editor, said one of her goals this month was to ensure less than 50 percent of content was published by “white authors.”
Ms. Angyal said she keeps close tabs on the races and genders of contributors to the opinion page and would like to publish more transgender and Hispanic authors.
This month, she said 63 percent of the opinion page’s content was written by women, including transwomen, and 53 percent by writers of color.
Social media users wondered why an author’s race or gender are relevant.
