Editor-In-Chief of Dutch Magazine 'JACKIE' Resigns After Calling RIHANNA And Her Fashion 'The Ultimate N*ggab***h*... *PAUSE*

As many of you have heard, Dutch Magazine 'JACKIE' recently insulted both Rihanna and the Black community by calling Rihanna and her fashion the ultimate 'N*ggab***h with a ghetto a**'.

I am ABSOLUTELY FLOORED. Is our world seriously still embedded in racism?? Maybe I've been too comfortable in America with minimal racism, but what the HECK is going on over in that Dutch country to be calling black people NIGGAS and saying that JAMAICANS, BARBADIANS, AND REGULAR AFRICAN-AMERICANS are all the same?? Like, to categorize a certain type of ethnicity is BALONEY, like thick/nappy hair and dark skin all go together??

Needless to say, the 'JACKIE' editor Eva Hoeke RESIGNED and issued an apology. An apology?? *Scoff* Whatever:

The magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Eva Hoeke issued an apology saying: “I can be brief about this: this should have never happened. Period. While the author meant no harm — the title of the article was intended as a joke — it was a bad joke, to say the least. And that slipped through my, the editor-in-chief’s, fingers. Stupid, painful and sucks for all concerned. The author has been addressed on it, and now I can only ensure that these terms will no longer end up in the magazine. Furthermore I hope that you all believe there was absolutely no racist motive behind the choice of words. It was stupid, it was naive to think that this was an acceptable form of slang — you hear it all the time on TV and radio, then your idea of what is normal apparently shifts — but it was especially misguided: there was no malice behind it.We make our magazine with love, energy and enthusiasm, and it can sometimes happen that someone is out of line. And then you can only do one thing: apologize. And hope that others wish to accept it. From the bottom of my heart I say it again: we never intended to offend anyone. And I mean that.”

The Only Jaiden does not condone PROFANITY on its blog because it degrades the intentional content of the blog: FASHION. So the following picture contains profanity that I must present to the Black community. I claim NO responsibility for the offensive nature of the picture.
