First black girls magazine comes under fire from furious viewers.
An owner of the UK´s first-ever magazine for black girls has come under fire with people calling it ´divisive´ and ´derogatory´
Serlina Boys appeared on Good Morning Britain on Thursday, October 22, saying that she set the magazine up after she struggled to find a magazine that was appropriate for her six-year old daughter.
She said, “When you grow up, a lot of black children grow up and they don’t see themselves in media and books…It is important for us for black children to have a publication that spoke to them.”
The news of the magazine left many viewers unhappy as they took to Twitter to vent their views.
A viewer commented, “What a hypocrite. How can you call the magazine Cocoa? Surely if we’re going to start saying what’s right and wrong, then that is derogative.”
Another said, “The cocoa girl magazine is just another example of division. I don’t understand why these things are being praised so highly.
“Surely it would be better to have more black kids in existing magazines? That’s proper inclusion.”
Boys said that the magazine was only for something to do whilst she was in lockdown but was overwhelmed by the reaction and demand for the publication.
