Arianna and Sheila to Tackle ‘Black Experience’


By Betsy Rothstein Comment

HuffPost Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington is taking racial sensitivities to a whole new level. HuffPost announces today that it’s linking up with BET-Co-founder Sheila Johnson to launch “HuffPost GlobalBlack.” As explained in a release, it’s “a new online platform offering news, politics, culture, opinion, and video through the lens of the black experience.”

Johnson’s quote: “The Huffington Post is at the center of social news: the idea that people want to engage in the news and opinion of the day and not just consume them. The Huffington Post is the ideal partner for us to create a thriving online black community of scale, a forum for ideas and discussion meant to inform, engage, surprise and entertain.”
