Esquire's Latest Cover Is Causing Controversy Online

The men's magazine profiled an average, white, middle class teen. During Black History Month. Who thought this was okay??

In case you missed it, men's lifestyle magazine Esquire released the cover story of their latest issue, and in it, they are profiling...an average, white, American teen.

As expected, the cover wasn't received well...

With discussions of diversity and representation as prevelant as ever in American culture, the last thing a mainstream publication needs to be doing is uplifting the voices of people who have so much privilege, visibility, and who already take up so much space.

Many people also pointed out that the timing of this story was in very poor taste, considering that the cover was released in February (Black History Month), the cover is for March (Women's History Month), and especially considering how Esquire previously decided to kill a story reporting on Bryan Singer's alleged sexual abuse of underage boys.

So what are your thoughts on Esquire's latest cover story? Let us know in the comments and on Twitter
