Black Families Hurt by Magazine's War on Conservatives

I wonder if "Ebony" and "Jet" really voice what the majority of black folks think today. After all, I understand that neither magazine is completely black-owned.

These two magazines were founded, and continue to be run by, the Johnson Publishing Company. Based in Chicago, it's a prominent black family-owned business. The patriarch, John Johnson, died several years ago. Current chairwoman is his daughter, Linda Johnson Rice, and its CEO is former Obama White House social secretary Desiree Rogers.

All this looks pretty black to me.

Dear Ebony,

I do not have high hopes, given the way Ebony treats black non-liberals, that you will review my new book, "Dear Father, Dear Son: Two Lives, Eight Hours." It is, in the end, about the importance of fathers -- and the damage done to a child who grows up without one.

Why do I know you will ignore my book despite its examination of the most important issue facing "black America"? Your magazine treats black conservatives as if they were the enemy, that they bring nothing valid to the discussion.

Ebony magazine, a monthly staple of American black life...
