The Grand Hypocrisy of Ebony Magazine's "Cosby" Cover - Kierna Mayo STILL doesn't care about Black Women
I love people who are bold. And there can be noone bolder than Kierna Mayo and her side kicks over at Ebony Magazine. I couldn't escape the coverage of the latest Ebony magazine cover featuring a shattered photo of the cast of the Cosby show. And if anyone other than Kierna Mayo and her pro-rapist sidekicks had put together this cover, I wouldn't be giving it the side eye. This blog audience is already familiar with Miss Mayo's work and we all know that this woman and her side kicks coddle rapists --- when it is the popular thing to do.
Ebony Magazine has ZERO moral authority to purport to be airing the Black community's dirty laundry. Back when it was popular for institutions of the Black community to coddle sexual predators, Kierna Mayo, the current Editor and Chief of Ebony magazine was in charge of Ebony.com
If you will recall, Mayo and her online crew were the ones who published and article fawning over convicted child rapist Genarlow Wilson. They lied and said that he wasn't convicted of a crime when he was. When WAOD readers pointed out their error, Kierna Mayo and her subordinates said we were ignorant and didn't know what we were talking about--- despite the fact that we'd been writing about Wilson's case for SEVEN years at that point.
Kierna Mayo is unconcerned with predatory Black men. She is concerned with righting the sinking ship that is Ebony magazine. The only reason they ran this cover was because they probably couldn't afford a photo shoot for this month's issue.
I am impressed by the Holy Boldness and the revisionist history of Mayo and her crew. Just two year's ago, they were pro-rapist and now they are trying to cast themselves as genuinely concerned about the impact of sexual violence in the Black community.
Don't be fooled.
You can call me a broken record, a broken clock, call me whatever -But Kierna Mayo used up all of her moral authority propping up Genarlow Wilson - She doesn't have any.
There is nothing "courageous" about jumping on the anti-Cosby bandwagon to sell a couple of magazines. Courage is what WAOD readers have done for almost a decade - challenge the coddlers and defenders of rapists in the Black community while being mocked, criticized and browbeaten online.
For those who forgot what Kierna Mayo did a few year's ago, here's your refresher. http://www.whataboutourdaughters.com/…/ebony-magazine-edito…
I'm still recovering, but I couldn't resist posting seeing this hypocrite parade around on CNN.

More recently, Kierna Mayo was on MSNBC whitewashing and dismissing the misogyny of NWA and promoting Straight Outta Compton. - Denise
And as always, we provide receipts. Here is Mayo coo-ing about rapists and women-beaters NWA:
