Re: Ebony Magazine

The July 2015 article titled "Give Me Bawwdy" is a travesty. Showing overweight and obese black women in bathing suits only encourages other overweight and obese black women to pursue an unhealthy lifestyle.

Being overweight contributes to heart attacks, diabetes and high blood pressure. Ebony should be a magazine that encourages a healthy lifestyle. Fat is fat no matter how you color it.
