A while back, Revolt shed 30% of its staff, many if not all of whom were writing for the website. As long as Revolt has been around, I've never read an article on their site, nor have I seen anyone linking to articles on their site, so that may have been a matter of "addition by subtraction."
According to a letter from a former Revolt employee addressed to the network's board of directors, 99% of the people who were left go were black. Also, Revolt's CEO Roma Khanna, it's alleged, is at the very least racially insensitive. She was quoted as saying that the campaign to free Meek Mill should perhaps focus on teaching him to not get locked up in the first place, and that she's intimidated by black women.
The latter I could almost see, because let's keep it real, I'm literally the size of three black women (who, perhaps needless to say, aren't small), and even I'm kinda intimidated by them. You can't just go upside their heads, because they might be related to gangbangers. Revolt CEO Khanna, if Google image search is any indication, is a woman of a certain size, but that wouldn't necessarily aid her in dealing with black women, especially if she's having to compete for men.
I can kinda sympathize with Diddy, because he can't just fire the CEO based on some shit said by some hoodrat who doesn't even work there anymore. He could fuck around and get sued! The whole point of the layoffs was to cut his expenses, not increase them. In a statement, he says that the Revolt staff post-layoffs remains roughly 2/3 minority about 60% female, as if the latter constitutes progress. If a black guy had been running the place, this wouldn't be an issue. Er, at least the race aspect of it.
