Top Philadelphia Inquirer Editor Resigns After ‘Buildings Matter, Too’ Headline


The top editor of The Philadelphia Inquirer has resigned after a “Buildings Matter, Too” headline spurred dozens of journalists of color inside the newsroom to skip work and demand the newspaper tackle diversity problems.

The Inquirer’s publisher, Lisa Hughes, announced in a memo to staff on Saturday that Executive Editor Stan Wischnowski would formally step down from his post on June 12, according to reports.

Hughes thanked Wischnowski for his service leading the paper, but noted that leadership would use the incident to “evaluate the organizational structure and processes of the newsroom, assess what we need, and look both internally and externally for a seasoned leader who embodies our values, embraces our shared strategy, and understands the diversity of the communities we serve,” the Inquirer reported.

    IF BLACKS LIVES MATTER, AND THEY REPRESENT LESS THAN 14% OF THE POPULATION OF THE USA: THEN WHY DO BLACKS KILL BLACKS MORE THAN OTHER RACES? WHY DOES BLACKS KILL WHITES MORE THAN OTHER RACES? WHY DO BLACKS KILL MORE COPS THAN OTHER RACES? WHY DO BLACKS DO MORE CRIMES THAN OTHER RACES? WHY ARE THE PRISONS FILLED WITH MORE BLACKS THAN OTHER RACES? THIS DOES MATTER AND FOR ME AND MY FAMILY WE PERFER FREEDOM, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS, SO MY WHITE LIFE MATTERS!!!

    We have the tail wagging the dog here. I believe it was ole Tommy Jefferson who said, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” With this relentless assault on the presidency, and thus, the will of the people, I fear we may be approaching that time. I can say, without fear, that if we had a DC type riot here in Gainesville, I would be at my business, fully armed and perfectly willing to permanently retire looters and violent people – and I’m a damn good shot. These violent cowards would do well to remember that old saying, “those who live by the sword, will die by the sword.” Try to hurt me, or my family, and your breathing minutes are numbered. No brag, just a fact.
