I purchased the November issue of Essence Magazine which is primarily an African American publication Judging by the type of products being advertised in this magazine its target economic demographic is middle to upper class Does Essence magazine accurately reflect the African American ethnic group or does it merely cast black models into white roles This magazine is filled with articles that relate to women while some of the pieces are not limited by a specific race most of the content is meant to reach the middle class African American woman One of the major articles is a piece on domestic violence and the rising occurrence of violence among teenage couples This is a concerning issue among many races but the article was laced with black stasticis and the real-life stories involved black girls as the victims of domestic violence at the hands of black teenage boys There is no doubt that this article could have been written with facts and stories featuring any race This does not discount its validity as an ethnic article or its importance to its readers Domestic violence is a global issue we cannot limit the contents of this magazine only to things that happen to or affect the black population Another feature article covers a black womans fight to raise her sons to marry black women The piece Bring me home a black woman breaks down the common side effects of black men marrying outside their race The emotions and ideas described are more commonly felt among minorities Mothers might find it easy to identify with the story because a mom can understand wanting your child to do well and grow up to marry in the image of their mom There are multi-racial marriages amongst all races but the black man and white woman is the most common with over 200000 such marriages today This article could be written to portray any race but we live in a time
