Edward Enninful Describes Racial Profiling Incident at 'Vogue' London Office

“…We cannot let the world return to how it was,” the editor-in-chief wrote.

Edward Enninful, editor-in-chief of British Vogue, took to Instagram on July 15 to describe an incident of racial profiling that occurred at the publication’s London headquarters. According to the editor, who is one of few Black executives at Condé Nast, a security guard in the building directed him to use the loading bay. Presumably, the guard assumed Enninful was not an employee who could use the front entrance.

According to a report by WWD, Condé Nast immediately fired the security guard who profiled Enninful.  Despite the company’s swift action, Enninful pointed out that racism is still deeply embedded into some people’s perceptions of others. “Just because our timelines and weekends are returning to normal, we cannot let the world return to how it was,” he wrote on Instagram. “Change needs to happen. And it needs to happen now.”
