NOTE: “We have received concern noting that we are using the ‘incorrect’ title for the New York Times opinion piece. We appreciate the concern and updates on this. We really appreciate all your feedback and updates. The title we are using, “Why Black Women are Fat” is the original title the Times used. Later, the it was changed. This article is now called “Black Women and Fat.” We continue to refer to the article by its original name in part for the sake of clarity, and also because the original title provoked most of the ensuing controversy and conversation about the issue.” Thank you all again!
