Criminal activity imposes huge costs on black residents in low-income neighborhoods of cities such as Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, St. Louis, Philadelphia and many others. Thousands of black Americans were murdered in 2019. Over 90% of the time, the perpetrator was also black. Leftists and social justice warriors charge that what blacks have to fear most is being shot and killed by police, but the numbers don't add up. For several years, The Washington Post has been documenting police shootings in America.
Only one man of color got a head coaching job in the NFL's recent round of hires, proving to The Undefeated's senior NFL writer that the league has a "white is right" mentality. Furthermore, Jason Reid writes that league owners could not care less about inclusive hiring.
Last Tuesday (January 7), it was announced that Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann would settle his lawsuit with the Jeffrey Zucker-led CNN for an undisclosed amount after they tried to ruin his life last year. Luckily for CNN, they’ve all but ignored this on-air (save 29 seconds from Brian Stelter on Reliable Sources) and had help with blackouts from ABC, CBS, MSNBC, and NBC. In contrast, the Fox News Channel spent 12 minutes and 56 seconds on the settlement.
A voter may dislike a black, homosexual or female candidate, but it's not likely that he would openly admit it. However, diversity-crazed leftist/progressive Democrats have openly condemned the physical characteristics of some of their 2020 presidential candidates. Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are leading the polls despite the fact that they have been condemned as old white men. While Pete Buttigieg is homosexual, something that pleases diversity crazies, he is also a white man, young and religious.
The recent hiring of three white NFL head coaches has led to an outbreak of complaints by minority media, notably panelists on ESPN's First Take program and Roland Martin of Unfiltered: The Daily Digital Show. In their complaints against African Americans not getting any of these head coaching jobs, the media called for various levels of controls and legal means to stop the NFL for what Martin calls blatant "whiteness."
Over the weekend, MSNBC host Al Sharpton repeated a study highlighted last March by the Washington Post that made the claim that during the 2016 presidential race, there was an increase in hate crimes in counties that held Donald Trump rallies, even though the findings were discredited as misleading last September by another study published by Reason magazine. MSNBC host Yasmin Vossoughian also cited the flawed study again on last Thursday's First Look show.
GLAAD media will be recognizing pop megastar Taylor Swift’s commitment to LGBTQ issues during the gay entertainment lobby’s annual award show later this year.
Norman Chad thought the 2008 election of Barack Obama as president would bring about a post-racial America, but instead he finds the National Football League offering evidence to the contrary. Chad's Washington Post commentary on the dearth of African American head coaches in pro football strengthens the publication's credentials as a dependable race-mongering voice.
Add Toy Story 4 to the list of ridiculous things called racist. In a January 3 op-ed, The Hollywood Reporter managed to deem a movie about animated children’s playthings to be problematic. While offering effusive praise for Toy Story 4 being “exuberantly entertaining” and “creatively conceived,” in the end, author Stephen Galloway reported he was left with a “slightly bitter taste” and the “sense that something was naggingly wrong.”
NBC’s flagship affiliate WNBC in New York City faced a well-deserved backlash tsunami on Thursday for an ugly piece that appeared to blame the rise of anti-Semitic attacks in the city and surrounding communities on....Jewish people themselves. Thursday morning, an authorless piece entitled “Anti-Semitism Grows in Jewish Communities in NYC Suburbs” was tweeted from the @NBCNewYork Twitter account: “With the expansion of Orthodox communities outside NYC has come civic sparring, and some fear the recent violence may be an outgrowth of that conflict.”
On Monday's Anderson Cooper 360, CNN promoted a New Year's Day special on singer Linda Ronstadt with a pre-recorded interview between Ronstadt and host Cooper in which the singer became the latest liberal to hyperbolically liken President Donald Trump to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. Cooper did little to push back as the liberal singer claimed that Mexicans "are the new Jews," and matter-of-factly claimed Trump's rise to power "is exactly the same" as what Hitler did.
CNN’s Jake Tapper doesn’t often shy away from calling attention to anti-Semitism, even when it comes from those on his side of the political spectrum. He called out the systemic anti-Semitism at the United Nations and broke through the media blackout when the rest refused to cover the Louis Farrakhan controversy. Monday became another one of those instances when he invited New York Times staff editor Bari Weiss and Vox senior politics reporter Jane Coaston to discuss the double standard in the attention given to anti-Semitic attacks based on the attacker.
