Gosh, these people are coming unglued. During Thursday’s edition of Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews declared that “Fox News nation” (aka Trump supporters) are not interested in the American people “get[ting] along with each other” but instead “hat[ing] each other.” Matthews upped the craziness by arguing that, on the NFL’s new national anthem policy, “[t]elling the football players we watch on Sunday to behave as they are told is something we expect of apartheid regime, not a democratic one.”
It's no wonder we're being barraged by white guilt and black angst from the nation's sports media. According to the 2018 Associated Press Sports Editors (APSE) Racial and Gender Report Card, most of the people working in sports media are white men, and the New York Daily News' Carron J. Phillips is none too pleased about this revelation. For him, sports media has more to do with the race of the reporter and less to do with the reporter of the race.
Whether America is still racist probably depends on how the term “racism” is being defined in the discussion. Are we talking about official government policies? Are we discussing genetic determinism and innate inferiority? Are we referring more broadly to negative opinions about people from different racial or ethnic backgrounds? Or are we simply talking about people who disagree with us on matters involving race.
ABC’s newest show For The People is quickly working its way through the Social Justice Warrior checklist. We’re only on the third episode, and already they're discussing both racial bias and illegal immigration at the same time. Here I thought we'd only have to deal with items on the liberal agenda one at a time. This might be too much even for a Shonda Rhimes show!
Netflix’s Seven Seconds can be summed up by a drunken slur uttered during its fifth episode: “You’re all racist a**holes. Every one of you cops.” And when it comes to this show, that statement is correct. Seven Seconds, released February 23, portrays police officers and the justice system as incredibly racist and apathetic. The show revolves around the hit-and-run death of Brenton Butler, a 15-year-old black kid, at the hands of police officer Peter Jablonski (Beau Knapp) and three other white police officers in New Jersey. Although the collision is an accident, the police officers decide to flee the scene, believing the boy to be dead. Brenton is found alive 12 hours later and taken to the hospital, where he eventually dies. An investigation and trial ensue, to the dismay of all the police officers.
Carter G. Woodson, noted scholar, historian and educator, created "Negro History Week" in 1926, which became Black History Month in 1976. Woodson chose February because it coincided with the birthdays of black abolitionist Frederick Douglass and President Abraham Lincoln.
'When they go low, we go lower' must have been the mantra for Friday’s Hardball as host Chris Matthews and his opening set of guests denounced Republicans as “North Korean infantry men” led by “racist” President Trump, “sniveling and supine” Ben Carson, “decorative” African-Americans, and “pathetic” House Speaker Paul Ryan.
On Tuesday’s Morning Joe, economic analyst Steve Rattner used a series of charts and graphs to deliver a supposedly straight, facts-oriented report about President Trump’s federal judicial nominations to date. However, Rattner could not help but devolve into standard left-wing talking points impugning Trump as a racist patriarch looking to deliberately exclude non-whites and women from the bench.
Welcome to one of the holidays liberals hate the most -- Thanksgiving. When the alt-left isn’t hating on Christopher Columbus, bashing Christmas, disrespecting veterans or undermining the national anthem, they find time to target a national day when we give thanks. And when they hate, boy do they hate. This year’s target? The Pilgrims.
A young African American resident learns a necessary lesson in the November 20 episode of ABC’s The Good Doctor. She learns she must treat even the most difficult of patients because it is her job. Meanwhile, ABC wants you to learn the benefits of affirmative action through the evils of Nazism.
It is the sixth episode of CBS’s SEAL Team and the show is still trying to figure out what it wants to be. Are they going to question if we’re the good guys or are they going to show us as the good guys, because this back and forth isn’t working. In Wednesday night’s episode "The Spinning Wheel," they come right out of the gate playing the race card … then fold.
Let's throw out a few numbers so we can put in perspective the NFL players taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem. Many say they are protesting against police treatment of blacks and racial discrimination. We might ask just how much sense their protest makes. According to The Washington Post, 737 people have been shot and killed by police this year in the United States. Of that number, there were 329 whites, 165 blacks, 112 Hispanics, 24 members of other races and 107 people whose race was unknown.
