Re: President Obama’s talk to the press… Another incidence of the typical Faux News racism. In this interview of Dr. Ben Carson, who was the black conservative darling for a while and Congresswoman Donna Edwards from Maryland. The Faux News host throws about every racist meme possible into the “interview”, and in several instances tries to put words in the mouths of Edwards and Carson. Neither interviewee takes the pathetic race bait.
The Faux Host even offers up charging Zimmerman with “Hate Crimes” – which is a joke, as you have to have been convicted of another crime (such as murder) before you can be convicted of a Hate Crime. And the whole point is that Zimmerman hasn’t been convicted of any crime.
Bill Maher –
I think what he was trying to teach — a teachable moment for the American public — was that the frustration in the black community here is not just about the verdict, it’s about this culture of suspicion that follows black people around….
But lots of conservatives said it was race-baiting and it seems to be their position that unless you are marching down the street with a white hood on and burning a cross on somebodies lawn, racism is over. And I think what the president is saying is, no, open your eyes white America, it is so not over.
And I just think that they want that recognition. I mean, I’ve said this before: I would be a very bad black person because I would not have taken it as well as they have. I really wouldn’t. I’d be a lot more pissed off. I mean, I’m really amazed that the parents, Trayvon Martin’s parents. Wow!
