Systemic or institutional racism is a powerful and enduring shibboleth among the Blacks and their “woke” “allies.” Herein, is one of many examples of why this is so and why the fabrication of systemic racism is now a lamentable part of the American zeitgeist.
Various non-White journalists, media oversight and accounting organizations. and racial activists regularly lament that Black males make up of only 6.8% of sports reporters, when the NFL, NBA, and WNBA are over 70% Black. And that is how you create systemic racism.
Black males make up approximately 6.5% of the entire US population. Hence, they’re slightly over-represented among sports reporters. However, that same 6.5% of the entire US population, the Black males, is providing over 70% of the players in most national sports leagues.
The issue, if there is one, isn’t a dearth of Black sports reporters; it’s that professional sports is very close to a Black Only industry insofar as the player base is concerned. That’s where there’s the result of racism.
But, instead, it holds value to certain sorts to ignore the vast over-representation of Black males in professional sports in favor of imagining a fabricating an issue with the smaller – nigh perfect representation – of them in sports reporting. So, they scream systemic racism.
Oh no! Another poor, oppressed Black was harassed by the police for “Walking While Black” … or not. Closer to the truth would be to say that ANS sufferer was busted by the American people for “Lying While Black.”
Dorothy Bland, a Black, wrote a horrific oped for the Dallas Morning News detailing how police in Corinth, TX accosted her for “Walking While Black.”
In it, Bland, who was a “journalist” and is now the Frank W. and Sue Mayborn School of Journalism and the director for the Frank W. Mayborn Graduate Institute of Journalism of North Texas, detailed her fears and White Supremacist oppression of the Corinth PD, hitting all the needful buzzwords to set off her bruthas and sistas, and the Liberals and Progressives who enable them.
Yeah, it’s pretty much like that. It’s nigh on impossible to get any of the MSM “journalists” to call Hamas terrorists because doing so would violate the prerequisite antisemitism of the MSM.
Indeed, the only group of Muslims that the Lamestream Media will label as terrorists is ISIS and that’s only because they’ve decided that “terrorist” is a more pro-Islam label for this Jihadist army. After all, they wouldn’t want to make it sound like ISIS is waging jihad and trying to bring into existence the Caliphate.
I think it’s time for we, the People to realize that the only way that the “journalists” of the MSM would ever win One Letter Hangman is if we hanged all them that got it wrong. 😉
That’s all well and good. It shows a certain pragmatic wisdom that is often lacking in American politicians. The problem is that, as the POTUS, Obama and his regime have decided to become the media, replacing the free press with their own staff.
Reality Show President: White House TV
As Reason TV so aptly describes, Obama has not only become a media mogul of sorts, he became one of America’s best known Reality Television celebrities, with the carefully scripted but oh-so-real looking image that is less even than a caricature of the person or office in question.
“The White House has effectively become a broadcast company,” says Michael Shaw, publisher of Bagnewsnotes.com, a site dedicated to the analysis of news images. Shaw explains how strategically composed photos, taken by official White House photographers, travel from social media sites that are controlled by the administration to the front pages of newspapers around the world.
The press publishes the official White House photographs because independent photographers and videographersÂ are increasingly barred from covering the president. This practice has diminished the power of the independent media as an exclusive distribution channel while empowering official photographers such as Pete Souza, who are on the presidential payroll. Â
And so, says Shaw, the public has been fed a steady diet of whatever kind of president the news cycle demands. When conspiracy theorists questioned Obama’s patriotism, we saw images of Obama the American everyman. To celebrate the anniversary of Rosa Parks’ 1955 refusal to move to the back of a public bus in Montgomery, Alabama, we saw Obama reenact her famous image. Time and again, we see Obama striking poses out of John F. Kennedy’s repertoire.Â The official White House photographers have created a presidential identity for every conceivable occasionâ€”as long as the image is flattering, and almost always, larger than life.
This would be both sad and laughable if it wasn’t both scarily effective and yet another nail in the coffin of America’s constitution, which demands a free press. Nor is it in any way wrong for the Obama Regime to try to get their crafted image of the President out there. The issue is that they’re stifling and supplanting the free press in order to do so. Down that road, and not very far at all, lies tyranny.
When it comes to children’s Halloween costumes, as opposed to those of adults, the basic choices are: scary, cute, funny, or heroic emulation.
The scary scary costume is, however, the choice with the most interesting varieties and the most room for creativity.
I’m Dressed As A Journalist
Well, dressing up as one of those who sold their souls to the Black God of the Tana is one way to stand out on Halloween. It’d probably get the kid a lot of candy too, as for disparate and antithetical reasons both Americans and Liberals would love it. 😛
