It's Boogie Down Wednesday!

Watch How Fox News Really Talks About Black America

By Sanders Deionne February 24, 2014

Fox News celebrated Black History Month with five-second clips highlighting the achievements of African-Americans. However, as Media Matters excellently points out, "Let's take a look at how at how Fox News covers issues that affect African-Americans throughout the rest of the year."

The video shows the network typically frames discussions about African-Americans and blackness around criminality, cultural degeneracy and racial inferiority, painting a very broad, disrespectful and stereotypical image of a diverse group that has made great contributions to American society.

On one hand, it might be easy to dismiss Fox News which has a stellar reputation for race-baiting and offensive rhetoric about race and supporting an anti-multicultural agenda. On the other hand, one cannot ignore the possible influence of the most watched cable news network among 25-54 year olds (although viewership is steadily declining). This is particularly true because racial perceptions have very real consequences on fairness and how individuals are treated.

Just take a look at this social experiment conducted by Jason Roberts that recently went viral.

How Fox News Talks About African-Americans When It's Not Black History Month


Instead of wasting time there, they could've been at the donut shop

Right Wing rhetoric is about as close to reality as this galaxy is to the Hubble Deep Field...

Then why does the media treat that crap as something that's legit? We really need to call these asses on their shit, especially on social media. They all have Twitter feeds, FB pages and email accounts, they all work for someone else with the same. We need to organize massive response, that's what the Right is doing this very moment against us.

Simply because none of these people are held responsible for the bullshit that they're proffering to the world and the Reality Based World is left to clean up their messes. Without sufficient outrage and response, for the most part. It's, "Ho-hum, let's get the mop and bucket."

Enough of that bull.

I've said it before; when they fail, we should simply let them wallow in it. Sure, they'll blame us, as they always need scapegoats for their failures, but I say that we reiterate to them that this mess of a world we're in is the exact one they've asked for, much less what we've done to keep it from getting worse.

I say we start with the Global Climate Change deniers first. I'm going to hazard a guess and say that this year will offer some pretty dire climate related problems. When they happen, I suggest we point towards the deniers and tell everyone that this is their fault that things are so bad. We name names and publish them. Interview them as well, they are pretty much guaranteed to say the worst things ever.

Next, we do the same with the misogynists, the racist xenophobes, the supply siders and the rest of them. Force them to OWN their reprehensible words and horrible positions.

Make them pay.
