You can go into a ghetto and find Blacks who hate Whites, many who don't have cable. And I'm also willing to bet that many Blacks who watch CNN live in predominantly White areas and are middle class. Those are all of the Black CNN viewers that I know. Actually, the vast majority of CNN viewers that I know are White, and very often married to other White people.

Much of the hatred that is going on existed before CNN existed. And it will exist when CNN goes away.

I never said they were the sole source of the problem. They are merely reinforcing the hatred that existed. And that is certainly not a good thing. I think on that, we can all agree. A world with less hatred is a better world.

CNN? Gee, and I thought that all this black hate was because of all this evil rap music they listen to.

This dude has probably watched as much CNN as he has Lawrence Welk re runs.

There's no such thing as a “hate crime.”

The alleged hate crimes committed by this cowardly, young, black man assaulting old white people and a young white woman aren't on the front page of the national news. wonder why? of course, we know why. black racism doesn't fit the msm narrative.

I knew one Black guy many years ago, who had some resentment towards Whites. He didn't grow up in the ghetto. He lived in areas that were about 90% White. I'm wondering if his experience with Whites had something to do with his disdain for Whites.

The moral is this. Blaming CNN or FOX News ignores much bigger problems in society.
Why WOULD you blame white supremacy on Fox News?

Only one? Let's be honest here. Black kids have been taught their whole lives that whites are out to get them. It's like when I lived in the South. They STILL talk about Yankees, blah, blah, blah. I was from Ohio and I didn't spend my whole life talking about a war that happened over a hundred years before I was born. We never even thought about it.

Black folks can be racist, and black folks can commit hate crimes. Happens quite a lot, actually.



It is only another broken narrative of the victimization industrial complex that suggests hate crimes are a "white" phenomena, or that there's an increase in white-perpetrated hate crimes due to Donald Trump. In fact, white people commit hate crimes at rates lower than their percent of the population.


It's smoke and mirrors, and the statistics do not bear out the narrative (as usual). There's an agenda, and it's up to us to continue to educate people on how to spot the agenda and destroy the narrative that seeks to cast white (men especially) as a menace to society. Even by omission the implication is that white men are on the prowl. For example, I saw an article about the death of "trans women of color"... with the implication that "Trump's America" is causing this... thus, white men. When in fact, a profile of the victims and victimizers shows white men noticeably absent from these crimes... and the coverage they receive. Instead, the innuendo persists to drive that wedge against white America and create a scenario of "black and brown against the town."


Teach your kids to spot the bias, and don't be dumb enough to buy it yourself. The division is poison.

All crime is hate. If only all crime was treated equally - but some of it so very well weaved into the culture that no one notices or even cares.
