Color of Change has seen enough of Fox´s long-running reality show COPS.The group, co-founded by 9/11 truther Van Jones, is urging the network and sponsors to abandon the series. It claims one of the original reality shows on television profits off of, and dehumanizes, blacks. "Research shows that with such a narrow range of Black characters and personalities in primetime, the negative perceptions and distorted images presented by shows like COPS, create an atmosphere of suspicion and desensitizes and conditions audiences
Comments: I´m actually surprised they haven´t targeted the show ´Bridezillas´. That show does black men and women NO favors.
I do an inward groan every time they film in Indiana. Where they find so many toothless-no short wearing-hillbilly talking white people in this state, I have no idea. They don´t represent my state and I sure don´t think blacks on Cops represent the entire race. Ethnicity, whichever.
One can only hope that on some future episode of Cops, Van Jones is pulled over for a felony, resists arrest, and is tasered culminating with the fandago being played wth police batons on that racist hate-filled shaved noggin´ of his. Now that is an epiode of Cops I would record for posterty.
#8, there should be a contest as to which state comes off the worst. New Mexico and Florida would be my votes. Does any man in Florida ever wear a shirt? And apparently mullets are still in style there.
http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=2406 provides information and articles about Van Jones, his background, associates and affiliations. As usual, George Soros is in the picture.
Another useful tool for investigating the connections of characters like this is www.muckety.com. Anyone who has not explored the gigantic spiderweb woven by George Soros is probably sleeping better at night than they ought to.
Leftists, radicals, Communists, Marxists and neo-Marxists, along with militant eco-cranks and Green fanatics are the Western equivalent of jihadists. They are implacable enemies of free speech, which they invariably seek to stifle and whenever possible eliminate altogether.
Jones is just another racial snake oil salesman peddling his version of identity victim politics and anti-capitalist social democracy. It is interesting to learn the identities of some of his funding sources.
Guess Van Jones has a bone to pick with "Cops". It was during his "unfortunate" incarceration that he had a come to Marxism moment, and realized that he wanted to be a commuist when he grew up. Looks like he made his wish come true. The big check he receives from Soros for continuing this life-style is what causes his perpetual grin.
People like Van Jones, Nutter, and other black "leaders" want blacks to be seen as a group, and a group that is victimized. They do not want blacks to be seen as individuals with positive and negative characteristics depending on the individual. Thus, anything that is negative cannot be tolerated. Everything must be positive, which is stupidity at its height -- not to mention an out and out lie
There are other shows (not as interesting as COPS) that portray blacks in dehumanizing ways: any game show, any comedy show, any fashion show, any judge show. Unfortunately, these people are caught in the act of ´´being themselves.´´ (Thanks, Alan Funt.)
I rode around a lot with city police officers and listened to the police scanner 12 hours a day to report on various stories and get to know police officers. Here´s one conclusion I reached about crime demographics.
1. 90% of the calls come from 10% of the addresses.
2. The police have little or no time to "self-initiate" calls; there are so many calls to 911 that they stay busy just about the entire shift.
3. Conclusion: neighbors are reporting criminals; cops don´t have time to stop people carrying TVs; blacks are reporting blacks.
Haven´t seen it in several years, but Animal Planet used to have program Animal Cops, filmed in cities like NY, Detroit, Miami. I noticed by and large, those shows were particularly damming of black behavior too.
"distorted images"? "police misconduct"? I haven´t seen COPS in years, but from what I remember, it was just cops arresting criminals. White, black, whatever. just criminals. BTW, anyone else notice Van Jones capitalized the word "Black"? As if it is a proper noun/adjective now? Is there such a thing as a proper adjective?
Unfortunately for a lot of innocent black people, most non-black people consider that a majority of black folks have dehumanized themselves by way of their degenerate, destructive, and violent culture long ago. Nobody can do anything about that but black folks themselves. Obviously black folks are not ready to break out of that culture and instead claim discrimination when the worst aspects of their culture are brought to the attention of the greater US and world populations.
President Obama will travel to Desert Vista High School in Phoenix next week to highlight housing and the middle class. The speech, scheduled for Tuesday morning, would be the latest in a series of talks on the progress made and the challenges that remain as the U.S. slowly recovers from a recession. It revisits themes that Obama spoke about during his first presidential visit to Arizona in February.(snip)Obama has delivered campaign-style speeches in the past two weeks on investing in infrastructure, lowering the cost of college loans and overhauling the tax code
President Barack Obama privately told Democratic senators Wednesday he is now personally involved in resolving a heated dispute over how Obamacare treats Capitol Hill aides and lawmakers, according to senators in the meeting. The president’s commitment was delivered at the beginning of Obama’s remarks to Senate Democrats during a closed-door session. At issue is whether Obama’s health care law allows the federal government to continue to pay part of the health insurance premiums for members of Congress and thousands of Hill aides when they are nudged onto health exchanges.
For incoming NBC News boss Deborah Turness, the task of turning around the embattled news division just got tougher. “ABC World News With Diane Sawyer” scored a narrow victory over “NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams” last week, breaking his 243-week winning streak. Sawyer beat Williams among viewers 25-to-54 years old, the most important category for advertisers on news. Coverage of the George Zimmerman trial and the birth of the royal baby helped “World News” win by a narrow margin of 38,000 viewers. ABC drew 1.917 million viewers, compared with 1.879 million at NBC.
There have been days since her son Ezekiel was born 11 months ago that Los Angeles mom Beth Capper has gone without food to keep up her supply. One friend was arrested for stealing some. It´s not drugs or alcohol or even baby formula that has put her in such a bind. It´s diapers. "There´s no way around buying them," said Capper, a 41-year-old single mother who doesn´t work because of a disability. Across the country, mothers like Capper are facing the same predicament. According to a report published Monday in the
A Thai couple who were struck and killed by lightning had gone to the Grand Canyon as part of their honeymoon, according to the cousin of the man who died. Aram Kawewong and Ratchaya Tantranon had traveled to the United States from Thailand and were killed July 23 by a single bolt of lightning at a LeFevre Scenic Overlook on Arizona 89A in northern Arizona. Jeralynn Kozak, from Green Acres, Fla., said she is the cousin of Kawewong. She said the couple were married July 10 and were near the Grand Canyon as
There was no conciliatory phone call, no heart-to-heart talk to soothe the tensions. No one knows exactly when President Barack Obama and Republican Sen. John McCain went from bitter rivals in the 2008 presidential campaign and foes over health care and national security to bipartisan partners.Yet in recent months, an alignment on high-profile domestic issues — not to mention an eye on their respective legacies — has transformed Obama and McCain into Washington´s most unexpected odd couple. The Arizona senator is a regular visitor to the West Wing and in near-daily contact with senior White House officials.
Jane Fonda´s turn as Nancy Reagan has outraged fans of the former first lady but the actress says "The Gipper´s" wife is happy she landed the role. "I don´t think that whatever differences there might be in our politics really matters you know," says the actress in a new clip promoting the film ´The Butler´ which follows the life of a White House worker who served eight presidents. A vocal liberal, Fonda sparked outraged in the 1970´s when she toured North Vietnam, earning the moniker "Hanoi Jane" and critics blasted her casting as Nancy Reagan when it was announced
President Obama said reporters praise his economic proposals as “great” and tell him they are “all good ideas.”Obama made the remarks in a speech Wednesday in Galesburg, Ill., focused on the economy.The address didn’t include any new proposals on the economy, and Republicans criticized Obama for giving an address that was more of the same. But Obama said the news media often praises his ideas."It’s interesting, in the run-up to this speech, a lot of reporters say that, well, Mr. President, these are all good ideas, but some of you’ve said before; some of them sound great,
A few stars visited the White House on Monday to chat about Obamacare, the AP reports: Obama stopped by a private White House meeting Monday with celebrities including singer Jennifer Hudson and actors Amy Poehler, Michael Cera and Kal Penn. The White House says the artists expressed interest in helping spread the word about the health insurance marketplaces opening Oct. 1.The White House says Obama told the artists they could help reach young uninsured Americans who will be vital to his signature law´s success. Insurers need healthy young customers to help offset the costs of older, sicker consumers.
To African-Americans, President Obama just gets it.Obama’s notably personal comments on Friday about the verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman, and on race in America, struck a chord. They vividly underlined the fact that, for the first time, the person in the Oval Office has lived an African-American experience.To black supporters, that is more important than Obama’s inability to narrow racial inequalities during his four and a half years in office,
Chris Matthews spoke for “all white people” today, and apologized for unspecified transgressions committed by them. “I’ll just tell you one thing,” the Hardball host told his two guests. “And I’m speaking now for all white people, but especially [the ones] who’ve tried to change the last 50 or 60 years. And a lot of them really tried to change, and I’m sorry for this stuff. That’s all I’m saying.” He was addressing former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele and Val Nicholas, vice president and creative director at NBC News. The
Today the output of our country’s tedious outrage machine relates to the above Rolling Stone cover about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (also spelled Jahar). It glamorizes him. It turns him . . . actually, there’s no point in summarizing the objections. Why not just skim Twitter for 1.5 seconds and find multiple representative samples:(snip)*Presumably the protesters would have a tabloid treatment in which Rolling Stone would place horns on Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Perhaps that would have made this nonsense go away. *This is good journalism, as the photo depicts the same Dzhokhar Tsarnaev that The Post and the New York Times
White House insiders say President Barack Obama is in “a funk” about what he sees as increasing stagnation and failures surrounding his second term and some worry that the President is becoming more distant and distracted. “He’s not the same Obama that came to the Oval Office after the 2008 elections,” a senior White House aided confided to friends in an email recently. “I’m worried.” Chicago Mayor and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel tells friends that the Presidency has changed his longtime friend Obama and many of those changes are “not good.”
Citing a potential al Qaeda attack, the State Department on Friday issued a worldwide travel alert and warned American citizens that the terrorist group may be plotting a strike in the Middle East, North Africa or elsewhere. “Current information suggests that al Qaeda and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August,” reads a portion of the alert, which lasts until the end of the month.
In warning about possible al Qaeda attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials may have provided too much detail about intercepted chatter and the source of the information, and that may make it more difficult to get such tips next time, former and current intelligence officials say.On Friday, the U.S. State Department issued a worldwide travel alert for Americans, citing an unspecified al Qaeda threat. The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”
Executive Director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns Mark Glaze gave some ambiguous and potentially dangerous self defense advice Friday on “Hardball.” Glaze, speaking in opposition to “Stand Your Ground” laws, said in a circumstance where someone “comes at you” with an axe handle one should attempt to either “talk,” “fight with your fists,” “run away,” or “deescalate the situation,” but not shoot the attacker: MARK GLAZE: Very often somebody will come at you. They might want to have a fistfight. They might come at you with an ax handle. CHRIS MATTHEWS: Would you consider the guy with the ax handle armed or not?
[Video] Rapper Jay Z appearing on HBO´s "Real Time" with Bill Maher says that the black community wants upward economic mobility rather than a stronger police presence. In a conversation with former Congressman Barney Frank about police tactics such as stop-and-frisk, Jay Z suggests the stagnant economy and wealth inequality could cause widespread social unrest: "The real problem is there´s no middle class, right? So the gap between the have and have-nots is getting wider and wider... It´s gonna be a problem that no amount of police can solve, because once you have that sort of oppression
Washington - President Barack Obama´s top national security advisers met at the White House on Saturday to discuss the potential threat of terrorist attacks that caused Washington and its allies to issue travel warnings and close embassies throughout the Middle East. The United States issued a worldwide travel alert on Friday (Snip) Obama is spending the weekend at the Camp David presidential retreat after playing golf earlier on Saturday. His birthday is Sunday. The White House said Obama had received regular briefings about the potential threat and U.S. preparedness measures all week.
You don´t have to be gay or even Russian to feel the wrath of the Russian government´s homophobia. You could go to jail if you are "pro-gay," whatever that means. And that´s under just one of a growing number of hate-infused bills becoming law at a time when, as it happens, Russia is preparing to host the world in the next Winter Olympics. The perverse anti-gay legislation is inflaming an atmosphere of persistent intimidation and at times deadly violence against Russian gays and lesbians. The question now is: What should the rest of the world do?
Goose Creek resident Nancy Mace officially announced her campaign to defeat U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham in the 2014 Republican Party primary. The first woman to graduate from the Citadel, Mace is a well-regarded up-and-comer in Palmetto State politics, counting at least one notable South Carolina Tea Party fave as an ally, state Sen. Tom Davis (R-Beaufort). However, if Mace truly hopes to secure the SCGOP nomination, she will need to answer questions about another comrade, Will Folks of FITSNews. As the former co-owner of FITSNews, Mace presided over the South Carolina political gossip site during its most infamous days;
A dart game that used President Obama´s face for target practice at a county fair in New York state is being dismantled today. Fairgoer Abigail Czapsky submitted photos of the booth at Otsego County Fair to HuffPost yesterday, which show President Obama´s face lined up alongside yellow stars in a dart game. According to Czapsky´s Facebook page, following yesterday´s HuffPost story the booth has now taken down the offensive targets. Czapsky says the Otsego County Fair Board called her to apologize about the booth and explain that it was being taken down. Not one individual on the fair board
Several skills that every kid once learned in school are going the way of the dodo in a hurry. Diagramming sentences is practically an extinct art, for example. Cursive handwriting and memorized multiplication tables look to be swiftly headed that way. Apparently, the next thing that kids will no longer need to learn is spelling and grammar. Sugata Mitra, a professor of educational technology at Newcastle University in northeast England, announced that traditional language rules are out of fashion, reports the Daily Mail. Kids don’t need to waste time on those things, see. State-of-the-art computers and mobile phones can make
An odd dark vertical line that was observed in the sky over Florida earlier this week has left meteorologists puzzled. The shadowy apparition was spotted and photographed by Mike Weight at Honeymoon Island State Park near Dunedin, Florida, Wednesday. Weight was walking on the beach at around 12.30pm. The day was bright and sunny, but there were thunderheads forming to the east. ‘I was looking North when I observed what looked like a ray of dark light coming down from a small cloud to the surface of the Gulf about a half-mile away,’ the 73-year-old man wrote in an email
Some of the earliest clues scientists had that Earth´s climate has changed over time were mismatches between the fossil record and a current ecosystem. How could this palm tree have grown in Wyoming? Why have fossils of the tropical breadfruit tree been found as far north as Greenland? These cold places must have once been warm and wet. The world is not as it has always been. And somehow, despite the tumult, species adapted, moving thousands of miles to habitats where they could survive. Won´t species today just do the same as temperatures rise in the years ahead?
