TV Reporter Suspended After Rant
About Fatherless ‘Young Black Men’

Yahoo! TV, by Travis Reilly

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 7/16/2014 7:32:23 AM

News 12 reporter Sean Bergin made a controversial statement about “young black men” on TV Monday and now he has reportedly been suspended. The regional News 12 Networks, which serve New York and New Jersey, ran a story (above) about Jersey City Police Officer Melvin Santiago, who was fatally wounded in a shootout at a Jersey City Walgreens on Sunday. The network interviewed angry residents in the segment, many of whom weren´t very sensitive to the police officer´s death. “We were besieged, flooded with calls from police officers furious that we would give media coverage to the life of a

Comments:
Residents hate the cops more than they hate gangbangers who are murdering people.

Of course the reporter must be sent to a re-education camp. He´s white a noticed a black problem. I would disagree with him, though. I don´t think fatherlessness is the problem. I think both male and female ghetto/gang dwellers are just fine with the current state of affairs. They want their own society within the larger society that sends them free money every month. They cash the check and then run their neighborhoods as they see fit (which seems to be pretty violently and with lots of our laws broken). If every mom in those all-black neighborhoods trained their children from day one to be respectful and crave education, we wouldn´t have the current situation.

He is right, government dad started replacing real dad in the 60’s, it destroyed the Black family structure, and has gone downhill from there.

Every time you see one of those videos where 50-100 kids run in to a store grab everything they can and run out I would bet at least 90% are children of single parents.

Sometimes reality bites, too bad the reporter was suspended for stating the obvious. I refer you back to a July 8 piece here

http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=791371

Most telling was this excerpt

"Overall, according to Chicago magazine, the rate of nonfatal gunshot injury in Chicago was 46.5 per 100,000 from 2006 to 2012. But it was only 1.62 per 100,000 for whites. For blacks, it was 112.83 per 100,000. For black males, 239.77, and for black males aged 18-34, 599.65, or “a staggering one in 200.”

This kind of mindless, senseless, cowardly behavior by too many "young black men" who are too stupid to do anything useful with their wasted lives is all too common. They compensate for their uselessness by trying to prove they are men by shooting people and knocking up too many stupid "young black women" The POS "young black man" who murdered the cop is a prime example.

#2 is correct. The government has replaced daddy´s paycheck but not his love, guidance and discipline. Broken black families seem to be the norm and that´s tragic.

No doubt the reporter knew that speaking the truth was taboo but chose to do so anyway. You can´t have a first-world country with third-world citizens but that´s precisely what the government has created in every urban core. We all need to put a stop to what has destroyed the black family.

People can talk about race all day long, but this is a much bigger issueand has nothing to do with race--it is about the breakdown of the family.

It is about how the marriage commitment is no longer honored and how easy divorce, multiple partners, anything goes sorts of devaluing the family unit have taken its toll.

Political "correctness" has gotten so bad that even the telling of truthful facts has to be tainted. Nobody can ever be wrong, even when they make wrong choices which affect the lives of others in a bad way.

Progressives are solely responsible for the KlusterObama that is Palestine, and they have created a sick mini-me in black America.

Look at the similarities: both are wholly artificial groups entirely dependent on western taxpayer´s money, groomed with a hatred of functional society´s redeeming values, with ingrained high expectations and a terminal inability to function as competent adults. Another shared attribute is their hatred and chronic abuse of their own children.

And yes, many prog´s homes function the same, sick way.

FTA:

"It is News 12´s policy that reporters must be objective and not state personal opinions on-air,” said a spokesperson from News 12 in a statement to TheWrap."

So, it´s just a "personal opinion" that blacks are murdering more people and a higher percentage of white people, not a documented fact?

Yeah right. Take a drive down any Martin Luther King Boulevard any place in The United States if you´re so sure that it´s just a "personal opinion." Good luck. Call me when, or if you get back.

Irbil, Iraq: Islamic State militants have taken control of key cities in Iraq´s western province of Anbar and have begun to besiege one of the country´s largest military bases in a weeklong offensive that´s brought them within artillery range of Baghdad. IS, also known as ISIS, and its tribal allies have dominated Anbar since a surprise offensive last December, but this week´s push was particularly worrisome, because for the first time this year Islamist insurgents were reported to have become a major presence in Abu Ghraib, the last Anbar town on the outskirts of the capital.

WASHINGTON — As Obama administration officials sought to reassure Americans about efforts to contain Ebola in the wake of the first U.S. case, the military announced Friday that an additional 1,000 troops could be sent to West Africa to help fight the virus. And that number could go higher than that, said Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary. "I´m not going to put a floor or ceiling on this," Kirby said. President Obama initially ordered 3,000 troops to West Africa to help build hospitals, labs and treatment centers and provide logistics help. They are not going to treat Ebola

Ebola is spreading at the rate of five new cases an hour in Sierra Leone, according to figures released as world leaders and experts on disease control gathered in London to discuss the outbreak. The figures from Save the Children showed there were 765 new cases last week in the west African country alone, but only 327 hospital beds to treat infected patients. The charity said the “terrifying” rate of the spread of the disease was outstripping medical supplies and threatened a breakdown of Sierra Leone’s already fragile health system. The rate of spread of the deadly virus is projected

Liberian authorities said Thursday they will prosecute Dallas Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan when he returns home for allegedly lying on his airport departure screening questionnaire about whether he had had contact with a person infected with the virus. The latest Ebola outbreak has killed 3,338 in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Senegal and Nigeria, the World Health Organization says, prompting several West African countries to closely monitor travelers in and out of the country. On the form obtained by the Associated Press and confirmed by a Liberian government official, Duncan answered "no" to questions about whether he had cared for

An investigation was underway Tuesday after Iraqi military pilots mistakenly gave food, water and ammunition to enemy ISIS militants instead of their own soldiers, a senior security official and a brigadier told NBC News. The supplies were supposed to help besieged Iraqi army officers and soldiers who had been fighting Islamist extremists for a week in Saglawyah and the village of Al-Sijar in the country’s western province of Anbar. “Some pilots, instead of dropping these supplies over the area of the Iraqi army, threw it over the area that is controlled by ISIS fighters,” said Hakim Al-Zamili, a Sadrist lawmaker

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) made fresh advances in both Syria and Iraq on Monday, in defiance of the escalating United States-led bombing campaign against the jihadist group. For almost two months now, Tomahawk missiles and F22 Raptor jet fighters have bombarded the bases, strategic assets and front-line positions of Isil jihadists. But the group’s encroachment on Baghdad is steadily progressing and it is close to seizing a key Kurdish village on the Syria-Turkey border. Isil gunmen were reported to be six miles away from some points of Baghdad, and were holding their ground at a

WASHINGTON — The U.S. military is spending as much as $10 million per day on its new air war against Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, a relative pittance compared with the hundreds of millions it spent fighting every day in Afghanistan in 2013. The costs in Iraq and Syria will escalate substantially if, as President Obama and Pentagon officials have said, the new war lasts for years, according to military analysts. Flying and maintaining warplanes requires a substantial investment in weaponry and personnel. "If airstrikes in Syria and Iraq continue for as long as the president predicts, they

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300. [Snip] It’s hard to think of a more cack-handed, dangerously inept response than what transpired in Dallas. Consider what we now know: Thomas Eric Duncan, a 42-year-old Liberian citizen, had been

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
