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.

FERGUSON, Mo. - Michael Brown Jr. was on the verge of starting college, eager to launch himself into the adult world. Instead, on Monday he´ll be mourned at his funeral, more than two weeks after his fatal shooting by a white police officer- an act that ignited days of violent protests and reawakened racial tensions that still linger in the nation. Brown, who was unarmed when he was killed, became an instant symbol of racial injustice as protesters flooded into the streets after his death. Civil rights leaders said the shooting in this predominantly black St. Louis suburb revived long

In his remarks on the murder of James Foley, the American journalist decapitated by the terrorists of ISIS, President Obama condemned Foley’s killers, appropriately, as a “cancer” on the Middle East and the world. But he also found room for the most Obama-ish of condemnations: “One thing we can all agree on,” he insisted, is that the would-be caliphate’s murderous vision has “no place in the 21st century.” The idea that America’s foes and rivals are not merely morally but chronologically deficient, confused time travelers who need to turn their DeLorean around, has long been a staple of this administration’s

Both have struggled with sagging approval ratings and run-ins with conservatives. “It’s a wonderful night,” Crist declared after accepting a concession call from Rich.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, part of the Department of Transportation, published last week an "advanced notice of proposed rulemaking" on "vehicle-to-vehicle communications." What NHTSA is proposing could begin a transformation in the American transportation system that makes our lives better and freer — or gives government more power over where we go and when. In announcing its proposed rulemaking, NHTSA is stressing its intention to protect the "privacy" of American drivers.

Previously, the ASA’s membership surveys only allowed three choices of gender: “male,” “female” and “prefer not to answer.” Now, as reported at Inside Higher Ed, members will have no fewer than seven options for their gender choice, with the added ability to select “all that apply.” The added options include “transgender male/transgender man,” “transgender female/transgender woman,” “genderqueer/gender non-conforming,” or another “preferred identity” of their choice not explicitly named. “Genderqueer” is defined by the Gender
