“Attacking Kanye West for his color is despicable,” declares Robert, in conversation with Danielle about CNN’s reactions to his recent appearance at the White House. “When it comes to CNN, it’s all racism, all the time,” affirms Danielle.
Once motivated by racism, a blatant denial of reality becomes a necessity. Sure enough, that is exactly what CNN’s news commentaries (among others) have demonstrated.
Worse, CNN panelists Bakari Sellers, Tara Setmayer and Don Lemon shamelessly displayed their racist prejudice as they chastised West for being an example of “what happens when Negroes don’t read,” and of being “the token Negro of the Trump administration,” and for “embarrassing himself… in front of all these white people.”
Meanwhile, on MSNBC, viewers could watch racist Michael Eric Dyson (Georgetown University) describe West’s comments as “white supremacy by ventriloquism. A black mouth is moving but white racist ideals are flowing from Kanye West’s mouth.”
