“The NAACP is deeply concerned with the lack of African American journalists in prime time news, both on cable and national news shows,” NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous said in the statement. “We have come to expect this from the likes of Fox News, but not other networks. While we understand that news is now a 24-hour cycle, most Americans get their news from the morning and evening prime time broadcasts.”
Jealous is so jealous. I guess he should hold CNN heels to the fire since he lack the spine to address the high frequency of single motherhood, crime (remember those flash mobs the media covers with political correctness), and drop-out rates for both high school and college among the black demographic in the U.S.
Seriously, how do black sustain the logic regarding special treatment in 2011? They demand that people of other races, especially Caucasians, cannot discriminate. Nevertheless, black will favor legislation that essentially does the same thing since Affirmative Action is by definition a political tool to discriminate legally so the unqualified slackers can cut the line.
Men like Mr. Jealous have positions in organizations like the NAACP only because black people continue to buy into the belief that they are forever victims requiring some form of unearned compensation. Times have changed and people like Jealous are the new oppressors by the very fact that they promote a victim/entitlement mentality that promotes dependency and hatred. The NAACP is irrelevant now, they just haven’t figured it out yet.
