NYU Black Renaissance Noire Fall 2013 - Page 66

Zucker fired Roland Martin, one of a handful of black correspondents with some bite, who, instead of following orders like the majority of blacks who appear on the tube, scared of losing their jobs as the ranks of black reporters and correspondents are depleted, spoke with an independent voice. Typical of the other type is Don Lemon who was concerned about whether the pathetic low life thug George Zimmerman was getting enough love. Wondering whether he was “frustrated” or “stressed.” During the trial, Jeff Zucker and those whom Roland Martin called “White Executives” at cnn made cnn part of the Zimmerman defense team. Since Gloria Steinem said that the plight of white middle class women was worse than that of minority men, he sicced Ashleigh Banfield on Trayvon Martin, who couldn’t be accused of racism because racism has been obliterated because we have a black president. She said that Zimmerman’s big fucking lies amounted to “itsy bitsy inconsistencies.” Like most corporate feminists, Couric was selective upon whom she placed the blame for sexual harassment like Lemon is selective about whom to blame for homophobia. He’s the guy who charged the black community collectively with homophobia. Don Lemon is a perfect fit for Zucker’s Zimmerman Network, where blacks are seen lopsidedly as perps as cnn runs security camera footage that record the dumb and sorry crimes of the desperate, but fail to mention those committed by their corporate partners like General Electric, whose flaking business is causing earthquakes and fouling the water supply. G.E. is jeopardizing the safety of millions with the nuclear plants. They built the reactors that overheated at the Fukushima nuclear plant9 that caused a Tsunami and earthquake that cost 18,000 li ?\??\?HY?X??\??[??H?\????[???????]H[YK??H?Y]??????]???YH?????B??H????[???\?H[?H[?????H\????H[??[Y\???[Z]Y??HH???][????YH??X????H?]????[?^HZ\???[\?Y\???Y??H?K????????X?\? ^HZYH?[\?H??Y[\??H\??\?\??K???H\??Y?Y[?????HX\?[??&\?8?'?]H^X?]]?\??'H\???H?\?H?]X?[?H???\??&\?\???[??Z]?[???[YH?H?X??X[????]\?Y[?X\?]XZ?H??[?[ZK??X??\?[Y[?HX]??
