NYU Black Renaissance Noire Fall 2013 - Page 67

Jeff Zucker didn’t begin the profiling of blacks at cnn. They first came under criticism from fair when they issued false reports of looting and mayhem in New Orleans. The chief exaggerator then was Jeff Koinage, who later was disgraced after he was found to have staged a news event in Nigeria.10 CNN was also criticized by fair for entering into a business relationship with the Tea Party Express11, one of the media’s inventions, whose leader had called the president a Muslim. But cnn is heading in an even more racist direction under Zucker. His answer to the falling ratings of cnn which was almost tanked had it not been for the OJ trial is to join the multibillion dollar black boogeyman industry, no matter the consequences for blacks in everyday life in a country where the majority of people get their information from television. In the president’s speech he again referred to black disfunction, on a day when The New York Times finally, finally! ran a story about the heroin epidemic occurring in the white communities of New England. After the speech white commentators praised him especially for the black dysfunction parts. Typical was an msnbc panel, which followed the speech. Four white men and Toure, white men who can shop without being stalked. While Streicher was hanged at Nuremberg for his using the media to stir up the passions of Germans against the Jews and radio stations in Europe and Africa have been shut down for promoting ethnic hatred, Zucker, who does the same will get rich. As the cnn executives told Rick Sanchez who, like Martin, was fired, “race sells.” Endnotes 1 Alice Walker, The Same River Twice Pocket Books, New York,1997 2 John Toland, Adolf Hitler: The De?nitive Biography, Pg.392,1991 3 Interview with Lou Gossett, Konch magazine,Fall,2010 4 http://www.sfgate.com/default/article/Calif-prisonssterilized-women-without-approval-4 664732.php 5 http://mije.org/richardprince/dark-skinned-malereport-highlights-errors#Boston 6 http://hellobeautiful.com/2640264/boston-bombers-brownface-the-week-magazine/ 7 http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?
