Abc12 promoting racism?

Post by Kincade3072 » Thu Jul 02, 2020 4:43 pm

I see abc12 is starting a new segment on Thursday about race. (Black lives matter segment) Don't all lives matter and not just black lives? Why would you just promote one race? Way to go channel 12

Black activists have been saying for decades that the racism against them is "systemic," and therefore white people cannot understand it, nor do they experience it. Society had agreed to a slight extent, but now the sentiment is much more widely accepted. So, there you go.

Why not an all black newscast? An all black channel?

Isn’t it time for whites to start feeling discriminated against?

Lispy Toldo sued ABC12 for treating black men better than her.

Guess this is more penance (look it up).

There a simple solution if you’re upset over the segment... watch another channel. If 12 wants to do segments on racism, good for them. I’m sure there’s an audience and enough stories to tell. If they want a lead on a story, they should do a story on systematic racism in broadcast ownership groups. Look at the lily-white board of directors at Sinclair Broadcast Group as exhibit A.

No sinklair your not getting my point, I'm saying it shouldn't just be about 1 race mattering more then another. In order for us to all come together stop promoting racism. Maybe you should go to work for abc12 as you can sympathize with thier way of doing things. As you dislike working at sinklair so much. Try working at abc12 and for Grey media, and you'll realize your problems are small with your station .

Black anthem at ball games, black authors only at book store, black only entertainment radio...sounds inclusive to me!

Kincade: I’m not missing your point, I’m dismissing it. Doing stories on race doesn’t put one race above another. It only points out some of the historical, systematic racism that persons of color face.

It’s really not that much different than doing a story on the wage gap and glass ceilings faced by working women. Or are you suggesting that a woman’s place is in the kitchen?

Helping level the playing field for everyone in our society, regardless of gender, race, disability, sexual orientation, etc. is about raising everyone up.

Yes!

Let's "level the playing field" by expecting less from blacks. Lowering test scores. Dismissing and excusing irresponsible and criminal behavior. Pandering (look it up, and it's not about pandas) to them. Hiring them and admitting them to college instead of white people even though they are severely under-qualified. Have the government support them their entire lives, like their great grandparents, grandparents, parents, their children, and a thousand generations.

Promoting the LGBTQIA+ agenda to all children, have them dress up like them, pretend to be them, pretend they are in a class of their own and create laws to protect that class, march in parades, dedicate a month to them, and do it all in the guise (look it up) of "equality."

I actually agree on this with lovin, who knew he actually makes a very valid point.

Why not have a white entertainment network also?I have a black friend and he asked me what I thought about black lives matter, I simply said media is making it even worse. And he says all lives should matter not just black lives. Smart guy

When you start out with “I have a black friend”, you clearly don’t get it.

Having a black friend is much different than actually living as a person of color.

As I said, if you dislike 12’s effort, change the channel. Here at 25-66, we just give lip service to diversity. You’ll fit right in.

Ok sinklair, since you know everything what should I call my friend who is black? A person of color, or an African American friend? Please I value your insight. Lmao I'm sure your fellow coworkers at Pierson Rd really value your opinion.
