    Media use of Race

    There are cable news channels that use the term racist every day. I would like a $100 for every-time they use this word. (they just can't stop)
    I would use the money to start a new news channel that has both sides views. We need people like Tim Russert again to bring back trust.

    Racism has been misused by the left so hard, the word is meaningless now.

    Racists focus on race.
    To be conservative, then, is to prefer the familiar to the unknown, to prefer the tried to the untried, fact to mystery, the actual to the possible, the limited to the unbounded, the near to the distant, the sufficient to the superabundant, the convenient to the perfect, present laughter to utopian bliss. ― Michael Joseph Oakeshott, Rationalism in Politics and Other Essays

    I turned on the t.v. at one point yesterday and there was a show on featuring a number of Black individuals being interviewed - just brief cuts from one to the other, as is commonly done in documentaries and theme features. The people being interviewed were not "man on the street" types, but in-studio guests. The subject of this segment was "Karens", and a man was talking about how, according to him, "some White people" were starting to recognize and call out Karens."But", he continued, "you're all Karens". Then, as a clip of a crying White woman standing beside a police officer was shown, a Black woman was talking about White people who align themselves with Black victims, and she said, "We see your tears...but they're not going to save you". Maybe I should have watched more of the show to get some context, but I couldn't stomach it.

    Do I get $100 because you used the word racist in this post?

    I disagree, the term still has meaning. Just not when Democrats use it.

    Is this a "cable news channel"? Can you read? And do we all get $100 for your use of the word?
