Fox Nation Thread About McDonald’s Black Website Generates More Racism And Ignorance

Reported by Priscilla - August 20, 2009 -

Fox Nation knows exactly what they’re doing and that is stoking the fires of racist division in this country. The notion of “one nation indivisible,” part of the pledge that Teabaggers and Town Hallers love, is not Fox Nation which is clearly a place that is white and Christian. But the irony is that they complain about how African Americans and Hispanics don’t want to be a part of the greater white society – a sentiment found in the Fox Nation comments about a black website that McDonald’s has started, “McDonald’s 365black.” In the bizarro world of Fox Nation, it’s whites who are being oppressed and segregated by the forces of ungrateful and lazy blacks who now have access to their own McDonald’s website. It’s time for a new march on Washington for the poor, disenfranchised whites of Fox Nation who are demanding integration, civil rights, and an end to special internet privileges for blacks only. They have a dream!!!!

White, “Right” America is feeling wronged (again) and nothing bothers them more than recognition of black culture. For them, any recognition of heritage and ethnicity is foreign and suspiciously seditious. There is an irony in that these are the same type of folks who supported segregation in the school, neighborhoods, and in marriage; yet, they are unwilling or too stupid to acknowledge that the history and experience of the African American society is unique. The celebration of African American culture is no different from the celebration of any ethnic heritage such as the various Italian American and Irish Americans groups (to name only two) who organize around a common heritage. Minorities, as do the other groups, network through these groups which often provide assistance and affirmation of those within the groups who have achieved success in the face of difficult and discriminatory circumstances. So McDonald’s had the audacity to set up a website and the whites of Fox Nation are outraged at this “discrimination.” Blacks are getting something that they don’t have and they are pissed. Some are never going back to McDonalds (which is probably a pretty good idea if the Town Hall crowds are any indication of body mass of your average white conservative). This is the mission statement for this website:

“At McDonald's®, we believe that African-American culture and achievement should be celebrated 365 days a year — not just during Black History Month. That's the idea behind 365Black.com. It's a place where you can learn more about education, employment, career advancement and entrepreneurship opportunities, and meet real people whose lives have been touched by McDonald's”

How discriminatory and “separatist.” (Hmmm, isn’t that what was said about Barack Obama’s Chicago Church). Poor white folks just can’t get a break!!! Almost 400 years of domination and it’s all going to shit. I’m clipping just two comment because of their breathtaking stupidty and ugliness. But here’s the question – Does Fox Nation really want minorities to be a part of their country as they certainly are spending a lot of time dissing them. White folks need to keep their eye on the prize and someday they’ll come out of bondage.
