Kevin Jackson, a Fox fave racial arsonist, reacted to a heartfelt explanation of the African American frustration, rage and fear behind the Charlotte, North Carolina protests with just the kind of “race pimping” he accused the other guest of doing.
On The Kelly File Wednesday night, regular guest Richard Fowler shared with the viewers how young African Americans feel about the police:
FOWLER: I want to be real with you tonight and I think some people in your audience might not want to hear this but here’s the truth: what the African American community – we’re tired of waiting, right? So we have to wait for the justice system to take its course, we have to wait for the investigation to happen. But all this time, another black male life is lost. I am a young, black male, same age as some of these same guys that have been killed and I worry for my own life. […]
This is a serious problem that we’ve really got to tackle. And at the beginning of the show, you talked about how all the shootings were within police policies. Well, maybe it’s time – just maybe, Megyn, that we take a look at these police policies and really understand what’s working and what’s not working. ‘Cause clearly, in Charlotte, we see it’s not working. In Baltimore, it’s not working. In Ferguson, it’s not working. In Miami, it’s not working. Every city in this country, we’re seeing an outcry from the black community. We’re tired of waiting. What’s unacceptable to the black community? Is that another black brother has been slayed by the hands of law enforcement. Something has got to be done here!
And how did “straight news anchor” Kelly respond? By peevishly “clarifying” that “That is where the ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ lie began,” and that white Officer Darren Wilson was cleared of wrongdoing for shooting and killing African American Michael Brown. But really, that was a nit-picking attempt to delegitimize and undercut the powerful, emotional case that Fowler was making.
Kelly quickly acknowledged – and then moved on to Brown’s bad behavior – the fact that the Justice Department had found systemic racism in the Ferguson police department's behavior.
“I was talking about policies and practices…” Fowler began.
“I understand, Richard,” Kelly snapped in a condescending and scolding tone. “But when you just referred to Ferguson, it’s important that the audience understand what you mean.”
Actually, it was plain as day that what Kelly really thought was important was undercutting and deflecting from his point, not getting the audience to understand it.
Meanwhile, Jackson could be heard sighing with disgust off camera. You may recall Jackson has made such comments as “We need a white, Republican mayor” of Baltimore and a “white, Republican president.” He also once said about police shootings, on The Kelly File:
"You’re not going to see Asians rioting over this when it happens to them because everybody realizes that mistakes can be made. But what’s happened is, we’ve got a situation now, set by the president, established on down the food chain with Eric Holder and probably now with Loretta Lynch that says, 'It’s free reign over the cops.'”
And it’s funny, but Kelly did not feel the same compulsion to make sure the audience understood what Jackson meant, the way she did with Fowler.
Nor did she interrupt and scold when Jackson made this disgusting statement:
JACKSON: First of all, I wish you’d had a cop here in the studio so he could blow my brains out while I was listening to Richard. What a bunch of nonsense. We actually have a city that’s got—that’s 40 percent higher in crime rate than the national average. Richard probably can’t tell you the number of people who were killed in that city over the last year, which, by the way was 62. He doesn’t tell you that 35 percent of the city is black, but they represent 67 percent of the homicides, and he wants to blame cops.
I’d ask a very simple question: Where were the cops when the all the other crimes were going on? Is this the only time that the Charlotte cops have had a problem in that city? Or have they had a problem for decades? It’s only when somebody gets shot that the race pimps come out and they start making an issue out of something. You got people down there partying because the left narrative is yet, again, being brought forward and they know it’s a lie. You look at all the statistics that support—you look at all the statistics of cops killing police. You look at all the statistics of police officers killing blacks and Richard knows he is being disingenuous.

And, to ensure that happens, President Drumpf is committed to taking guns away (from non-whites, that is):
Trump announces he’s coming for your guns. (Calm down, white people, not your guns!) By Jen Hayden
Thursday Sep 22, 2016
So, exactly who would be randomly stopped and frisked under a Trump administration? Not likely the average Fox and Friends viewer. Not the white men who love to defiantly walk around the local grocery store with weapons of war in open-carry protests. If New York City’s record is any indication, police nationwide would have an open invitation to stop-and-frisk black and Latino residents at will.
The question is, will those liberty-loving, ride or die Second Amendment advocates step up and reject Donald Trump and his unconstitutional vision of modern policing?
I must say — as an African American, this is a GOOD thing: think of it — with AA’s no longer allowed to have guns, there will no longer be the usual police justified shooting of (unarmed) people of color merely because the police “thought they had a gun”, or “it looked as though they were reaching for a gun”; from now on, when police see AA’s, they’ll intrinsically KNOW they’re unarmed, and therefore no threat.
Of course, that may not stop police from using OTHER justifications for shooting unarmed persons of color — “he was running, possibly from a robbery”, “she refused to obey commands”, “he matched the description of a rape/robbery/insert crime here suspect”, etc. — but,hey . . . baby steps, right? ;)
Under Hillary’s, we read “pneumonia can be cured”.
Under Donald, we read “Stupidity cannot”.
Wasn’t there an incident a few months ago where the guy was reaching for his carry permit after telling the cop that he was licensed to carry? DIYD/DIYD (damned if you do/damned if you don’t). And some very stupid white folks wonder why some black communities don’t seem to trust their local police.
PS: Lol, mj.
It’s early for Christmas wishes but I wish for a modern comment editor to replace this total p.o.s. ;^)
Yep, the report pretty much exonerated Officer Wilson involved in the shooting. What Megyn isn’t saying is the other, broader DOJ report found widespread, systemic racism in the Ferguson police department explaining how race relations were so rotten they reached a boiling point.
America has allowed police carte blanche targeting of blacks and the resulting disproportionate abuse to fester to a tipping point and people have simply had enough. So we get reactions like Ferguson, Baltimore, and here.
The problem for the #BlackLivesMatter and similar movements is nerves are on such edge they erupt into protest as an immediate reaction before any facts are in. So when the evidence comes in supporting the police, Fox shills like Megyn can pounce it’s all the blacks’ fault.
What Fox News isn’t considering is if the protesters waited and waited and waited and waited for months for the police to report all the facts and even longer for law and order grand juries to give cops an overwhelming benefit of the doubt and almost always let them off, as Fowler points out, others die. Plus, as Fox wants to happen, passions die.
Unfortunately, these protests are turning nasty. I watched CNN live last night where a reporter was violently knocked down by a protester. Another CNN reporter was apparently threatened by a protester and challenged him if he was going to hit him. It was reported a person was killed last night in Charlotte at the demonstration though the circumstances were murky at the time.
All this feeds Fox News’ narrative blacks are wild and dangerous. Suburban and rural whites listen to Fox’s vomit and only become more convinced to fear the black man and line up to vote for a crank like Trump promising a return of an un-Constitutional stop and frisk policy targeting blacks.
Yep, stop and frisk, generally harass, crack heads, even shoot and kill. As long as it’s blacks being targeted so conservative whites living many miles from the social issues at the root feel safe as they lay their heads on their pillows at night, there’re okay with it.
The desire to have one’s own brains blown out, merely to avoid listening to someone making a logical point, is the surest indication that you have none . . .
