Is FOX Trying To Create A Racial Divide?

Reported by Deborah - October 22, 2005

Last night on Brit Hume's Grapevine there was a report on Kamou Kambon, a teacher of African Studies at North Carolina State University, who spoke at Howard University on 10/14. Dr. Kambon was one of many speakers at a pre-march event last week and his comments were extreme and very disturbing but that does not mean that the African-American community embraces his philosophy. However, the way the report was framed on Grapevine the viewer was given that impression. 10/21/05

Here is what Kambon said to the audience at the Howard U. event which was shown on C-Span.

'And then finally I want to say that we need one idea, and we're not thinking about a solution to the problem. ... And the one idea is: How are we going to exterminate white people, because that, in my estimation, is the only conclusion I have come to. We have to exterminate white people off the face of the planet to solve this problem. [A few in the audience applaud tepidly.] Now I don't care whether you clap or not, but I'm saying to you that we need to solve this problem, because they are going to kill us.'

According to the News Observer, Kambon's comments were not appreciated and were challenged on the spot by many of the civil rights leaders and organizers of the event. Of course this was not mentioned during the Grapevine report.

comment: The right has jumped on this opportunity to smear African-Americans especially since their approval rating for Bush is only 2%. Expect to hear a lot more about Kambon on FOX in the coming days.
