One trend I noticed recently with FoxNews.com is just how often the n-word can be found in their comments. Not long ago, I found two stories where Trayvon Martin’s name appeared, although not directly tied to anything in that case. One was about the arrest of Alton Hayes III, who claimed that anger over Trayvon Martin was a motivation for attacking and robbing a 19 year-old white person. Hayes admits that race was a factor in his crime, and the article says he was charged with a hate crime.
The second story is about Terry Rawls, one of the participants in the beating of Matthew Owens - a story Fox News has been deliberately trying to turn into a race-case (against whites) despite evidence showing otherwise.
Since this post was drafted, the comments were closed. But not before getting screen caps.
Is there any other mainstream news website where you can find the n-word used so often?
The first 17 caps came from the Alton Hayes story. The next 12 were on the Rawls post.
By the way, there were also numerous other slurs, as well as calls for violence against the black community and its prominent names. Those were reported to the proper authorities. These are just the n-word comments found in a 15-minute perusal through the comments.
It just gets harder and harder to under-estimate these cretins.
Stupid, drunk and crazy ain’t pretty.
Some of these names, both the consistency and severity of these comments will make you physically ill, yet Fox News doesn’t seem to think they’re enough of a problem to block. Even though that would resolve a lot of the problem.
Except, of course, Cain and Thomas chose to be Republicons and CONservatives, and as all good people know, “bIQongtaHvIS nItlhejchugh targhmey; bIvemDI’ nItlhej ghIlab ghewmey” (for those of you who don’t understand tlhIngan Hol, the equivalent English phrase is “if you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas”).
We hate blacks more than we hate women, and that’s sayin’ something!
