    Let me ask you a question: What, in Jason Whitlock's OP ED, do you have a problem with? He's been a somewhat regular contributor on TCT, shares that he knows Tucker, and so on. He's disghusted with the NYT smear piece. I've read what he's shared and agree with him based on what he's written This, compared with the MSNBC's correspondent's apparent attempts to completely deride the show.

    You said that was your problem with article. I'm assuming that's because you disagree. Which would mean that you have other shows which you think are more racist.

    I'm just curious what those shows are...

    Does any show necessarily have to be racist?

    I see you won't answer my question, I expected no less.
    Whitlock used a whole bunch of words to not really say anything other than I'm black and I like Tucker, so how could he be racist.
    It's the old how can I be racist, I have black friends. You know that one well. But slightly reversed.

    He didn't dispute anything in the article. He just blathered on about who they didn't talk to. And why didn't they interview these people. I'm not surprised you enjoyed it. It says nothing at all but sounds like it does. It wasn't as much a rebuttal to the times as you seem to think it is. Just an opinion response by a conservative coming to his conservative friends defense.

    It doesn't HAVE to be. But when you know your base...

    YOu said a lot of words there that really said nothing at all. For one, Tucker is entirely against unabashed immigration. Seems to me the NYT thinks that's being racist.

    If you had actually read the article you would have learned that Tucker had previously worked for MSNBC. So not really a conflict. And CNN.

    Also if you had actually read the article you would have learned that Tucker had been a contributor to many media outlets.

    So according to this person's editorial Tucker shouldn't have ever commented on MSNBC or CNN because he previously worked for them.

    No, it was the unfactual denigrating of immigrants that was racist. It was the intentional misinformation that was racist.

    He was claiming that legal immigrants were shitting in the streets of a town near where he lived. But if you had read the article you would have known this.

    Oh, so since you read it you would have seen that 10 reporters contributed to the article. 10 reporters and the complaint is about 1, lolz.

    Just seems like, if you have no desire to actually discuss things, if nothing you read can change your mind on topics youre dead set on, no desire to have an actual back and forth on something, or debate a topic....then just post it on your Facebook feed. Or start a thread like sly did. A2M thoughts and musings. Then you can post your findings and we will know you have no real desire to discuss those topics. Just want to post to your feed and jam your head in the sand while pretending somewhere else you're victimized.

    So you are claiming there have never been racist shows on cable? Is that your claim?

    Its a kind of entertainment.

    You know how when you have a small child and you tease them with stuff like "Oh, I put the remote in the fridge, could you go get it?" and they go get it?

    and then come back mad because its not in there, and you then are like "oh wait, I meant the freezer, sorry"
