Stereotyping and Racism by the Yellow Press

I'll define just what is racism before we go on because the yellow journalists distort even a clear meaning on that. Racism is treating people different, making different rules for them, or holding double standards based on race is racism. Racism doesn't extend to culture, religion, or politics. Statements backed up by empirical proof and clear evidence can't be considered racism - facts are not racism.

Claiming all blacks for example are criminals is racism and an outright lie. Claiming blacks engage in disproportionate numbers in crime and violence is true and borne out by police statistics, etc. Go read the Chicago Tribune - "Nearly 100 people shot in Chicago in less than a week." (August 11, 2016) To quote, "100 people have been shot in Chicago in less than a week, pushing the number of shooting victims so far this year to more than 2,500 — about 800 more than this time last year, according to data kept by the Tribune...The number of shooting victims in Chicago stood at 2,514 Thursday morning. At this time last year, 1,725 people had been shot. The city has not seen this level of gun violence since the 1990s, a trend the Police Department has blamed on lax gun laws and feuding gang factions."

Here we have two lies inserted to cover up politically incorrect facts. Again they scrubbed the fact this is black and Hispanic violence hidden under terms such as "feuding gang factions" and lied about "lax gun control laws" when they have among the most draconian gun control laws in the country. In another article the Tribune admitted 75% of this violence was feral blacks and much of the rest is Hispanics. This is all over the country the same story - criminality and violence is directly proportional to the population of non-Asian minorities.

This is part of the irrational post-modernist racial thinking - whites are always guilty even when blacks kill blacks, whatever manufactured victim group and their members can't be held responsible for anything. Total irrational thinking and anyone that even brings up the gun in the hand of the black thug is attacked as racist because the thug is a victim too.

That is not racism because it's factual. Yellow journalists conflate anything they are uncomfortable with or don't like as racism to silence the discussion. Because of the lie about police targeting minority criminals as racism, this hinders the police from doing their jobs - the press is either deluded or trying to incite racial discord to influence the election are themselves committing murder - the Bristol Herald Courier is just as guilty by printing this garbage.

Dana Milbank is a self-hating white male (September 25, 2016 Bristol Herald Courier) that accuses millions of people he has never met as being racists. No doubt a few are as is he, but he perpetrates yellow journalism lies then accuses anyone questioning it of being racists. "Hillary Clinton wasn't necessarily wrong that half of Trumps supporters are racists and other deplorables..." He gets this from reading social media where both sides spew endless garbage.

Calling blacks the most violent population in America is factual not racist as he claims and is borne out by any urban newspaper including the Chicago Tribune. The entire article is a raving lunatic hit piece with zero proof pushing political lies. He tries to blame Trump and the police for black criminals and rioters in Charlotte led by Black Lives Matter, a racist, far left hate group the yellow press covers for.

Milbank claims Trump campaign's "coziness with white supremacists", yet where is the damn proof Mr. Milbank? "Anti-Semitic imagery"? Let's take a look at that lie.
