Martin Bashir insults Sarah Palin and he apologizes–Alec Baldwin’s gay slur gets him canned…is this a double standard?
MSNBC has canceled Alec Baldwin’s show. Baldwin alledgedly uttered a gay slur. Baldwin denies it but he was fired. Martin Bashir responded to Sarah Palin’s slave remarks by suggesting that she experience having someone defecate and urinate on her. Bashir has apologized, but he did not lose his job over his reckless remarks. In the headline I pose the question does MSNBC have a double standard? I know the answer they do. MSNBC is gay friendly and a number of their hosts are gay, but even though MSNBC is not a conservative haven does that mean the hosts can say anything and only have to offer an apology?

I was on Facebook and I came across a post that had a “quote” from Taye Diggs. The quote “let’s just say it is not a stereotype that black women are less submissive and harder to deal with. Being around them black women made me really miss my wife.” I was surprised and a little outraged, but I decided to do a little research before I jumped on the Dump Diggs Team. The quote is false he did not say this. A satirical website actually is the origin of the quote, but apparently not everyone got the memo. The fact that Diggs is married to a white woman probably made it easier to believe, but he didn’t say it. From an economical point of view this quote would be suicide. Black women married and single are going to see Best Man Holiday in droves. You don’t insult your core audience. This is still going strong but it is false but that does not seems to stop the story.
Have you heard about the Knockout Game? It is when some innocent person is walking down the street and some punk simply tries to knock you out with one swing. It should not be called a game because it is in fact a crime. Two people have been killed by this single blow insanity. Watch the clip and share your thoughts.

In a recent interview with the BBC, Oprah Winfrey made a racist comment about Barack Obama. Her statement was “There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African American,” she said. “There’s no question about that. And it’s the kind of thing no one ever says, but everybody’s thinking it.” Well Oprah, maybe you are the one who is thinking it yourself because in case you haven’t noticed, the world has moved on, but your own racist views remain. Pardon my candor but someone needs to say it! When Barack Obama is criticized on his performance, the subject is frequently shifted to racism in order distract from the issue at hand. And when one of the most famous women in the world, who happens to be black, purposely uses the race card in order to shift the blame of Barack Obama’s abysmal performance to racism, Obama avoids all accountability to the reality of his record. When a person of color’s (white, black, yellow or any color in between) poor performance is excused by way of calling anyone that exposes substandard, inept or poor performance a racist, the pitcher of the accusation uses the discrimination card to their advantage. And the one who yells “racist” is the real racist by shifting the issue away from the facts. One might turn the tables and pose the question to Ms. Winfrey: Ms. Winfrey, do you think that you have become one of the most famous women in the world because you are of the black race? I would venture that Ms. Winfrey would bristle with anger at the implication that she would not have achieved the same level of success if she were white. I would also wager that Ms. Winfrey would be sorely angry that all of her hard work to become the success she is today could be negated by the charge that all was awarded to her because she is of the African American race. Perhaps if Ms. Winfrey had failed to be successful in her endeavors, would she have given herself a pass and applied the same strategy she used for Barack Obama, making a similar comment like: there’s a level of disrespect for my industry that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because I’m an African American Woman. There’s no question about that. And it’s the kind of thing no one ever says, but everybody’s thinking it. The strategy of playing the race card in order to avoid addressing the facts has to end. The fact is our country is facing so many crisis’s that there is little hope that it can be turned around. The grownups have to face actualities by standing up against the polarization of truth in order to take care of business. And the very business at hand has and continues to affect every American black, white, yellow (and every color in between) man, woman and child. And please forgive my bunny trail here, but Barack Obama is half Caucasian American and half African American. I guess Oprah gets to choose which race card to play according to her intended outcome.
