Fifty years of integration and the widespread mistaken belief that integration ended the pre-integration racist practices of the police and press has allowed this unsolved race and social justice problem to persist. That has left the news media’s racist role continuing unknown, unchecked, and undeterred until now. In identifying this racist problem, the obvious solution is to introduce the kind of all-inclusive news media that has been missing that so many mistakenly assumed was already in place.
With integration, we gained spectacular advancements, collectively and individually, economically and politically. Blacks got jobs and careers few had imagined, political appointments and positions few had envisioned. 46.8 million African Americans currently have an annual buying power of $1.6 trillion, equivalent to the 12th largest nation in the world and growing. According to Forbes we have 7 black billionaires and close to two million African American millionaires (1.67 million). Plus we even had a black President. Yet the unsolved race and social justice problem persist with the integrated press and police continuing their little-known pre-integration racist practices. While we’re on this great economic gains trajectory, we’re fortunate to have this racist news media vulnerability and threat finally being identified, exposed, and now being addressed.
DOING GOOD DOESN’T MEAN WE CAN’T DO A WHOLE LOT BETTER
“INTEGRATION DELUSION” HAS FOOLED A WHOLE NATION
The Big Cover-Up video also showed classic examples of “integration delusion,” defined as mistakenly thinking that with integration the press and police ended their traditional racist practices. The video shows Colin Powel and Juan William, prominent black men assuring the American people on national television that the presence of minority police officers means no racist offense occurred in the Sgt. Crowley, Professor Gates, and President Obama affair. They said this against the backdrop of video footage showing black cops and reporters stumbling over each other to support the illegal racist arrest and cover-up of Sgt. Crowley. However, Stephen A Smith was the most adamant and vocal in denouncing professor Gates and implicitly exonerating the lying Sgt Crowley as exposed in his police report.
THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR KNOWLEDGE AND BEING INFORMED AND AWARE
Our intentions in identifying these people is not to embarrass or vilify but to show the extent of the problem. A redeeming feature of the video is that all parties have the opportunity to correct their unintended, self-defeating, race and social justice, mistakes. Colin Powell, Juan Williams, and Stephen A Smith are high-profile proud black men, who had no intentions of reinforcing the racist self-defeating misinformation as they publicly did. Colin Powel was a stand-up guy who famously acknowledged being misinformed about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction. No doubt, he would have corrected his Sgt. Crowley mistake had he been made aware of it, which we attempted to inform him in an email to him before he passed. On the other hand, this is a great opportunity
for Stephen A Smith this is not only the opportunity to learn and promote this major advancement but to also rectify his nationally televised misguided denouncement of Professor Gates.
SETTLING FOR 2ND CLASS STATUS
Whole industries and communities have been spawned and others have achieved tremendous economic gains and are now thriving despite this unsolved race and social justice problem, while others are directly benefiting from the problem. However, seeing the countless groups, individuals, organizations, and institutions that have made the solution of this unsolved race and social justice problem their objective but have never figured out this key news media root problem puts the magnitude of this break through solution being presented here in perspective.
A MAJOR ADVANCEMENT TO BE ACHEIVED THAT FEW IMAGINED BEING ACHIEVABLE
It’s remarkable that in 2022 there remains this major racist breakthroughs yet to be achieved. To finally learn that after fifty years of integration there is this missing news media accountability factor that has allowed the race and social justice problem to persists is transformative information. But then to add that there is this obvious solution that will address the problem and take us to a level of empowerment that makes us full participants in society is the ultimate game changer.
RAISING OUR STANDARDS OF ACCEPTANCE
Not all black folks find these revelations unacceptable. In fact, more than we would like to admit would urge us to not” rock the boat.” To which we hasten to remind them that “a rising tide lifts all boats.” Basically, we are putting in place what’s been missing, which is a 24-7 integrated all-inclusive national cable news television network and 24-7 on-line news magazine that introduces accountability where it’s been missing in race and police encounters. Having identified what’s missing, it’s our responsibility to put the appropriate solution in place. Up until now we have settled for less than what can be achieved because of our lack of awareness of what we have been without. We’re putting in place an all-inclusive integrated national news media operation that covers everything that the mainstream news media covers but that does not have a racist agenda to accommodate the police in race and police encounters and puts accountability where it has never been. A concept whose time has come.
