You don’t have to be a racist or Caucasian to engage in racist practices. Those in the integrated news media may be surprised to learn the key role they are playing wittingly or unwittingly in the unsolved race and social justice problem. “The Big Cover-Up” video is uniquely suited to reveal to Caucasians and black Americans their
In light of the recent discussions centered around the occupant in the White House and on the question of who’s a racist, this is certainly a subject worth exploring to see how it may be contributing to the persistence of this unsolved
We have a perfect example of racist behavior captured in both “The Big Cover-Up” video and the Chris Hayes “Handle” video in which the participants were probably unaware of their support of
It seems appropriate to share our understanding of the subject and even provide a means for those interested to determine if they are sympathetic to racist practices. We have the perfect “Racist Quotient” test. It works for both black and white journalists and reporters because they may be wittingly or unwittingly participating in racist practices right now. For blacks, it’s a “Stockholm Syndrome” test to determine to what degree they may be conditioned to accepting being second class marginalized citizens.
The “Racist Quotient” Test
Here’s how the test works. Watch “The Big Cover-Up” video. This is a private self-test. You get to determine your own basic reaction in your head and heart, which only you know. Are you repulsed by what you see? Do you want to take action? Are you indifferent? Do you see it as no big thing? The same questions are applicable to both black and white viewers of the video.
The video documents an incident involving race that happened during the first year of the Obama administration. You even get to reflect on how you responded to the incident back then and how you respond today. Finally, unlike back then if you feel the urge to address the problem exposed in the video, this time you have options.
A white associate shared the video with some of her black friends, not in the news media who assured her they had watched the video and were apparently unmoved. Any black person watching “The Big Cover-Up” video who comes away indifferent, obviously doesn’t share our perspective.
For African Americans to have our own all-inclusive national news media operation is beyond the imagination and even aspirations of more black folks than one would like to think. However, that’s the challenge before us, to show Americans in general and blacks, in particular, there is a whole level of unprecedented empowerment available to us that we have yet to achieve. This means we must educate as we empower and liberate. The point is people can be conditioned to accept affronts and abuse and second class marginalized status.
Launching this 24-7 all-inclusive national cable news television network and 24-7 on-line news magazine is the obvious solution. All-inclusive means we will finally provide the national news media operation that many mistakenly thought they were already getting from the integrated mainstream news media. The difference is we will include the interests and concerns of African Americans and police accountability in race and police encounters. All-inclusive will make us the most informative national news media organization, moving us from the sidelines to the forefront in the national news media arena.
THE CHALLENGE (We Have A Realistic Plan)
It begins with our minimum $500,000 GoFundMe campaign to produce the Pilot for this all-inclusive national cable news television network. Once produced, the Pilot will air nationally complete with paid for commercial spot showing that it is not only a major racial advancement but also a viable self-sustaining business concept.
