I just can't help but read the "news" these days and ask where are the adults.

I frequently ask that myself when it comes to Fox News :p

 

But seriously, what a silly article.

Fox News is crap, to be sure, but I have no idea why lefties are so obsessed with its crappiness. All the major news agencies are equally crap, and I'd say some are more crap than Fox (NBC). But I noticed leftist orthodoxy teaches its followers to hate news and pundits more than the right does, which focuses less on the news and more on leaders.

Speaking as someone who hates the left and the right (but the left slightly more).

How is this a Fox News (or any news) thing?  The headline and quotes from the organizers seem accurate enough to me.

Well, I don't think there's really much to say about the topic. You could complain about identity politics, but that's beating a dead horse at this point (for Nightly).

Honestly, it doesn't surprise me. In my experience, it's wealthy, predominantly white communities that most want to be seen as being pro-minority, as long as they don't actually move in. There's a church in a nearby wealthy, 99.8% white (legit census numbers) town that has a mural of Mexican Jesus sitting on a rainbow. But they have faced multiple lawsuits for pulling people over for driving while black. I think they finally, within the past five years, got the cops to stop saying "You don't look like you're from around here." And that was after a lawsuit filed by a successful attorney who was visiting his daughter at the expensive university in town. They wouldn't know what to do with a Mexican who wasn't doing manual labor for them, but they have the multicultural mural, so hooray!

It's because they had it scheduled for Martin Luther King weekend, and probably didn't want to seem insensitive in overlooking any potential marches or rallies. That said, I understand why the original date, but I think International Women's Day in March is a better date for said rally anyway.

Sheesh, that's 1:500.  Depending on the size of the town you could probably invite the entire minority population to a quiet dinner party.  Were they really pulling over the same 10 people and acting surprised each time?

I used to work with a guy who was black and it was a Hardee's on I-75 outside of Acworth GA. On his break he'd go sit with the rednecks and tell them Jesus was a black dude. Just so he could see their reaction.

There's a major highway that connects a good sized town to Columbus, so a lot of non-resident traffic on the highway.
