POLITICS BREEDS BITTER RACIAL STEREOTYPE

Submitted by Roldo on Wed, 12/02/2009 - 12:51.

The Call & Post has always been used as a political tool. It has a great history of standing up for blacks, especially when white newspapers didn’t give a shit about blacks.

 

That’s why it’s troubling to see a racist stereotype used to attack a black person in the weekly newspaper.

 

I’d suggest a good read and assessment has been written by blogger and writer Richard Andrews. He reminds us of George Forbes’s attack on Jeff Johnson some time ago. He called Johnson a “mulatto punk.”
