Colbert: Fox News Can't Tell Black People Apart

Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by hermit, Aug 5, 2010.

  1. Stephen Colbert said last night that he thinks it was an "innocent mistake" that Greta Van Susteren used footage of Shirley Sherrod instead of Maxine Waters the other day on her Fox News show. "It could have happened to anyone...whose producers can't tell black people apart."

    Colbert also pointed out that though Fox News has the highest ratings in cable news, only 1.38% of their viewers are black. He had his people break down who those viewers are, and found that "45% are trapped in the waiting room of a Jiffy Lube, 7% are white people who just enjoy watching Fox News in blackface, 25% said Glenn Beck's name three times in the mirror and his show appeared, and the remaining 23% is Juan Williams."

  2. "7% are white people who just enjoy watching Fox News in blackface" :D :D

    "45% are trapped in the waiting room of a Jiffy Lube,"

    lol
     
  5. It even happens in the hood. Black people shooting each other in a case of mistaken identity. Even black people can't tell each other apart.
     
  6. For some reason it's okay to be racially derogatory towards caucasians... For some reason the PC god doesn't want to protect them... If similar things were said about blacks then people would be grabbing their torches and pitchforks
     
  7. MSNBC calls black people carrying guns white people who are looking to do harm to Obama.

    What did Colbert have to say about that? Nothing.
     
  8. Because Colbert satires O'Reilly. Have you not got the schick yet? Jeebus!
