Sneaky Fox Co-opting Black Institute for Presidential Debate Despite Racist History

In response to the Congressional Black Congress Institute partnering with the Fox Network for a presidential debate, Color of Change, an online forum developed to strengthen Black America’s political voice, is challenging the CBCI to drop the network known for its racist agenda. Join these voices if you would like to stand up against hatred and the willingness of organizations to abandon their principles and dignity for a buck.

Here was my personal addition to Color of Change’s letter:

There is no fair and open debate on Fox News, which censors,insults and debases opinions of variation without actually addressing its content. The facts are often diminished to propagate myths about “others” outside the safe white middle class. Unfortunately, Fox largely represents the interests of white corporate elite not the middle class, but caters to–and in the process betrays–the middle and working class whites to effectively divide people across all ethnicities who would otherwise have much to gain politically, if not as moral human beings, from uniting against the wealthy capitalists. The arrogance, supposed “moral monopoly” of commentators on Fox and its institutionalized racism and classism to favor the wealthy does the public a grave disservice in search for truth, understanding and peace.
