Internet gangs up on Tucker Carlson after guest suggests black woman should ‘walk a mile’ in a white woman’s shoes

Published

Amid all the days’ insane headlines, a guest on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show Wednesday still managed to shock.

Describing how some people “want to see racism everywhere,” gay conservative pundit Chadwick Moore provided an anecdote to illustrate his point.

“I was having a conversation with a young, upper middle class black woman, and she was talking about how badly she gets treated on the street here in New York, and I said to her, ‘what if you lived for one day as a white woman and you were treated the exact same way and people were just as rude to you? What then?'” Moore said.

Unsurprisingly, Twitter revolted.

“Tucker Carlson guest literally says he told a black woman who experienced racism that she should walk a mile in a white womans shoes before passing judgement,” Media Matters’ researcher Andrew Lawrence tweeted with the video. “I just can’t.”

Others shared Lawrence’s shock.

“@Chadwick_Moore said this idiocy with a smile,” CNN commentator and former South Carolina state legislator Bakari Sellers tweeted.

“Quite reasonably, you’ll assume that his comments can’t be worse than the chyron, but then you’ll listen to them,” The Black List founder Franklin Leonard tweeted, referencing the chyron that touted news of “Major websites attacking white people.”

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."

New biographer claims she knows how Kim Jong Un will die

Published

on

A new biography about Kim Jong Un by Anna Fifield is uncovering many of the unique moments in the childhood of the North Korean dictator. But one piece that isn't included in the book is her prediction for how the leader will die.

In a CNN interview with Brian Todd, Fifield explained that Kim's chain-smoking, drinking and consumption of rich and fatty foods would likely be his undoing. She doesn't anticipate he'll ever have a coup d'etat, but he could probably have a heart attack.

Other shocking observations she made include that Kim's parents had to bring in children so that he would have someone to play with him, effectively meaning his "friends" were paid for.

Black Republican: Cops ‘treat their dogs better than they treat us’

Published

Black Republican political commentator Shermichael Singleton was part of a panel discussing the Phoenix police department that violently arrested the parents of a little girl who walked out of a dollar store with a doll.

The incident occurred months ago, but only now the footage is being released by police, revealing the way the family was treated.

Democratic strategist Joel Payne seemed appalled at the police in the video and the mark that likely left on the children who experienced it.

"I think about that young man talking about his child, and this is their first interaction with police," he said, noting Father's Day. "And that is the life, that's the life lesson that that child is being taught is that in that moment, that police officer was trying to hurt her and to hurt her parents. That's unacceptable."
