One Fox Nation host mocked Black parents who have been forced to talk to their children about what to do when approached by police. Now it seems hosts on Fox are fearful for their religious white boys.
After a series of shootings of African American children, parents began posting about being forced to have “the talk” with their kids. The “talk” had nothing to do with safe sex, rather it had to do with how not to get shot by a police officer. Phrases like “hands up, don’t shoot” became a frequently used phrase by young men begging for their lives.
That has now been twisted into mockery by those at Fox Nation, who think that the boys at Covington Catholic High School are more endangered.
“Maybe it’s time for white parents to sit down with their sons and have long talks about the dangers of being a pro-life, pro-Trump Christian in America,” said host Todd Starnes. “Or that they might be targeted and profiled for wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat, that they could be left bloodied and beaten in the streets. Maybe they should tell their sons, ‘Society will judge them by the color of their skin instead of the content of their character.”
The ways the boys behaved in Washington over the weekend was the character people seemed to take issue with. Outside of the boys making fun of the Native American tribal members, they were also caught on video harassing women. “It’s not rape if you like it,” one was caught on video shouting.
It’s unclear if this is the “character” that Sterns would like to be seen upheld.
