Oh Fox News…you never cease to disappoint us with your blatant racism.
During a segment on the Black Lives Matter movement early Monday, Fox and Friends host Elisabeth Hasselbeck suggested the group of activists be categorized as a hate group.
The comments came as conservative African-American writer Kevin Jackson discussed Saturday’s demonstration at the Minnesota State Fair and the Friday shooting of a white Texas sheriff’s deputy.
“Kevin, why has the Black Lives Matter movement not been classified yet as a hate group?” Hasselbeck asked Jackson during the segment. “How much more has to go in this direction before someone actually labels it as such?”
“Well they should do it, but unfortunately it’s being financed by the leftists. And ironically it’s people that have nothing, really no concern at all about Black lives…The sad part about it is the impact that it’s gonna have on the Black community and that it takes away so much thought of what really is the problem in the Black community, which is whole Black families.”
No Kevin, the problem is the systematic racism that keeps Black families from being whole through a number of unjust practices protected by laws.
