CORE Nat’l Spokesman Condemns AlterNets Disrespect To Herman Cain

I had the distinct honor of introducing Herman Cain at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday, February 11, 2011. Following Mr. Cain’s speech, AlterNet, a self-described “progressive” Web site, published undoubtedly racist and inarguably offensive commentary dripping with incendiary name-calling and race-baiting of Herman Cain and black conservatives.

I call on AlterNet to immediately withdraw and issue a public condemnation of this vitriolic content appearing in their online publication. AlterNet’s mission statement boasts that it is a medium that transcends traditional journalism and is, instead, intended to “emphasize workable solutions to persistent social problems.” AlterNet also asserts that their content “underscores a commitment to fairness, equality and global stewardship,” and such virtues are in direct contradiction to the deplorable and irresponsible commentary they have allowed to be published.

It is particularly ironic after calls for civility in political discourse, by many in the media, that they would, through their inaction, encourage such socially reckless and racially insensitive material on a prominent leftwing publication.

At the heart of the fight for civil rights is the dignity of the rights of the individual. It is universally understood by all that to say “all blacks look alike” is racist. How sad it is that the mentality at AlterNet that led to this offensive commentary — “ALL BLACKS BETTER THINK ALIKE”– is not recognized to be as racist among Left-Wing racist cabals.

If AlterNet proclaims to champion civil rights, it will act immediately to rectify this situation and issue a public apology to those offended by their article.

Big Journalism joins Innis in demanding that Alternet condemn this piece and issue Herman Cain an apology.

Reporters vs. Conservative Black Leaders

Reporters vs. Conservative Black Leaders

This is the best ten minutes you are going to spend today … Wednesday, August fourth, a group of black tea party believing patriots made a trip to Washington D.C. for a National Black Conservative Press Conference (snippet below) hosted by the Tea Party Express to refute claims of racism made by the NAACP. Among these patriots were Lloyd Marcus (website, Facebook, Twitter) and North Carolina’s own Timothy Johnson (website, Facebook, Twitter).

Kevin Jackson (website, Facebook, Twitteris quoted as saying:

“Democrats have re-enslaved America,” said Kevin Jackson, president of the Black Conservative Coalition. He also stated that tea party activists are working towards building a more positive future for Americans that would reduce the size of the federal government and develop a contemporary version of the Emancipation Proclamation; the infamous document that President Abraham Lincoln signed that effectively put an end to slavery. “This time, even the white folks get freed,” said Jackson.

Ladies and Gentlemen, it CANNOT stop here. We need more people willing to speak up, and get involved. If you are not currently involved in a project making a conservative difference for our children’s futures, and aren’t sure where to start- leave a comment. We can help.
