White supremacy is insidious and pervasive everywhere, including at The New York Times and other liberal media.By Jordan Valerie In recent months, liberal news publications like The New York Times and The Washington Post have come under increased scrutiny for their coverage of race. From refusing to describe the president as racist to an obsession with racist “white working class” voters to Nazi-sympathizing profile pieces, the liberal media outlets that proclaim to be the saviors of truth in the era of “fake news” have proven woefully unprepared to cover the normalization of open white nationalism under Donald Trump. This glaring problem goes beyond a few poor editorial decisions; it speaks to the fundamental worldview of these liberal publications – white supremacy. “White supremacist” isn’t a term you usually hear ascribed to the prestigious New York Times. No, white supremacy is a descriptor reserved for Breitbart, and if we’re really brave, Fox News. The liberal New York Times? The same New York Times that Donald Trump wants to sue out of existence? There’s no way they can be described as white supremacist, let alone racist, right? Wrong. White supremacy isn’t limited to websites that feature a “Black Crime” section, like Breitbart. It’s not even limited to conservative publications whose editorial pages are littered with racist op-eds, like The Wall Street Journal and National Review. White supremacy is insidious and pervasive everywhere, including liberal media. Because white supremacy is not just neo-Nazis marching down the streets of Charlottesville, it is the belief that whiteness is supreme; that it must be treasured, cherished, defended, and centered at all times. And that ideology is absolutely reflected in liberal news media such as The New York Times and The Washington Post.
The solution is simple, stop giving white supremacists platforms. If you are not condemning white supremacy you are complicit in their ideas and values.By Rachael the Lord I remember attending a protest here in Baltimore after Trump was elected to be the 45th president of the United States. The scene could have been captured in a painting and mounted in a museum. Seas of white people flooded the cold pavement shouting protest songs, and “not my president” chants. Forget the Black lives that were robbed from the world under state sanctioned murders — this was more important because it affected them. The 69th Emmy Awards aired last Sunday to commemorate creatives in Hollywood for their accomplishments throughout the 2016-17 year. Stephen Colbert served as the host where the inescapable political commentary bombarded us in the introduction. Little did we know that Sean Spicer would glide across stage with his podium in similar fashion as Melissa McCarthy did in satirical skits on SNL. The Sean-Spicer-Is-Ok tour continued to roll when photos of the Emmys after party surfaced, showing host & actor, James Corden kissing Sean Spicer’s cheek. James attempted to do damage control after “reading a lot of harsh comments on Twitter”. When white liberals and moderates choose their privilege and comfort over our oppression, we have to question what their motives are. It is made evident that they do not care about anything that exists outside of their whiteness. Lena Waithe, Riz Ahmed and Donald Glover made history with their wins and yet they accepted their awards in the same theatre and on the same stage that Sean Spicer, a representative of white supremacy, was invited to share a joke or two.
In a recent Instagram post, singer/songwriter Cardi B. clapped back at the haters who leave comments under her posts about reality TV being the reason black people are murdered. She says, "Stop trying to blame reality TV to try to show what's
