right-wing media propagating left-wing stereotypes
will be honest, whenever Fox News talks about poverty, welfare, and
irresponsible fathers, it does appear to have a habit of highlighting
Black men and women.
Whether intentional or not, it would create a very harsh stereotype among its viewers.
While I am always willing to speak to the negative cycles of the
community I live in and am unafraid to call out the perversion of
culture I have seen among many Black
leaders, I will not pretend that I don’t notice some of the negative
sensationalizing and imaging from even some Conservative media.
All it does is fuel the accusations from the left and gives it life.
I don’t like the identity politics when discussing entitlements. The
entitlement culture and increasing disregard of the value of a two
parent home is not limited to any one ethnic group in America.
When only one group is talked about or represented in news coverage
about the entitlement culture , it just doesn’t convey an accurate or
truthful message, in my opinion.
