I have for the last couple of years been posting at the Huff. I started posting as the Zimmerman case became prevalent, and then only because of what was blatant one sided reporting. Since then I have seen the pattern of the posters, their tactics and the racism of the editorial.
So much so that it virtually becomes impossible to comment unless you have the same one sided opinion as the Huff…. and of course follow the ‘Party Line..’ The Zimmerman and Dunn cases get particular attention these days……
Take for instance this post by Marian Wright Edelman
Take the first couple of lines…..
The headlines in the case were sadly familiar. An angry adult armed with a gun used it to shoot and kill an unarmed black teenager he thought seemed “bad”—this time, because the teenager and his friends were sitting in a car listening to music the grownup didn’t like. In this outrageous Florida case, a middle-aged white man, Michael Dunn, was convicted of three counts of attempted murder and one count of shooting a gun into an occupied car.
Although in the Case of Zimmerman and Dunn, both were investigated by the FBI no issues of race were connected to either case. Yet notice the keys words designed to make you think it was about race. If we modify the sentence above to read correctly, what do we get?

The tone becomes very different when you take out those couple of all important keywords that may demonstrate the point of racism.
Jurors agreed he faced no threat after he was annoyed by loud music — coming from a car he had deliberately chosen to park next to — and then started an argument, pulled a gun on the car’s black teens, and fired three shots at the young men inside the car as they tried to drive away from him.
In the first instance the wording implied that Dunn was seeking out the kids, the black kids, and is misleading.
What actuallly happened is that :-
The bass from loud music playing in the teens’ SUV started to shake both cars and bother Dunn, who asked for it to be turned down.Front seat passenger Tevin Thompson initially complied, but then Jordan Davis objected and Thompson turned the music back up. Davis and Dunn continued to talk to each other, with Davis cursing and becoming enraged while Dunn remained relatively calm. Meanwhile, Stornes returned to the vehicle.

My point of course is not the actual event, it is the presentation of the event by this author, and the acceptance by the Huffington post that this piece reflects what happened in this case. That is a very racial piece of innuendo that is chronically one sided and does not present a factual account of the case.
The piece by Marian Wright Edelmanis who is President of the Children’s Defense Fund and its Action Council whose Leave No Child Behind® mission is to ensure every child a Healthy Start, a Head Start, a Fair Start, a Safe Start, and a Moral Start in life and successful passage to adulthood with the help of caring families and communities.That is of course if we are talking about Black children.
What of course which makes matters worst is that if you post on the Huffington post anything contradictory to this biased version of events then your post will be deleted.
The deletion of posts is another interesting feature of the now gone global post where individuals can be moderators of posts, and indeed the actual moderators appear to restrict posts on the basis of whether or not those posts follow the main editorial.
In the Zimmerman case the BGI trolls were out in force, for many hours day after day, putting down and getting posts deleted if they supported Zimmerman in any way at all. To get a post deleted from the huff, just flag it, and that in itself is not the problem, and in itself will not get the post deleted, but as soon as the trolls get together collectively and complain about a piece in sufficient numbers, the piece will be automatically deleted.
It is not the Post that has deleted the piece of course, and cannot be blamed for that, but they are aware that this occurred, and allow it to happen by the regular black trolls of the BGI, (which they can be blamed for) so promoting their agenda and suppressing any other opinions that are not in keeping with the racial agitation , and false narrative promoted simply by forced omission of balanced comment.
Black College Instructor Claims She Was Punished For Discussing Racism
This is another example of biased one sided reporting…… if you actually check out the article: HERE
What we actually find is that three white students at an English class wanted to know the relevance of structural racism to the class and why it was recurring.
The problem here is of course not the topic but the attitude of the teacher, (who has been involved in similar incidents) pointing these students to the complaints department, instead of legitimizing the significance in the class of this particular piece.
Another piece on the same day is :- Here
To Wake Up Dangerous: on Thugs and the Criminalization of Black People
Well now we have the use of words again selectively inserted or omitted to get the correct interpretation……
“There is a war on Black people in America; it has been raging for a while. Since slavery, Black people have been colored as savage, unclean, sexually and socially deviant and criminal. This war is fought in courtrooms which feed our prison system, in our media which feeds archaic stereotypes and in our schools which feed long term socioeconomic inequality. The war has become so complex and intersected that Black America is constantly fighting for survival across all classes and identities.”
This piece is about the word ‘THUG’ and the manner its being used……. and cites several examples of the so called misuse of the word.
‘Consider America’s favorite “thug,” Richard Sherman’ states the article where Sherman behaved bad enough to be deemed a thug by the media…. and the article goes on to …….
“As we learned from the recent acquittal of Michael Dunn, killing black people will never receive justice or retribution. Jordan Davis, who would have turned nineteen years old this past Sunday, was gunned down in a gas station for refusing to turn down his music when Dunn requested. Davis, with three friends, was unarmed. A day of teenagers hanging out ended in death and injury. Black boys on the town became “thugs.” The violence that sits in this word is how it works to make black life irreverent as so expertly put by Ta-Nehisi Coates. The mistrial that followed only further reveals the lack of value on Black life and how racial epithets like “thug” and “nigger” are tools of dehumanization. We have seen it with Emmitt Till, Trayvon Martin and Renisha McBride. Even in death, though, Black people are made commodity.”
This misguided post (which was published as being authentic by the Post) implies Dunn was acquitted…. he was acquitted of 1st degree murder only…. to give a retrial. It gives no mention of the lad turning the music UP! (which is a thuggish gesture) and yet we see the BGI rack up and collate several examples such as Till, (which was an abysmal issue) and put it side by side with Trayvon Martin (beating a gues head into concrete not thuggish??) and Mc Bride, who appeared on a guys doorstep drunk and he shot her accidentally.
That author says “Even in death, though, Black people are made commodity.”
Try the Trayvon Martin foundation and the patented names that make it illegal to use this name in advertising unless you are paying royalties……. Blacks are commodity , simply ask Ben Kruidbos, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton who all live very well indeed on selling any black name…….
These are just some of the examples of the Huffingtons racial and ongoing bias against whites……… Racist…… well YOU judge……
