Can CNN Sink Any Lower?

As if CNN hasn't shamed itself enough already in this whole O'Reilly/Media Matters mess, today they allowed another race-baiter to go on the air twice and refer to Juan Wiliams, who was on the air with O'Reilly when the conversation in question took place, as a "Happy Negro."

The cowardly CNN anchors didn't even challenge his remarks.

Nice. This guys name is Boyce Watkins, so make sure not to take him seriously the next time he pops up on the air.

Also check out "Media Research Center" in the "Links" section of this blog, for more on how this story is playing out.

I work for Dr. Watkins. He has a response video to O'Reilly (Bill spent his entire show talking about Dr. Watkins) on Youtube at this link:

Dr. Watkins feels that individuals like Juan should embrace personal responsibility by teaching white America to take responsibility for their role in the creation of racial inequality. Dr. Watkins' books "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about College" and "What if George Bush were a Black Man?" feature messages of self-reliance among people of color and the value of education. The difference is that he is also courageous enough to confront ALL of America for it's role in the creation of inequality, rather than simply taking the cowardly disposition of placing 100% of the blame on the black community.

White Supremacy is when you think that whites are doing better than blacks because blacks engage in some sort of cultural inferiority. That is the message that O'Reilly transmits, and it's the one that Williams Supports. Hence, Williams sits in the role of the "Happy Negro" on the porch, smiling when his boss wants more ice tea. It would take a man to confront O'Reilly on his racism, and Williams is not that man.

To put it bluntly Mr. Couch, Dr. Watkins is Part Of The Problem.

You can't go around saying that people are "Happy Negro's" just because they don't tow the line when it comes to the standard black talking points of eternal victimization.

I don't think that anyone is going to take your boss very serously any more and they shouldn't.

What he said was just as bad as Imus .

In fact, it was worse,
