Conversations About Race in Kentucky

Let’s call it what it was in Kentucky and West Virginia. Race-based. Listen to the reporter in the middle of this video talk about how the educated Kentuckians have never once said it’s about race. Well, of course they haven’t! If they can rely on a different, more nuanced but still bogus line of reasoning like “lack of experience”, they don’t have to look at the real root of their dislike, right?

This wasn’t reported widely here in the US. Why was that? For fear of offending…who? Or was it fear of affirming?

I have more respect for the few folks who just admitted what it was, instead of hiding behind the “just don’t wanna” facade.

  1. Uh hello,

    Your “reporter” is from al Jazeera.

  2. Actually, the reporter is American. The video was played on Al Jazeera. Al Jazeera offers consistently more complete coverage of this election than any mainstream media outlet does.

  3. [url=]Real News Story[/url] on the same thing, with the addition of religious questions still an issue.

    Al Jazeera English is one of the best sources of unbiased world reporting, btw. Real News is non-profit and US grassroots if the propaganda instilled fears of Al Jazeera are too much to overcome.
