If you’ve been around me as I try to promote my journalism brand, you’ll hear me say that black folks don’t want to hear about Trump. We want to hear about Tamika and Tyrone.
But now Trump done called black nations Shitholes.
Since I have a small history of using curse words on this site, I’m okay with sharing Trump’s word. But, I can’t, for the life of me, understand why the mainstream press, especially TV news, is spewing it out like that’s normal everyday language. (I don’t watch much TV news to know if the network news shows are saying it and I was told NPR refuses to use it).
I had to laugh when I heard a CNN host attempt to soften the language by substituting Trump’s word with ‘Asshole.’
When Trump slips up and calls black people Niggers in a meeting, will they be broadcasting that, too?
