I'm surprised it took Fox News this long to find a racist scumbag like Fuhrman to explain to frightened Fox viewers why unarmed African-American kid Michael Brown deserved to take six bullets from a cop who is cowering somewhere out of the state of Missouri.

But they did. Evidently the KKK was booked elsewhere, perhaps on the streets of Ferguson, so Fuhrman showed up to blame the whole mess on Brown. In Fuhrman's eyes -- because he is all-seeing and magically teleported himself back to noon Central time on August 9th -- clearly Mike Brown was the aggressor and deserved to be filled with a bunch of lead.

Because black dude. Seriously. The rest is all bull. For Mark Fuhrman, it's all about Michael Brown's skin color.

For readers unfamiliar with the execrable ex-cop, here's a little history lesson. From the transcripts of OJ Simpson's criminal trial, after Fuhrman testified under oath that he had never, ever used the word n*gger.

The "Fuhrman Tapes" contain forty examples of the use of the term "n*gger" to refer to black persons in a racially disparaging context. These references were not casual slips of the tongue, but a consistent pattern that recurs throughout the transcripts. In only one case - item no 12 - was Fuhrman assuming the role of a fictional character when the word "n*gger" was used.

1. ( ...speaking of changes in composition of L.A.P.D.).

"That we've got females ...and dumb n*ggers, and all your Mexicans that can't even write the name of the car they drive."

(McKinny Transcript No. 1, p.11.)

2.( ...speaking of the physical risks to officers).

"If I'm wrestling around with some ___ n*gger, and he gets me in my back, and he gets his hands on my gun. It's over."

(McKinny Transcript No. 1, p. 12)

3.( ...describing arrest of a suspect).

"She was afraid. He was a big n*gger, and she was afraid."

(McKinny Transcript No. 1, p. 20)

4.(...explaining arrest of a suspect in Westwood).

"He was a n*gger. He didn't belong. Two questions. And you are going: Where do you live? 22nd and Western. Where were you going? Well, I'm going to Fatburger. Where's Fatburger. He didn't know where Fatburger was? Get in the car."

So screw Fox News and their bookers for putting this racist pig on the air to smear Mike Brown. It's shameful, and they're shameless.

Next time Megyn should ask him to show her his hood.
