Day after day it is astounding to see how the producers at Fox and Friends find ways to appeal to their bigoted, and sexist viewers. Saturday Night Live's sketch that accurately portrays the trio of trivia must be revamped this next season, as their selection of news-worthy stories is really scraping the bottom of the barrel. Today, Steve Doocy calls attention to Kisa Jackson, a black mother from Dallas, who made a video rant about the conduct of the black kids in the now infamous McKinney Texas pool party video.
Kisa doesn't see the controversy in blaming the black kids because, as she says in the video,
"The white kids weren't running, the black kids were."
I suppose that could be due to the open season the cops seem to have declared on unarmed black youth. She does acknowledge that fact, but blames the kids here, even with the out of control, weapons drawing-officer.
Doocy asks her why she felt she needed to make that video while sitting in her car in the parking lot at work. Jackson said,
"These kids were out of control,... the officer wasn't my concern, I was upset they didn't know how to conduct themselves with the authorities...There have been a lot of police killings and a lot of kids hurt..."
She admits the conduct of cops is a matter of life or death and these kids should know that the authorities are awfully trigger happy. But, in an effort to pander to those who have almost referred to these children as jungle animals, she blames, once again, black parents who are seemingly unaware of their kids' whereabouts and activities. This is completely wrong, as many of these kids were invited guests of the party host.
This woman wanted attention, and garnering unorthodox attention as the lone black person who blames the black children is the only way to notoriety. Any publicity is good publicity? Some people think so.
