In a recent appearance on FOX News Channel, syndicated columnist Cal Thomas complained that black women on television are "usually angry about something."
It’s beyond belief that a talking-head on a cable network that labeled Michelle Obama a "baby mama" wants to know why black women are "angry?"
Since Thomas brought it up, black women are "angry" about:
- an unemployment rate that is twice that of white women
- a mortgage industry that targeted black women with high-interest subprime loans while two U.S. senators were given cut-rate VIP loans
- a consumer credit industry that redlines black neighborhoods
- a prison industrial complex that criminalizes black males
Thomas doesn't understand the impact of racial disparities. Nor is he culturally competent to distinguish passion from anger.
So with all due respect Mister
Charlie Thomas, STFU.
