|CNN guest insults a Black woman on live television.|
On CNN's New Day, Symone Sanders former presser for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) during his failed presidential bid squared off with Sean "Softball" Hannity's old buddy Ken Cuccinelli over the deadly terrorist attack in Charlottsville.
The two were debating over the tepid response from Donald J. Trump. In the middle of the conversation, Sanders brought up the white extremists inside the White House.
Stephen K. Bannon, Steven Miller and Sebastian Gorka are considered White extremists. These guys are Trump's right ear. The rest of them are his deaf ear. Now these three are facing calls for cannon firing. Their ties to Breitbart and the alt-right are out in the open.
The alt-right embraces the Bannon, Miller and Gorka. These individuals are enablers of white extremism.
The very mention of these guys got Cuccinelli riled up. So briefly in between interrupting each other, the Cuccinelli said to Chris Cuomo that Sanders needs to shut up.
"Can I finish, Symone? Will you just shut up for a minute and let me finish? God bless America."
And all hell went loose.
This is an example of how White people treat women of color. They show no interest in professional Black women who speak volume to issues that matter in our country.
Cuccinelli did later apologize to Sanders after he was confronted by The Washington Post.
Symone Sanders isnt the only one. She won't be the last one.
You know that White men love to disrespect Black women in power.
The way they've treated Michelle Obama.
They way they've treated Beyonce.
The way they've treated Oprah Winfrey.
Now the way they've treated political pundits and lawmakers.
The disrespect towards Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-OH) is notable. When they speak out about injustice, these folks believe they're "angry."
We can add New York Times reporter Helene Cooper and MSNBC host Joy Reid to list. This twerp Rick Lowry was insulting and condescending towards them on GOP Sundays.
White men think they can shut a woman up because she's laying some cold-hard facts on them is the reason to why Donald J. Trump's allies being associates of the White extremist movement.
Peep this out.
