The folks at “Faux News” are at it again in this current display of gendered racism that is beyond unacceptable. In a story about Michelle Obama, they referred to her as “Obama’s Baby Mama.” This is real racism and not just “poor judgment” as one VP at Fox said in a statement. Ironically enough, this is the same network that gave us Tony Snow, who rather famously (or, infamously) said that “racism doesn’t exist anymore.” Well, it certainly seems to at Fox News. Pam Spaulding calls this one like it is when she writes:
It’s high time that Fox News just stop with the pussyfooting around with these games and run the more direct “nigger” on any Chyron running over video of the Obamas.
The anticipated mix of racism and sexism. The hint that Michelle and Barack are not legally married, that theirs is not a “real” family.
Really, someone should pull Fox News’ FCC license. This is unconscionable.
