NPR fires Jaun Williams

NPR fires analyst over remarks about Muslims - Entertainment - Television - TODAYshow.com

Quote:
NPR has fired veteran analyst Juan Williams over remarks he made about Muslims on the Fox News Channel program, "The O’Reilly Factor."
Quote:
On Monday, Williams said he concurred with O’Reilly about the threats faced by the United States.

He added, "Look, Bill, I'm not a bigot. You know the kind of books I've written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous."

No way, no how, is this an example of Political Correctness.

I'm not taking a sucker bet, he spends a lot of time there now and fills in for O'riely. I have heard him fill in for a few different conservate talk show hosts. Juan might be about one of the real centrists out there, if that breed actually exists and no Rick you aren't one.

Like you would know one.......... when you saw them.

A Centrist to you Brad, is anyone who only believes 99.5% of what you believe.

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

Re: NPR fires Jaun Williams

I wonder how Juan would have felt about a statement such as

""Look, Bill, I'm not a bigot. You know the kind of books I've written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I walk down the street, I got to tell you, if I see black people who are in gangsta garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as gangstas, I get worried. I get nervous."

Long sigh.

We've been over this more than a few times.

When it comes right down to it though, I don't really care.

If labeling keeps your brain from getting easily confused (and that resultant scratchy feeling)..........call me anything you want.

Not trying to pigeonhole myself with a particular partisan political group...........frees me up to choose that which makes the most sense to me.
