There some uncomfortable truths we have to deal with today. One of them is that there are bigots and racists in all shades of skin color. It's just a fact. Whether you listen to David Duke or Louis Farrakhan. Their rhetoric is hateful. Thankfully, David Duke has been placed on the sideline of irrelevance by most; sadly Farrakahn (who loves to talk about himself in the third person) has seen a resurgence. That is a topic for another day.
Another hard truth is that most members of the mainstream media (MSM) are immersed in a different kind of bigotry. With few exceptions the profession is a cesspool which explains the exodus from the New York Times from writers and editors who still had a conscience and just could not take it anymore. These people, far from conservatives, could not work day-to-day in a world of such hate.
This brings us to the recent theme of "defund the police" or "abolish the police" and screeds of the same ilk. It's ignorant. It's also a message which, on the streets, does not resemble the one you see and read in the MSM outlets.
