When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

I was asked by a friend to view and comment regarding the first two videos below.
Watch for yourself.


Chris Rock - How not to get your ass kicked by the police.

I added this clip because its Chris Rock not in character, telling the truths about being black.

Ann Coulter pwned by Bill Maher and Chris Rock

Whether the first two videos do truly reflect the black community is not for me to judge. My problem is racism, hating and discrimination because ones skin tone doesn't match yours. My own race has despicable folk in it, white trash, welfare taking, methamphetamine making, murdering bone thugs as well.

The issue is not about bone thugs, black or white, its about stopping the slavery,1863 mentality! To suggest that any one race is above another, is disgusting at best. By far, racism is one of the worst evils that this world has to offer.

Racism can be defined as the hatred of one person by another -- or the belief that another person is less than human -- because of skin color, language, customs, place of birth or any factor that supposedly reveals the basic nature of that person. It has influenced wars, slavery, the formation of nations, and legal codes.

Often white American's whom aren't racists [sic] tell me, "Get over it and move on" - which is the most ludicrous of positions or platforms to stand upon! Racism is not some tragic event to get over; it's the ongoing tragedy of cumulative experiences that shape how one sees the world. Moreover, stereotypical imagery affects all who see it, not just the lampooned race. The negative images of blacks, whether old black-face minstrel actors shucking with joy over a watermelon rind or today's portrayals as criminal, promiscuous, and foolishly materialistic, are an equal opportunity influencer -- everyone is impacted by their repeated viewing.

A very close African American friend once told me:
"Stereotypes are not the sovereign territory of bigots, of which the rest of us can pretend don't exist. We all know that loud car stereos, baggy clothes, ethnic names, and watermelon have never discriminated against anyone, but a black person with any of those things calls to mind stereotypical imagery that can be detrimental to their careers, well-being, dreams, and even their lives. Unless history becomes a blank slate and the social construct of race is dismantled, we can never just forget and move on."

There is my answer WK.
