How Come Marc Lamont Hill can call John Mayer a “White boy” and Not Be Called a Racist for It?
David Horowitz's NewsRealblog ^ | David Swindle

Posted on 02/12/2010 6:25:10 AM PST by Michael van der Galien

Joe Klein had a great post today calling out Marc Lamont Hill on last night’s O’Reilly Factor. Those new to NewsReal Blog might be unfamiliar with our history of confronting Hill for his extreme views and for Fox and O’Reilly for putting him on as a foreign policy expert when he specializes in hip-hop culture. NewsReal Blog and Accuracy in Media were successful in getting Hill fired as a paid contributor at Fox. Never the less, he’s still featured occasionally as an unpaid commentator.

One of NRB’s primary gripes with Hill is that he’s dishonest. When on Fox News he presents himself as a reasonable progressive somewhere in the neighborhood of the leftwing of the Democratic Party. However in real life — and particularly on the web — Hill is a Ward Churchill-style radical who possesses deeply divisive views on race.

We can see this in this most recent blog post at his site. (Warning, R-rated language at the actual post.) Responding to a comment musician John Mayer made in a Playboy interview in which he confessed — in rather crass terms — to not being attracted to black women, Hill wrote,

One of the affordances of white privilege is being able to say things that cause hurt to people of color, and then appeal to your “heart” (or hip-hop collaborations) as proof you’re not racist. Again, I’m not calling Mayer a racist –I don’t know him– but his comments were certainly racially irresponsible. Next time, John, just say “Everybody has their preferences. Black women haven’t been mine.” Then, no harm, no foul.

As far as Black people go, I worry that our outrage is also connected to our constant need for White approval.

I thought Hill was given his hippity hop papers a month ago? Did he play the race card with FOX?

Many Blacks, like Hill, will never believe that most Whites aren’t evil Black people haters; no matter what advantages Blacks are given simply because of the color of their skin. No affirmative action, no racial quotas will ever be enough and Whites needs to realize this fact. Hill operates from this vantage point.

He does, and that tells you all you need to know about O’Reilly.

Blacks have always gotten away with calling a white man, “boy”. But a white person better never do that.

If Mayer were to say he isn’t attracted to women with green eyes, would that also be “irresponsible”?

Note Mayer did not say he would not hire a black woman or rent an apt to her. He’s talking about physical attraction—hardly what I consider in the realm of “racism,” (whatever that is).

Mayer needs to take Frank Zappa’s advice and “Shut up and play yer guitar.”

O'Reilly loves this guy.

O'Reilly also often featured that hag Medea Benjamin of CodePink while she was relentlessly attacking President Bush and the war efforts, delivering money to the opposition in Iraq, leading the picketing of recruiting offices and of Walter Reed hospital by leftists, promoting that evil witch Cindy Sheehan, disrupting congressional meetings and lately, bundling money for Obama. To think O'Reilly is the most-viewed cable news commentator makes one sad for our country.

when he mentions that people who find black women desireable need more “self love”, isn’t he demeaning black women as well? unless one needs to be self-hating to like black women, and he think’s that is a good thing?

The Extreme Makeover of Fox News: Analyst Marc Lamont Hill [far left radical]
Accuracy In Media - AIM Column ^ | October 2, 2009 | Cliff Kincaid

Posted on Saturday, October 03, 2009 9:59:20 PM by ETL

Who would plaster his Twitter page with police mug shot photos of convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur? Fox News contributor Marc Lamont Hill did. At least until David Horowitz and Accuracy in Media took notice and wrote about it. Now the page features photos of boxing great Muhammad Ali. Hill's MySpace page is also gone.

There are other changes as well. The tributes to Shakur and black racist Khallid Muhammad, known as "America's Black Hitler," have disappeared from his web pages. The articles were saved, however, and can be found here.

Why would any sane white person want to be in the same room as Lamont, when his education and behavior advocates slicing your throat..

..and people at Fox chuckle at his witticisms and listen attentively to his perspective? *whew*

From the New York Times, August 24, 2003

"they [the Weather Underground] employed revolutionary jargon, advocated armed struggle and black liberation and began bombing buildings, taking responsibility for at least 20 attacks. Estimates of their number ranged at times from several dozen to several hundred."

He is not paid for his weekly appearances on BOR's show or his infrequent appearances on Red Eye?

I can’t decide if BOR loves him so much or that he just loves spitting in the face of his audience to let them know who’s boss. I was wondering last night why he continues having this buffoon on that he knows none of his viewers like. In my case, when MLH comes on, I simply change channels and don’t go back to Fox until BOR’s show is over.

I believe that even if African-American socioeconomic status was made subtantially better than that of whites through Affirmative Action and other measures, blacks would still resent it... and rightly so... because they would still realize at some level that they had arrived through the sufferance of white society.

The path to real independence for African-Americans does not lie on this course. Black America must stop defining itself in terms of White America if there is any progress to be made from here. The black professionals I know and respect seem to understand this.

Why is this any different than constantly having pundits like Al Sharpton on and asking his opinion on race? Or the head of the NAACP or the Black Caucus or pretending in general that most blacks aren’t racial? We are delusional in the country. As long as whites continue to play pretend they will have there ass handed to them and eventually lose this nation playing the one way race game.

Yes. Many Blacks already do have a higher socioeconomic status that most Whites. I feel badly for high achieving Blacks in some respects. There will always be a segment of Society that believes that they have arrived at that point due to the benefits of affirmative action, etc. In some way it's a no-win situation for them. I have never thought that Blacks, as a race, have lesser intelligence or capabilities. I think most Whites think this way. I wish the high visibility Blacks would realize that fact.

I don’t get it either. You watch the show, suddenly Hill comes on again. Why? He doesn’t add anything to the debate; at all.

"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal".
--James (Jim) Cone,
African American Religious Thought: An Anthology (Paperback)
by Cornel West (Editor), Eddie S. Glaude Jr. (Editor)

SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"

WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.

HANNITY: But I'm a — reverend

WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?

Thank you, FRiend. Glad you find the info useful and important. Because very few prominent conservative commentators get into these sorts of vital details about what is going on here. Hannity, for example, only about once or twice referred to the Weather Underground as communist. And that was when he was reading a quote from Bill Ayers who openly admits it to this day. He just called them “domestic terrorists”. Never did he link them to the revolutionary communist “Black Liberation” movement that Obama’s mentor of 20+ years (Rev Wright) so strongly advocated in his bogus “church”. Limbaugh is just now starting to properly describe what is happening as a communist movement. For many years, he shyed away from using the ‘C’ word. Too bad he wasn’t more adequately doing this BEFORE the election. And too bad Glenn Beck didn’t have his FoxNews program back then.

It's just a hunch, but I think what happened to Joe McCarthy still hangs heavy in the air for these professional broadcasters. Once you name the top of the organization, the entire international movement and funding are brought to bear on an individual, his or her spouse and children -- as we have seen with every Republican official and candidate.

Have you read The Fabian Freeway? It's out of print and hard to get a hold of, but is an incredible documentation of the birth, growth and tentacles of the Socialist International movement.
