Skip to comments.Fox News Won't Fire Black Racist Commentator (Jehmu Greene)
Posted on 05/07/2012 2:28:06 PM PDT by kristinn
Fox News contributor Jehmu Greene, a black feminist, says on her Twitter page that love can build a bridge. But racism, not love, was on display last Thursday when she called conservative Tucker Carlson a bow-tying white boy.
Greene, a Democratic Party operative who was the national director of Project Vote, a group with close ties to the corrupt ACORN organization, has not offered a public apology. There is no indication that her financial relationship with Fox News has suffered as a result of the racial outburst.
Jehmu apologized to Tucker by phone after the segment, Irena Briganti, Group Senior Vice President at FOX News Channel & FOX Business Network, tells Accuracy in Media.
This is apparently the end of the matter for Fox News.
Robert Lifson of American Thinker pointed out that if Tucker Carlson had ever called Louis Farrakhan a bow-tying black boy, he would be out of a job.
Whats more, Greene said on the air that she had not done anything wrong.
Hey, hey, hey, reacted Carlson, at the slur. You cant, wait. Whoa, whoa, whoa You can use name calling all you like, but youre ignoring the truth.
I didnt call you a name, replied Greene.
So calling somebody a white boy is acceptable to Greene.
As a Fox News Contributor, Greene is on the Fox News payroll and is paid to be a regular commentator on different programs.
AIM had asked Fox News spokesperson Irena Briganti if Greene would be fired for making the racist remark. That is when Briganti informed us about the private apology, which is apparently supposed to suffice.

Sounds like a good reason to boycot the worst news organization around. As if I needed a reason. Fox News has jumped so many sharks that I stopped counting.
I voted a long time ago, with no more viewing of Fox. As a matter of fact I do not get my news from TV at all, except at the local level.
Tucker Carlson shoud have replied “Are you talking to me, colored girl?” Turnabout is fair play.
I turn off Fox (and any other station) when they put jerks like this bag, Sharpton, Jackson, etc. No need to give these idiots airtime nor Fox ratings.
I'll buy a ticket, front row pls.
Pretty sure she wasn’t only targeting Mr. Carlson with “folks like you, voters like you, bow-tying white boys.”
On another Fox News show Jehmu Greene wore an orange dress and sat in the “leg chair”. She looked like the Great Pumkin.
She has the biggest butt I have ever seen on tv.
NO! NO! NO!
KEEP HER ON
WE NEED TO SEE THE “OTHER SIDE”
I'm just about as sick of Fox News as I am the others these days. Hypocrites.
This is one of those times; that "I know you are; but what am I" does not work. Too bad for that; and as well; the fact that this racist; still has a job at Fox News.
Ihave never seen the so called “lady” butt it is hard to believe that she is wider than moosechelle.
Of course she gets a pass, for obvious reasons. But if a white commentator had made a similar remark, he/she would be gone.
Jehmu? Isn’t that the name of the Killer Whale at Sea World?
Has anyone ever seen an African-American fired from any affirmative action job ever? The rules and the work procedures are only for the white employees.
Fox is required to hire a certain percent minorities. They can't be fired no matter what.
The only good shows on Fox news are on Fox News Business and they are Stossel and Lou Dobbs...
I wonder how long they will last....
My brother-in-law’s father described the transport of African slaves to the West as “America’s curse.” Wow, was he ever right.
Fox 'Fair and Balanced'? My ass! That's just a catchy jingo for the stupid sheep of the herd.
Your comment covers race and the media in this chart which would also apply to, as Rush would say, 'Magic Negroes.'
It's appalling that this cleaned up, spiffed up, dirty radical lib operative is welcome at FNC .. and as I told them, scads are leaving Fox in droves. Et ut, Prince Al Waleed?
So I am guessing she wouldn’t have a problem if someone called her a ‘nappy headed ho’?
Or would that be the pot calling the kettle...
Or is Fox in BO’s pocket because of the wiretapping scandal overseas? Sure would seem so.
Jemuh never strays from the democrat/liberal talking points no matter what the facts are. She’s like a broken record.
Good for Fox!! It is time that speech be allowed to be Free Speech. It is time that stupid comments by one or more persons be allowed - because it is good for our society to see what real people think and say in their unguarded moments - without a teleprompter. If someone say’s “look at that little _____ run.” an entire career should not be runined. Letting people speak is the whole point of our constitution.

I’ve solved most of my BP problems by not watching anything but old movies on TV.
I get my news from FR—and there’s not much I’ve missed out on.......
“On another Fox News show Jehmu Greene wore an orange dress and sat in the leg chair. She looked like the Great Pumkin.”
So I guess you could say she’s Jehmoooo!
She has always been an obnoxious, ignorant person who just keeps talking and talking over everyone else. They have tried to clean her up and make her look more presentable, but she is still an arrogant liberal with no manners.
She cannot help it.
That’s all I can say.Censored.
That’s one scary lookin’ example of humanity.
Carlson could have had great sport with her and her fake private apology.
“And I apologize about what I said about you.”
“What did you say about me!?!”
“Oh, it’s just best that I don’t say. I’m sure the people I said that to won’t tell anyone else about it.”
“What did you call me???”
“Oh, I’m sure nobody would believe that about you. So it’s best that I not say. In any event, I accept your apology and I hope you accept mine. Have a nice day. ‘Bye-eee.”
Well, of course love can build a bridge! Unless you a dumb white cracka-—then just get outta my face.
Same here. News breaks here before most other sources. And since I get such good use from FR, I don't mind paying for it.
According to Wikipedia Greene is the daughter of Liberian immigrants. Is that legal or illegal?
LOL!! Good one!
She is not a black feminist. She is other things, many of them.
“I voted a long time ago, with no more viewing of Fox. As a matter of fact I do not get my news from TV at all, except at the local level.”
I hear you; the local news is important in terms of how to get around/traffic reports, weather, crime, etc.. Fox can just treat you to Al Sharton being kowtowed to and addressed as “reverend”. Fox is a center-left version of far-left CNN/MSNBC.
Exactly. The enemy must be shown for all its insanity and destructive hate, front and center. Same goes for that lying crapweasel Allen Colmes. Leftism should continued to be displayed to be mocked and ridiculed for the failure that it is.
I know of whole departments loaded with Hispanics to skirt these rules (successfully); no chip on their shoulder, happy to have a job. The same holds true for gubmint work (and the same thing is happening); the NAACP lawsuits alleging racism in testing is because the police/fire departments can meet a racial quota - it just doesn’t include any blacks.
Here I'll fix it for you.
Jehmu? Isnt that the name of the Black Killer Whale at Sea World? Now, everything's in back in order.
to #8: Well. Jehmu Greene is no Aunt Jemima, but she might be a “Jehmu Greene Melon”, Green on the outside, red on the inside.
Where do they find these racist idiots? “Idiots R Us” (aka the Democrat Party)?
I’ve got to tell you, this and the Zimmerman incident, along with a couple of other things tells me that there is an underlying hatred of whites and rage towards whites in the community of people of color.
It is becoming more and more evident.
Maybe what she said was not really racist or bigoted but it was certainly nasty and mean spirited.
That’s why I don’t watch her and others like her and that’s why she should be shown the door.
For her to just blurt out a comment like that. . . she probably has used similar comments in another venue.
Helps to explain why I no longer watch Fox News. Hell, I haven’t watched TV news in years.
I prefer to listen to black men like that who would call Jehmu a buck-dancing savage.
