Fox News Won't Fire Black Racist Commentator (Jehmu Greene)
Accuracy in Media ^ | Monday, May 7, 2012 | Cliff Kincaid

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.

What’s more, Greene said on the air that she had not done anything wrong.

“Hey, hey, hey,” reacted Carlson, at the slur. “You can’t, wait. Whoa, whoa, whoa…You can use name calling all you like, but you’re ignoring the truth.”

“I didn’t 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.

SNIP

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.

Good for Cliff Kincaid and Accuracy in Media for having the guts to call Fox out on this.

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.

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.

I agree. Keep her on and pray she keeps making ignorant comments like this. In fact, I hope her racist vitriol reaches epic proportions.

How about a PUBLIC apology to the viewers?! Remember, Don Imus had to make a public apology on air and a meeting with the people he offended while the other 'news' organization made a huge deal out of it! Double standard as usual!!!

I'm just about as sick of Fox News as I am the others these days. Hypocrites.

Misread the title and thought that FXN 'had' fired Je. . .hnu; and thought; 'way to go; do the right thing' only to ralize they did not.

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.

Of course she gets a pass, for obvious reasons. But if a white commentator had made a similar remark, he/she would be gone.

This is what affirmative action is, plain and simple. You set a hiring quota and then the African-Americans can never be fired no matter what they do.

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...

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.'

I sent a furious email to them, including Megyn, BOR, Hannity and a rep, blasting them over her and her disgusting bigotry .. and where's the public apology from her? Megyn at least was classy enough (scroll down) to publicly apologize after she realized what the JMOO actually said. What's wrong with Roger Ailes??

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...

black?

Fire her.

Or is Fox in BO’s pocket because of the wiretapping scandal overseas? Sure would seem so.

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.

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.

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.”

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.

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.

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.
