Our tribe doesn't care about black kids: Within our self-impressed blue tribe's world, cable news is all about nightly dreams of seeing The Others locked up.
Will Letitia James get Trump in New York? Will Fani Willis get him in Georgia? Can we get the Others locked up for their "forgeries / forged documents?"
Can we get those rookie cops locked up? They were in their fourth day on the job!
Our cable news has been devoted to such topics for quite a few years at this point. Brain-numbing pseudo-discussions go on and on, and then they resume the next night.
There are other topics you'll never see discussed on corporate cable. One such topic appears on the front page of today's New York Times, under the following headline:
How It Feels to Be an Asian Student in an Elite Public School
This is the ten millionth Times report about the demographics of New York City's "elite high schools." At present, those academically high-powered schools are full of Asian-American kids. So where are the blacks and Hispanics?
Why do so few black and Hispanic kids end up in those high-powered schools? You will never be asked to hear such topics discussed on CNN or MSNBC. Basically, black and Hispanic kids don't even exist in a world where we can entertain ourselves with nightly dreams about Locking Trump and The Others Up.
Given the fact that it was written by Michael Powell, today's report is surprisingly lazy. Meanwhile, we've shown you the data a million times about how far "behind" black and Hispanic kids are, on average—in New York City and in the nation—just by the end of fourth grade.
You'll never see any such thing discussed on "liberal" cable. Rachel is paid millions of dollars per year to never ever bore us with that. The other multimillionaire stars are all silent too.
Black kids simply don't exist within our tribe's cable news. This is who, and this is what, our self-impressed tribe really is.
We like to dream about locking Them up. Rachel sells us this car every night, and we come back the next night for more.
This is who, and this is what, our cable news stars really are. They're paid millions to play it this way. We aren't even allowed to know how many millions they're paid!
The interests of black kids don't exist in our world. Setting our posturing to the side, this is who we actually are.
"Forgery forgery forgery forged!" That's good solid "cable news" fun!
