CNN’s John King owes us an apology.
“Us” refers to people who have tan or darker skin.
Doesn’t he know we have far right wing whackos attacking Mexican-American / Latino / Hispanic people enough as it is?
Doesn’t he know that inaccurate reporting does more harm than good?! In the future I hope reporters and journalists will wait for “official” statements from the likes of the FBI who have a responsibility to the American people to give the FACTS.
There is a clear and present danger about some people who do not welcome brown immigrants or people of color, and comments like these hurt us.
Here are just some headline samples of what we had to endure and stand strongly firm against:
Yesterday, he made comments about the Boston Bomber(s) being a “dark-skinned” male without verifying that source through an FBI official.
Watch Video below:
I do not know the ethnic background of the Boston Bombing suspects released by the FBI, but it does appear that one of them looks pale skinned.
We do not care about the color of a person’s skin. We want the bomber(s) brought to justice regardless of his skin color.
We do care about the importance of not fanning the xenophobic flames that white nationalist organizations are in the business of doing.
Are you listening John King? You are hurting us and our push for LEGAL immigration reform for a clearly broken system.
Below is the FBI surveillance video of the 2 Boston Bombing suspects.
