Racist SAE Fraternity Video Commentay By Larry Wilmore , David Pakman & Sam Seder

The Nightly Show - Racist Fraternity Video

Larry Wilmore March 12, 2015. Outrage and some bitter comedy as this sort of racist behaviour is unacceptable and yet some people such as those at Fox News and MSNBC's morning Joe as we see think its not that serious . And it was unacceptable 50 years ago and is still unacceptable.
It is disturbing that this occurred while others were taking time to mark the 50th anniversary of the march on Selma sad, indeed!

and also check out one of my favourites The David Pakman Show's take on racist frat brothers :

and for more outrage let's watch Sam Seder at The Majority Report another favourite of mine rip apart MSNBC's Morning Joe's stupidity , ignorance while making excuses for White Privilege . Racism and Hate Speech are not acceptable. When these frat boys and Morning Joe gang talk about lynching as if its no big deal it shows America is far from being over racism.

SAE Racist Chant: Jon Stewart Lambasts Morning Joe, Fox for Deflective Claims About Racism

Jon Stewart Lambasts Morning Joe, Fox for Deflective Claims About Racism After OU Frat

Published on 11 Mar 2015
On Wednesday night, Jon Stewart took on the story of the expulsion of two University of Oklahoma students over a racist chant that gained national attention and caused the OU chapter of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity to be shut down.

In particular, Stewart said, it is troubling that the incident coincided with last weekend’s 50th anniversary celebration in Selma, Alabama. He quickly went after the Morning Joe crew for their suggestion that rap music was to blame for the racist chant (which co-host Mika Brzezinski later clarified). Stewart said the students weren’t performing a rap song, but were instead singing a fraternity song “featuring a word that pre-dates rap.”

He then showed various Fox News personalities denying that racism is still prevalent in American society — a similar claim Rachel Maddow mocked Megyn Kelly for. Stewart contrasted those comments with the Department of Justice’s Ferguson report, and racially-charged comments made by Donald Sterling and Cliven Bundy. Conservative media’s mantra, Stewart said, is “generalizing isolated incidents.”

“I guess in Fox world, poverty is a choice, but being racist is a product of your environment,” Stewart said.

Senators Face Backlash Over Letter To Iran

 Published on 10 Mar 2015
"Cenk Uygur ( host of The Young Turks discusses the reaction on both sides of the party line to the recent letter sent to Iran by a number of U.S. Senators.

Earlier this week forty-six United States Senators sent out a letter threatening Iran that despite what happens during current nuclear negotiations, the Senate will never ratify any treaty that they didn't like. This was seen as treason by some and was widely regarded as a bad move. Secretary of State John Kerry condemned the letter saying it was intentionally trying to sabotage the talks. President Barack Obama was just short of face palming and stated in a tired by annoyed tone that despite what these senators had tried to pull that nuclear negotiations would continue.

Republicans also gave their voice, condemning the letter. Despite the backlash Senator Tom Cotton, the writer of the letter, continued to defend the letter. He called for a move for a better deal, referencing the recent speech by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the United States Congress."
