I thought you above this kind of yellow journalism Trueman. He did not say'' the biggest terrorist threat to the nation is white me''.

He said, '' the biggest terrorist threat to the nation is white men who mostly have been radicalized to the right''

Do you see the difference? The way you post it does sound racist. But you posted it wrong.

You took his statment, broke it in half and quoted only the first half. You took one sentence and broke it in half. One sentence. Now that is picking and choosing don't you think?



So, theoretically, if I said '' the biggest terrorist threat to the nation is muslim men who mostly have been radicalized'' would that be wrong?

What about '' the biggest terrorist threat to the nation is black men who mostly have been radicalized''?

Considering who has done all the mass shootings in recent years, he's probably right.

Teach me then if you think I am so ignorant.Why to you see it as the same thing. Is saying ''green men are bad'' and green men are bad because they kill people'' the same thing?

For starters, I never called you ignorant. And yes, calling a race of people bad is racist. You can say people who kill are bad, sure. That's a behavior. Why does race need to be in the statement?

Well then I guess we would have to go to the statistics then huh? I am not denying that radicalized men of Muslim faith are a terrorist threat, nor that radicalized black men are a terrorist threat. I am not saying that Muslim men or black men are a terrorist threat.

The emphasis here is radicalized. White men, Muslim men, black men. Radicalized. Extremists.
My point here is the generalization of the statement by OP. The radicalization part was completely left out of the headline and the op as well other than the video.
Taking a statement and quoting only half the statement is fake news. This serves to antagonize ALL white men, most of which are not radicalized. However statements like that can antagonize to the degree that it brings about radicalization.

Yeah, he never called for a ban. He said there isn't one but yet America's greatest domestic threat are white males whom usually fall to the Right side of the political spectrum yet no one is calling for their ban. Comprehension is needed even when watching TV.

But we should ban all WHITE CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVE RADICALS until we figure out WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!

Not asking about whether the 2 statements are factually accurate, because I'm relatively certain domestic threats are in fact dominated by white men... however, that's a whole different story.

I'm simply asking you if you think changing "white" to any other race, would make the statement racist?

As the rest goes, I generally agree...it's the radicalization of these groups that poses a threat.

Right, you didn't. Sorry for my reaction.

And as you offer, I have to take your point. Race should not be added into this equation at all. The point really is ''radicalized men''. No make that radicalized ''people''. I can agree with that. However, agreeing with your point drives me further away from agreeing with OP, in that the radicalization part was completely left out, making the entire OP about race rather than radicalization.

Oh I think he's being facetious but I'm not surprised you can't take a joke.

Actually the opposite. I found it freaking funny. Thanks for teaching me a new word (facetious). It fits the whole CNN.

Change the race in his statement and watch the terror like riots begin. Huge double standard these days. What is it with this guy always having some shock & awe thing to say and gets away with it.
It’s the double standards I can’t stand anymore.

You literally can’t be racist to white men. It’s a scientific fact I learned from my gender studies and sociology professor. The leading experts at Salon and The Root all agree! check your privilege you Nazi. #punchanazi #NPClivesmatter #literallyshaking #bashthefash

Yeah, this really gets down to it. When a witness to a crime is asked for the color of the perp, is it racist to do so? Is it racist to answer either this or that? I just can' t go that far to be PC or whatever it is called to ignore evidence, you know?

So do we interpret Lemons statement as racist because he pointed out what current evidence provides or was he just pointing out evidence. WoW.

In this case I would need to investigate context, back ground. I have never watched Lemon and have watched hardly any CNN. Most of what I know about either CNN or Lemon is from reading here on ATS. And for me to make a decision on any of what I read here I must take only as '' hear say'' evidence.

So I must say I don't know. I don't think the race issue is that easily defined.
