MSNBC’s Cross: RNC’s Black Speakers
‘Looked Like a Modern-Day Minstrel
Show to Me’

Original Article

During Sunday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” host Tiffany Cross criticized the Republican National Convention for its diverse presentation of speakers throughout the week. She dismissed the display as being reflective of the Republican Party and President Donald Trump. Instead, Cross urged viewers not to be “fooled” by Republicans and said the “slew of black speakers” looked like a “modern-day minstrel show.”“If you watched the Republican convention last week, you would almost think the Republican Party is the one welcoming people of color given the big display of diversity,”

Well, to normal humans, they looked like other normal humans who were thinking for themselves and expressing their own views in public. I didn't see one banjo or tambourine, either.

She really stepped in it with this smart aleck comment. Insulted some very decent black people... The minstrel show, or minstrelsy, was an American form of entertainment developed in the early 19th century. Each show consisted of comic skits, variety acts, dancing, and music performances that depicted people specifically of African descent. The shows were performed by mostly white people in make-up or blackface for the purpose of playing the role of black people. There were also some African-American performers and black only minstrel groups that formed and toured. Minstrel shows lampooned black people as dim-witted,[1] lazy,[1] buffoonish,[1][2] superstitious, and happy-go-lucky.[1]

Just a reminder to Elie Mystal and the other " folks" at MSDNC: Which candidate was recently endorsed by white supremacist Richard Spencer?? was not Donald Trump!! How about that for an inconvenient truth? If you want to find a real racist all you need to do is look in a mirror. I'm sure you have one close by.

The condescension, stupidity and insults from this profoundly ignorant person (and the others spouting similar) are disturbing and disgusting. Each one of these amazing speakers knows that he or she has a lot to lose by being so public in their denunciation of the Democrat party. They will be subjected to abuse such as this article notes, and worse. They know they will be ridiculed and canceled --or the attempt will be made. Unlike the ugly junk coming out of Cross's spongy brain, we were enriched by the presentations made by the Black speakers at the RNC. We need to reject this vicious racism coming from the Dem/Left, including that coming from their Black punditry class. And if anyone thinks that doesn't exist, read about the civil war in Rwanda. But we must reject this truly repulsive kind of rhetoric and mentality.

Unless this clown is over the age of 60, I'm pretty sure he's never be to, or seen a minstrel show. Those things ended back in the mid sixties. One has to watch the movie, " White Christmas " to even see a Hollywood version of a minstrel show. The ones I use to go when I was under ten years old didn't have the dancing numbers as the movie, it was really a lot of jokes and singing, but I do remember the adults talking about ending them because of the civil rights movement. They were afraid of attracting trouble at the firehouse where the shows would take place each year.

Ms. Cross should check her history books and if she did she would learn that Al Gore Sr., yup you know who his son is, voted against the Civil Rights Bill of 1964. His son Al Gore Jr., went around telling people for the longest time that his father lost his senate seat because he voted for the Civil Rights Bill of 1964. That was a lie. But that's democrats being democrats. There were even stories that when LBJ signed the bill in 1965 he quietly told his closest democratic friends that "Those (n-word) will vote for us for the next 200 hundred years.

The new mandate, set forth by Contra Costa District Attorney Diane Becton, makes it tougher to prosecute looting cases in the county, which sits just outside San Francisco. Investigators must now consider “was this theft offense substantially motivated by the state of emergency, or simply a theft offense which occurred contemporaneously to the declared state of emergency?” according to the policy reported by local outlet East County Today. In making that determination, they must also consider five other factors, including “was the theft committed for financial gain or personal need?”
