I dream of a day when race baiters will be more interested in the content of our character than the color of our skin. At this rate, we’ve got a long wait.
Van Jones — you have NO Chill.
None at all.
Former Obama administration “green jobs czar” Van Jones gave a very blunt, racially-tinged reaction to the impending victory of Donald Trump during CNN’s Election Night coverage: “It’s hard to be a parent, tonight, for a lot of us. You tell your kids, don’t be a bully. You tell your kids, don’t be a bigot….And then, you have this outcome….how do I explain this to my children?” Jones later asserted, “This was a ‘white-lash.’ This was a ‘white-lash’ against a changing country. It was a ‘white-lash’ against a black president, in part.”
The CNN commentator first congratulated Trump supporters Jeffrey Lord (who is also a writer for NewsBusters) and Kayleigh McEnany: “I have enough class, and I was raised well enough to say, when you outdo expectations, good for you.” He continued by setting up his raw take on the election: “There’s another side to this: people have talked about a miracle. I’m hearing about a nightmare.” — NewsBusters

We have a reply for you, Mr. Jones, appropriate to your contribution to the public conversation on race:
