CNN has again entertained their conservative viewers with the most racists media contributor allowed on US airways. Harry Houck, former NYC cop, has well surpassed Pat Buchanan is an overt racist who should be denied opportunity to spew unqualified data to support his racism. We have captured and posted the CNN segment below. As you listen to Houck, try to retain the thought he quotes data which may have been influenced by "Stop and Frisk" policies which target blacks and Latinos.
STOP & FRISK
A non-bound show host would have requested more about the data Houck spewed. A real journalist (VS a host from a popular and elitists NYC family) would have asked not only about the genesis of the data, they would have referenced the data with "stop & frisk" as a dark cloud over NYC police enforcement. By default and due to a lack of journalistic acumen Chris Cuomo facilitated Houck's racism.
“In New York City alone, blacks are 23 percent [of the population],” he said. “They make up 75 percent of all shootings, 70 percent of all robberies, 60 percent of all violent crimes. White only 3 percent. That is why there are more blacks in jail than there are whites.”
After some back and forth, CNN commentator and former HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill weighed in, “Harry just went on national TV and said black people are prone to criminality.”
“Well, they are.” Houck said.
“You think black people are prone to criminality?” Hill asked. “You don’t mean to say that. I’m going to give you a chance to correct [yourself]. You don’t mean that black people are prone to criminality.”
“The statistics here show this,” Houck fired back, pointing at his sheet of statistics. “What does this say?”
Houck has a history with CNN that seems to unfold when CNN needs an arch conservative (apparent racist) for comment. In October 2015, we published this piece with Houck rationalizing cop abuse. CNN found another opportunity to expose its conservative audience to Houck in December 2015. In February of this year, Houck was again booked on a CNN segment as the lone voice of that portion of the white America which feeds off social regressivism: Beyonce tour?
Crooks & Liars also published a piece with a bit more detail with a closing remark which is the bottom-line on Houck. He should be closed out of US media. He is without question a racist and he is the product of a corrupt law enforce community which for decades abused minorities. Houck was again allowed on CNN to spew data without any qualifying of the data as being that of a police dept. which target black and Latino men.
CNN's Harry Houck Claims Black People Are 'Prone To Criminality'
CNN started the day with a feverish argument, thanks largely to their guest, the inflammatory ex-police officer, Harry Houck. Marc LaMont Hill, a regular pundit, a professor at Moorhouse College and reasonable person whenever Houck appears on CNN, first clarifies the problem. HILL: I think we have to reject the ninety-nine percent of cops are good…
