"Houston We Have A Problem!" The FBI Arrested An American Terrorist Who Has No Skin Tone!

On January 10th, I joined a few progressive webpages in commenting on a Fox News segment that included references to "skin tone" in relation to identifying bad guys. The segment was broadcast on FNC's "Out Numbered"; a show that is based on a broadcast set with moderate numbers of women evenly spaced across a couch (or set of couches) with what seems to be a dress code that includes ample shots of legs and thighs. The show also includes a lone male sitting strategically between the legs and thighs women. The "skin tone" piece included comment from Eric Boling who recently past quasi-apologized for words related to a United Arab Emirates woman fighter pilot ("Boobs on the ground").

If you opted for a quick read of my piece, it should have only taken a moment to find (if it were even necessary) evidence of Fox New's racist business model. Terrorist are not only people of color or people of "skin tone." American terrorist are almost exclusively white male. We have seen recent cases of a Christian terrors surge killer in Norway who was an avowed white supremacist and Nazi worshiper. 

The January 10th piece also included brief images gallery of others who committed vile acts  and who were without "skin tone." 

I await reports of how Fox News handles the arrest of a young terrorist in Cincinnati, Ohio who active espoused attack against the US Congress back through most of 2014.

CBS reports....
Christopher Lee Cornell, 20, is pictured in a Jan. 14, 2015, booking photo provided by the Butler County Jail after his arrest in connection with a plot to attack the U.S. Capitol.



FBI agents arrest Christopher Lee Cornell at the Point Blank Range and Gun Shop on Jan. 14, 2015, in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Terrorism is a serous matter. The nation and the world not long ago was wallowing in the glee of people like Edward Snowden and Glenn Greenwald and their revelations of NSA MetaData gathering. Russia's most celebrated immigrant, Snowden, also reported on intent and telephone monitor well beyond the gathering of meta data. OK, point well taken, Snowden has his notoriety and Greenwald appears hopeful of a Pulitzer Prize for Journalism. Yet, life circa the internet is not life as it was when James Bond's 007 was the archetypal spy. 

When media equates terror to people of color while virtually ignoring acts perpetrated by whites, media is culpable in clear and present danger.
