Right Wing Radio Host Goes Full-On Racist in Texas

I’m sure by now you’ve all seen the footage of the police officer in McKinney, Texas doing his best impression of an action movie cop in responding to a pool party fracas. Conservatives are trying in vain to defend the asshole and a right wing talk show host in Houston decided to just put on the white hood:

“Issues like this make for great evening news,” Berry opined on the Monday edition of his radio program. “They have a great little video clip, they show a cop throwing somebody to the ground. And then in steps the black pastor and he says, ‘We’re not going to stand for this!’”

“And then you’ve got a ready-made crowd of people who don’t have day jobs that are ready to storm the streets and threaten the cops.”

According to Berry, the teens at the pool party were “amped up” and screaming “like jungle animals.”

“I mean, this is wild, crazy, out of control,” the radio host insisted. “Would you ever, when a cop showed up, he’s got a gun… Now mind you, he didn’t show up to a tea party, he showed up to reports of fights breaking out.”

“He showed up to people, and yes, they’re probably white people scared to death, peeking through the blinds, ‘Oh, my God, there’s a bunch of black people and they’re out on the streets and they’re fighting and carrying on, and they’re playing that music from Jay Z.’ And they’re scared to death,” he continued. “That’s who his bosses are. He’s there to keep the peace in his community.”

Yeah, white people who get scared to death when they hear a Jay Z song are the ones the cops work for. They don’t work for black people! I guess that explains the pervasive racism in our criminal justice system, dutifully defended by racist jerks like Michael Berry.

    I don’t see what all the fuss is about. It’s a safety issue. The police should be being congratulated, not pilloried. They, and I can’t stress this enough, saved those kids’ lives. Everybody knows that Urban Americans can’t swim.

     

    What do you mean, I’m not helping?

    He’s the Star Wars Kid of police, if the Star Wars Kid was allowed to shoot people.

    What is with out-of-touch old white people and Jay Z? Are they just scared of the letter in his name, like he’s Malcolm X’s grandson or something? Just how scary can being grossly overrated be anyway?

  • sugarfrosted

    @2 Jay Z is one of the most inoffensive big time rappers. I have no idea why else they’d be terrified of him.

  • cptdoom

    Reports of the incident, which caused the officer in question to resign in disgrace, indicate that 1) many, if not most, of the kids, including the host of the party, lived in the neighborhood, 2) there was an adult on site to supervise who was never approached by the police and 3) the police were called by racist whites who first insulted the kids (one woman telling them to “go back to your Section 8 housing”) and then physically assaulted the teenage host of the party when she tried to stand up for her friends.

    So if the officer in question was correct in what he was doing, then why aren’t his supporters blaming the other officers on site for not doing their job correctly??

    On a personal note, I feel the need to apologize on behalf of my fellow Texans. Some of us are reasonable. We aren’t all insane. But, to be safe I need to call the mothership to come get me outta here

    I suspect the racist old folks may refer to Jay Z because he’s the only modern black musician they can remember. Or it might be they just feel the need to tear the guy down because he’s so successful and doesn’t fit the negative stereotype they have of all black people.

    Even the local police chief said the cop was out of line…and said cop has since quit the force.

    As for me…when I hear rap, I have this urge to put on some John Philip Sousa and crank the volume up. Or I could seriously confuse the issue by putting on a CD of Scott Joplin.

    It is simply a matter of taste. Rap is a little less accessible than some music types. And of course, (Sturgeon’s law applies here as always) most of it isn’t all that good. But there are great rap songs and great rap artists, just as there are great songs and artists in other music types. And sometimes, even if the song isn’t great, it is still fun. I’ve always been very fond of Wild Thing. Personally I rather like rap music, taken with some moderation.

  • otrame

    But I am curious. What did you mean by “seriously confuse the issue by putting on a CD of Scott Joplin”?

  • http://en.uncyclopedia.co/wiki/User:Modusoperandi Modusoperandi

    otrame, while ragtime isn’t scary, Scott Joplin was the Jay Z of his day.

  • Juniper

    and they’re playing that music from Jay Z

    This makes me laugh. Not only should the punishment outweigh the crime, but the punishment should especially outweigh the crime if they’re blasting rap!

    Bias is a many-layered thing.

    I’m confident my gaydar capabilities perform at a rudimentary level. And I don’t think there a lot of homophobes that are gay like so many in this forum claim. Yet here my gaydar was definitely getting a strong reading.

    This part:

    “He showed up to people, and yes, they’re probably white people scared to death, peeking through the blinds, ‘Oh, my God, there’s a bunch of black people and they’re out on the streets and they’re fighting and carrying on, and they’re playing that music from Jay Z.’ And they’re scared to death,” he continued. “That’s who his bosses are. He’s there to keep the peace in his community.”

    sounds like sarcasm. Poe’s law? Or he knows what his audience wants, even though he doesn’t believe it himself, and is having them on a bit?

    Re: otrame…

    More to the point, Scott Joplin was black and Ragtime (which is most of what he composed) ultimately spawned Jazz. I rather suspect that most of the current teenagers have never even *heard* of Scott Joblin, let alone know anything of his music. Mind you, I don’t care for much Jazz, but Ragtime I like.

    (For what it’s worth, most of what I like was popular to one degree or another prior to the 20th century, with some exception extending into it. Speaking of which…I’ve just put on Sibelius’ Finlandia.)

  • robertfoster

    I just read an article on the Guardian that said that the cop had a bad day and was emotionally stressed by the time he arrived at the pool party. And what better way for a white cop to relieve his stress than to take it out on some black kids? Makes perfect sense. I guess the next time I have a bad day I’ll go down to the nearest black neighborhood and kick the first old black lady I see. Ah, I feel better just thinking about it.

    The right should love Jay-Z the main theme (imo) of his last album, Blueprint 3, was about how despite having come from the ghetto that’s not his life anymore, nothing even resembling it. He’s rich and famous now because of his hard work and talent. Now Rap is a hobby not a profession, he’s a businessman.

    Christians offer perfect hatred, Pagans offer perfect love and perfect trust. Just sayin’…

    I would suggest that ragtime was the wild music of its day. Yes, Scott Joplin was the Jay Z of his time. He had studied classical music, wrote mellow but sophisticated ragtime , and even wrote an opera. Some of us boomers remember Louis Armstrong’s loved and frequent appearances in movies and later TV variety shows, but when he was young he was playing that Devil’s jungle music dixieland, and played it in drug dens (speakeasies, which later became nightclubs). He might go months at a time (when young) when everybody in his audiences were criminals (i.e. youngsters out on a date, listening to that noise and drinking demon rum. Yes, the music which in my youth sent my grandfather on a furious rant, is now played in shopping malls and supermarkets, often by the original artists.
