Accuracy in Media

In Part 1 of this two-part report, I pointed out that “Many exhibits in the new $500 million National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. will be worthwhile. They will highlight the struggle to overcome slavery and give black people the rights they were promised in the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution. Many black Americans have achieved great success.”

I also pointed out that “black leadership in America, which is viewed by the media as almost exclusively liberal and Democratic, is not without major flaws. In addition, we think that the growing black conservative movement will not be given the attention it deserves. In the spirit of truth and transparency, we offer examples of exhibits that we have reason to believe, based on advance publicity, will not be available to those visiting the museum.”

In Part 1, I identified nine such exhibits that won’t be available to museum-goers, plus a list of the top donors to the museum. Here are 10 more such exhibits:

  • Bill Cosby’s history as a sexual predator. During an interview with NBC Nightly News anchorman Lester Holt, museum director Lonnie Bunch said that a guiding principle of the new museum is to “tell the unvarnished truth” about the black experience in America. For example, a statue of founding father Thomas Jefferson is shown in front of 600 bricks, each one named for a slave he owned. However, an exhibit about black entertainer Bill Cosby has only one sentence about his sexual scandals, saying that the “revelations about his alleged sexual misconduct have cast a shadow over Cosby’s entertainment career and severely damaged his reputation.” Lawyers for Cosby are now claiming that racial bias is to blame because 12 of the 13 women who are scheduled to testify in court that he drugged and molested them are white. In total, more than 50 women have accused him of rape, sexual assault, molestation or sexual harassment.
  • The anti-police cry of “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” was a lie. The false claim that blacks in Ferguson, Missouri responded to a police stop there with “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” fueled the riots that cost businesses and taxpayers millions of dollars, and ruined the career of Police Officer Darren Wilson. The evidence and witness statements in the case demonstrated that no such statement was made, and that a black thug assaulted Officer Wilson and was shot and killed. Yet the museum features the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” image. Colin Flaherty, an award winning reporter and author of Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry: The hoax of black victimization and those who enable it, says that what happened in Ferguson was a carefully orchestrated hoax, perpetrated with the help of the media.
  • Black-on-black crime: the Chicago experience. By September 8, 2016, the number of homicides in Chicago this year had already reached 500. This is a 20-year high. In addition, 2,949 people had been shot, according to the Chicago Tribune. A 71-year-old man who was watering his lawn was recently shot by a young black thug who wanted his money. Columnist John Kass reports, “The shooters, these feral young men, aren’t an accident. They are the direct product of the Democratic welfare state that helped destroy families. The government became the father, the fathers became irrelevant or were driven off, and black families that had withstood decades of Jim Crow segregation began to collapse.”
  • White people were also slaves. Janet Levy, an activist and freelance journalist, notes that while institutional slavery conjures images of pre-Civil War Southern ownership of African slaves, it is actually “an ancient practice dating from ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome, as well as early Amer-Indian empires in Mexico and Central America. It was also well established and ideologically sanctioned in the Muslim world from the days of Mohammed.” Reviewing the contents of the book, Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters, by Ohio State history professor Robert Davis, she adds, “Concurrently with African enslavement in the Americas, a flourishing slave trade existed from 1500 to 1800 of white Christian Europeans by the Muslims of North Africa’s Barbary Coast.”
  • Slaves helped burn down and build the White House. “I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves,” says first Lady Michelle Obama. However, some slaves were hired by the British to burn down the White House during the war of 1812. The British were offering faux freedom to slaves if they would fight for the British oppressors and wage war on America. Some of these slaves wore redcoat uniforms. Jane Cook, the author of Stories of Faith and Courage from the Revolutionary War and The Faith of America’s First Ladies, reports, “Called the Colonial or West Indies Militia, these former slaves were part of the British marines, soldiers, and sailors who attacked Washington. These forces defeated American forces at Bladensburg, Maryland, on August 24, 1814, and arrived at sunset in Washington, where they burned most of the public buildings, most notoriously the White House and the U.S. Capitol.”
  • Blacks in America have had a much better life in America than Africa. Former Washington Post reporter Keith Richburg, author of the book, Out of America: A Black Man Confronts Africa, said he was lucky that his ancestors came to America, even though they came as slaves. He wrote: “Would I be better off if this great tragedy, this crime of slavery, had not occurred? What would my life be like now?” As AIM chairman Reed Irvine noted in a review of the book, Richburg’s answer, as he viewed the victims of the massacres that took the lives of an estimated million people in Rwanda in 1994, was, “There but for the grace of God go I.” Today, black billionaires in America include Michael Jordan, the former basketball player; Oprah Winfrey, and tech investor Robert Smith.
  • Black power advocate Angela Davis was a hard-core pro-Moscow communist. A “Black Power” exhibit at the new museum shows black activist Angela Davis. In fact, Davis supported the imprisonment of Soviet political dissidents (calling them common criminals), and was awarded the International Lenin Peace Prize by communist East Germany. She personally met with East German dictator Erich Honecker. She was a former Communist Party vice presidential candidate, and was acquitted as an accessory to the 1970 murder of California judge Harold Haley.
  • Blacks Are Worse Off Under Obama. Black conservative Demetrius Minor points out that under Obama, the number of blacks owning homes has declined, the black workforce has decreased, and the median minority family income has declined. Black conservative Deroy Murdock points out that the percentage of blacks in poverty and the number of blacks on welfare has increased under Obama.
  • Some current black leaders are racial demagogues. The Reverend Al Sharpton participated in the Tawana Brawley hoax, back in 1987, in which a black girl made false and damaging charges of rape against a group of white men. Sharpton was found guilty of defamation and ordered to pay a fine in that case. The Federal Election Commission ordered Sharpton to return $100,000 that he had received in federal matching funds for his presidential campaign after citing financial irregularities. The Reverend Jesse Jackson, who served as an aide to Martin Luther King, Jr., admitted having sex with a female employee and having an illegitimate child. Tommy R. Bennett, who served as Jackson’s personal travel assistant and ran the legal clinic at Jackson’s organization, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, has alleged that he escorted women to Jackson’s hotel room and was then ordered to clean up after Jackson had sexual intercourse with them. Jackson has denied the charges. Also, Barack Obama’s “former” pastor Jeremiah Wright falsely claimed during a National Press Club speech that the U.S. government had manufactured the AIDS virus to kill black people.
  • Abortion is black genocide. Minority women constitute only about 13 percent of the female population (ages 15-44) in the United States, but they underwent approximately 36 percent of the abortions, according to the website blackgenocide.org. Pro-life activist Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., says, “African-American communities are targeted by the abortion industry and too many of our babies die in abortion.” She says, “My uncle didn’t live to experience the horrors of legal abortion, which includes death to babies and harm to women. Today he would have fought just as hard to secure the rights of unborn Americans as he fought for racial justice for Blacks.” She says that her uncle was offered an award from abortion provider Planned Parenthood in 1966, but didn’t accept it in person. She says the reason her uncle was offered the award was to attract the black community to Planned Parenthood.

    Well now we know. Cliff Kincaid can’t adequately express his racist idiocy in only one post. Got it.

  • Brent

    So, outside of the Angela Davis/Black Leader Demagogues/Slaves burned & built the WH (item’s I haven’t delved into) and Bill Cosby (not convicted as of now)…what parts are idiocy? Maybe I should look closer…

  • disqus_smWiOrvPtd

    Who is the “WE,” in “Well now WE know”? Are you the spokesman for somebody?

  • disqus_smWiOrvPtd

    I don’t how a liberal can call somebody a “racist” with a straight face.

  • Regarding Blacks overwhelmingly voting for Democrats, LBJ summed it
    all up in an off-record discussion with Southern governors:

    http://www.np.reddit.com/r/conspiracy/comments/206ve3/ill_have_those_ns_voting_democratic_for_the_next/

    Lyndon Baines Johnson 1963… “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty
    uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got
    something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their
    uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give
    them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to
    make a difference… I’ll have them niggers voting Democratic for the
    next two hundred years”.

    53 years down, 147 years to go.

  • You betcha !!! IronChefSandwiches is the spokesman (OOPS! I should have written “spokesperson”) for the A.S.A.H.A. . (American Society for Ad Hominem Arguments)

  • Austinniceguy

    You can sit EVERY black person in this country down and show them irrefutable proof of this and much more and they will STILL vote for the demoncraps because they have been conditioned into their laziness and dependence on welfare.

  • Austinniceguy

    Another moronic post from the mouthpiece for the libtard left, got it!!!!

  • jug

    But you certainly can!
    And do so constantly!
    Every post, actually!

  • MacCheerful

    So telling them that they’re lazy and corrupt hasn’t changed their political opinions? Perhaps you should try a new tactic.

  • Austinniceguy

    Why, I’m not running for office. I’m all for sending them all the Chicago or Detroit and letting them take care of each other. You should try some common sense.

  • Timothy Weston

    Write a letter to the chief curator and suggest these exhibit ideas.

  • climate3

    Lol. Kincaid thinks he has a say in what our history should be. ???

  • disqus_smWiOrvPtd

    So much for your diverse group of people dialoguing to a consensus.

  • HikerJohn316

    The Black History
    Museum – would Martin
    Luther King want a separate But Equal museum or would he have preferred that
    the history of Black Americans be rightly and truly shared in our country’s
    museums that are for all people?

  • Steven Barrett

    You don’t deserve to be elected to anything. And you know why.

  • Steven Barrett

    It doesn’t make a damn difference if in the eyes, ears, heart, and yes, the nose, of a liberal, conservative moderate, if he or she is dealing with an obvious racist, and calls that person out for what he (or she) happens to be, so be it. It just so happens that there are too damn many racists, classicists, you name ’em finding comfort in the so-called comfort zone of conservatism. If real conservatives stood up to say, get the hell out and told the leeches trying to find shelter under what they perceive to be a “conservative umbrella of respectability,” to get the hell away … then conservatism wouldn’t have such a bad reputation, would it? Take it from a former conservative; your stalls need a hell of a good cleansing.

  • Austinniceguy

    That was a moronic response.

  • Steven Barrett

    And this reply proves my point. As for your desire “for sending them all the Chicago or Detroit and letting them take care of each other,” well, bad grammar notwithstanding, it doesn’t take a lot of training in civics to see what you mean by the last half of that sentence. Hell, why didn’t you just let everybody know where you’d really like to send “them” off to: Africa … am I correct?
    That might seem a bit difficult for you to ‘fess up to expressing your real sentiments. But in your case, sad to say that’d be easier than “trying common sense.”

  • Austinniceguy

    Blah, blah, blah, blah. Didn’t waste my time reading your moronic blatherings.

  • disqus_smWiOrvPtd

    Oh, get off your high horse.

  • Steven Barrett

    Thank you, you just made my night after a long day.

  • disqus_smWiOrvPtd

    You are welcome. Anytime.

  • Bri Blacktivist
