Washington Post Reporter Howard Kurtz Is A Brainless Hack That Should Be Fired For His Racist And Sexist Column On Black Female Journalists
First, Howard Kurtz is an asshole. Second, it just kills me that white men get away with crap like this. Why in the hell are white males always the first ones to question the objectivity of others without so much of a shred of evidence? America elects its first black President and suddenly, according to Howard "I don't know any black women personally" Kurtz is writing that black female reporters are shaky when it comes to writing about the first African American First Lady. What in the hell?
It's quite clear that Kurtz has run out of things to write about in his column. When all else fails attack minority women in your profession that have been fighting for years to get an equal opportunity in the first damn place. Did Kurtz bother to review articles written by these black women reporters? No, he didn't, but that didn't stop him from questioning their professional objectivity anyway.
I think the crux of Kurtz's problem is not the objectivity of black female reporters, but the fact that his all-white professional world has been turned upside down by the sudden influx of black women in that space. Instead of admitting that fact, he used his column to smear the source of his professional fears - his black female colleagues. What an asshole.
