Follow On: Must See TV

October 23, 2007

Respect and thanks to Yobachi for his insightful comment on my quick post: Must See TV

It is evident that African Americans understand the significance of the noose in our history. With the exception of fools like Katt Williams(pictured to the right),Kattwilliams_5we as a people are united in our abhorrence of the noose’s visible representation. 

However, that is not the reason I think we need to pay attention to the CNN expose. The reason is not to educate black America, but to ensure the horrific and true history of this tool of terror is not watered down or trivialized by the corporate media.  Bastardization of history is not a foreign occurrence in today’s reporting. I am realistic about what I am going to see displayed on CNN, its advertising alone displays a lack of knowledge on the subject:

"Kyra Phillips investigates the shocking history of the noose and its re-emergence across the United States."

Calling the history of the noose shocking is the height of naiveté. We need to watch this program if only to ensure it is accurate – graphically accurate!  In short we need to make sure the face under the "hood" of the terror visited upon black people in this country is uncovered.

    Ah, well I agree with you there Bakare, and I had always planned to watch however; if for nothing more to see what they do with it.

    And can somebody tighten that noose up around Kat Williams neck.
