Should Jehmu Shamu Greene Be Fired Terminated?

Alright, just kidding about the Killer Whale reference. But a legitimate question is; should Jehmu Greene lose her job at FOX News for calling Tucker Carlson a "bow-tying white boy"? Jehmu let that little comment slip yesterday on Megyn Kelly's news show, America Live. Carlson and Greene were debating Elizabeth Warren's ridiculous claim to having Cherokee blood when the comment slipped out. I was watching the show and was not actually not sure what I heard until Megyn returned from the next commercial break and apologized for Greene.

And what the most puzzling thing to me is; why did Megan Kelly give out the apology for Jehmu Greene? Why didn't Ms Greene do her own apologizing? Is Jehmu beyond reproach at FOX? Maybe Ms Greene didn't feel she said anything wrong as she later claimed? That's what's really pissing me off. Jehmu may just walk away from this with no consequences. To be perfectly honest I DO NOT want Jehmu Greene fired. Every time she opens her mouth she offers up more examples of the stupidity and covert racism of libs. She's the "gift that keeps on giving" as is often said.

One has to consider that this IS FOX News and they do have a tolerance for stupidity. How else would/could one explain Alan Colmes, Geraldo Rivera, Sally Kohn, Christopher "Bullethead" Hahn and some of the other liberal halfwits that FOX employs? In striving to be "fair and balanced" FOX features an assortment of progressive shit-stains who often make fools out of themselves while striving for liberal ideals. I can't think of a better example than Alan Colmes and his consistent defenses of the indefensible.

I suppose one way to measure what happened here is to use the old "what if a conservative (or White) had said it" comparison.  I'm pretty damn sure we all know what would happen - there would be one less conservative gainfully employed at FOX. And as usual, I saw nothing on the Lame Stream Media about this nasty little incident. Double standard? What double standard?

By the way - I've been watching Tucker Carlson since his days on Crossfire and he hasn't worn a bow-tie in several years so Fuck You Jehmu! (Hey - I made a rhyme)

Is "White boy" a racial slur now? Since when?

Insults are in the eye of the beholder. Personally, I could give a shit if someone called me a "cracker" or "honky". I've been called far worse. If that's the best they can come up with they're dragging ass. Making fun of my grammar or spelling carries far more weight with me. But - I haven't been a "boy" for around fifty years or so I would question their motives for using the word.

I think the reason Black folks get so upset with the word is because it implies "you're NOT a man" which is a big deal.

My problem is the double standard attached to what Jehmu said. Can you imagine what kind of shit would be stirred up if Sean Hannity had called Travis Smiley or Al Sharpton a "boy". That's what really pissed me off. And being a flaming lib AND black allowed Jehmu to just walk away with no consequences.
