Van Jones Nails It: Media Only Care About Black Kids Killed by ‘White Cops’ or ‘White Supremacists’

In this episode of Oops, He Did It Again…

So, “he” is a former advisor to then-President Barack Obama and current CNN contributor Van Jones, and the “oops” was Jones once again speaking out in direct conflict with one of the left’s many narratives.

During an appearance on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday, Jones laid bare the hypocrisy of the left-wing media about the murder rate among America’s young black males. 

Maher began the segment with several related statistics:

Bingo. And I can only imagine the reaction of left-wingers watching the show when Jones not only agreed but also tossed the media way under the bus.

What the media — including race hustlers like MSNBC’s Joy Reid and ABC’s “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin — “only care” about is fanning the flames of racial division, and doing so by despicably connecting virtually every concocted dot from black-on-black crime to “racism,” “white supremacy,” or… wait for it… Donald Trump.

Maher asked Jones why “the [black] leaders” aren’t calling out the reality of black-on-black homicide.

Jones suggested black leaders are calling out the reality, but agreed that more should be done.

And kudos to Van Jones.

The Bottom Line

The dirty little non-secret secret on the left is this: 

The Democrat Party has sewn the seeds of racial division for six decades because, for example, while black Americans comprise less than 14 percent of the population of the country, Democrat presidential candidates must garner an overwhelming percentage of the black vote to win elections. 

Moreover, the Democrats secure the support of a veritable patchwork quilt of disparate demographic groups to win. It really is that simple. Hence, black influencers like Van Jones — an Obama Bro Democrat, no less — blowing up the left’s various narratives are to be dismissed, discredited, or simply ignored.
