“Angry White Dude”

Here’s a screenshot from today’s MSN news feed:

Microsoft saw fit to include a headline from Talking Points Memo that singles out the race of a troubled man who confronted an NBC reporter. Since the offending man was white, and the reporter was black, TPM and Microsoft considered it appropriate to portray it as a racial issue, even though there’s no indication that race played a role in the encounter. Rather, the man had issues with NBC.

Further up, in today’s MSN feed, we see an Islamic attack, upon the people of New Zealand, described as “ISIS sympathizer stabs 6 people…” In that case, the Islamic religion clearly played a role, and the headline should have stated, “Angry Muslim stabs 6 people,” or something to that effect.

Let’s take a look at the source of this “angry white dude” story on Talking Points Memo:

As Hurricane Ida approached Mississippi on Monday morning, MSNBC correspondent Shaquille Brewster unexpectedly found himself embroiled in another storm — a white man who angrily confronted Brewster, a Black man, during his live report on the hurricane…

The driver of the truck, a white man, jumped out and charged towards Brewster while yelling inaudible remarks. Brewster then directed the camera crew towards the Gulf of Mexico after quickly noticing that there is a “random person going around.”…

“(MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin) I’m going to toss it back to you because we have a person who is…” Brewster is heard saying as the white man confronted him. Brewster appeared to raise his own arm to defend himself and started to lose his grip on his microphone while the white man continued getting in Brewster’s face…

It is unclear what the white man, whose identity has not been confirmed, was yelling about when he confronted Brewster.

However, CNN’s Brian Stelter reported that the white man was shouting anti-media epithets and told Brewster to “report accurately.”

The story is very clear that race had nothing to do with the encounter; if it did, rest assured that we would have been told…

… and yet the “journalist,” one Summer Concepcion, used the term “white man” a total of SIX TIMES.

It appears that any time a white person transgresses, the Corporate Media will use the incident to bash white people – but when black people “randomly” attack white people, race isn’t mentioned at all – as I illustrated in my previous post, and several others in the past.
