I've watched a few things by The Root and this presenter. They're obviously a propaganda outfit (probably funded by the Russians). They do NOT present the FULL facts, though there are a few grains of truth, wrapped in lies and lies of omission. They show how racists see everything as racism, and how the left will prey on the gullible with exaggerations, distortions and half-truths (at best). Which is a shame, if they were more tame and honest, there are valid points buried in there, but they're so covered in bullshit, that their purpose must be to divide, inflame the gullible, and people get dumber for watching them by thinking they know what they're talking about.

|The Root: Loitering Laws
They use lousy examples and half truths:
There's no evidence of actual racism, or loitering laws were involved, and those are their two best examples? Loitering laws are most often used against teens and whites.
It concludes that people of color are abused by these loitering laws, by ignoring that they're used more against class and activity. So racists see racism as the motivation for everything. And "the root" is a racist organization. And the point is you get more ignorant listening to racists. more...
|The Root: Chinese Food
Another Example is this rant about racism Chinese Restaurants. This is littered with half truths, and spin to get people outraged over what a horrible nation we are. The truth is about 1,000 times more nuanced than they sell it as -- and a few people using Restaurants to circumvent immigration laws can help explain a few Chinese Restaurants that have been around since we had the Chinese Exclusion Acts (nullified after WWII), but what about the majority of them opened since then?
The gullible will watch the video and look around and see Chinese Restaurants as proof of racism. In truth, it's proof of diversity and how welcoming American culture is to foreign foods and cultures, even if things weren't so great for the first generation or two that came here. Also without context you fair to recognize that as bad as America could sometimes be, we were still better than the rest of the world, at virtually every time in our history -- so they are trying to use "presentism" (judging the past by today's SJW's standards) as a way to outrage people. When all it really does is show how myopic and self-absorbed many kids are today to buy that crap. more...
|2019.09.20 Forced Hair Cutting
A 6th Grade Virginia Private school girl (who was black) accused three white classmates last week of forcibly cutting her hair... and that made national news. The FakeNews used it repeat their fabrications about national race problems or worse, coupled it to Jeff Pence (VP) and his wife. Racism is everywhere! Now the accuser admits the allegations were false. The problem isn't just with the people who cry wolf, it's with the media that sensationalizes these FakeNews stories for clicks (chasing the algorithm before fact checking).Some are more responsible with corrections than others, but corrections wouldn't be necessary if we had responsible journalism waiting to get the facts, instead of sensationalizing every accusation with national front page headlines, and back page retraction. more...
