Interviewing this author tomorrow

Steffan Tubbs is a Clear Channel employee in Denver and has a new book out about this Iwo Jima vet.....Joseph "Joe" LaNier grew up in rural Mississippi, steeped in the segregation so prevalent preceding World War II. Though exposed to a time of hate and injustice—at a level almost unimaginable today—it did not daunt his desire for what was good and true. At just seventeen he joined the segregated United States Navy and became one of the first African-American Navy Seabees, shipping out to Iwo Jima in early 1945. It was an experience that changed him in so many ways, solidifying his hope for a better life. After the war he was fueled with a burning desire to succeed, even when told, as a black man, he could not vote. He completed his education in pharmaceutical studies in New Orleans, building a prosperous career taking him through St. Louis, Chicago, and finally Denver, despite numerous setbacks—strictly due to the color of his skin.

Good. Another positive post, Fred.

You apparently are not interviewing Steffan Tubbs because he wrote a book about a person who "at just seventeen he joined the ... United States Navy...", not interviewing someone who wrote a book about a patriotic American who shipped "out to Iwo Jima in early 1945", who didn't write a book about a person who overcame a poor rural upbringing and "completed his education in pharmaceutical studies in New Orleans".

You are interviewing this writer because he wrote a book about a black man.

Stop posting these racist comments that need approval from Zeyad. Can't you just interview a writer who wrote a book about a patriotic American WWII Sailor? Why are we forced to consider the color of his skin?

Haven't you heard that "Black people (are here) to entertain you, make you cheer at sporting events, and serve you coffee."? Zeyad said so.

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

I never said Black people are here to entertain us, make us cheer, or serve us coffee. To me it appears that Whites only feel comfortable with Black people if they do these things. If Blacks are in leadership roles most Whites I've run into have a problem with that.

In the shamelss promotion for the popular talk radio show above, it was pointed out that the person being interviewed wrote a book about an african american WWII vet who graduated college and became a pharmacist.

To keep things "fair", in the future Fred should also mention the same thing for white people, otherwise Fred can be labled a racist who hates white people.

For instance, if Fred were to interview Don Grahm about his biography of Audie Murphy named "No Name on the Bullet: A Biography of Audie Murphy" Fredrich should say
"Tomorrow I interview Don Grahm about his biography of Audie Murphy, who is white, and is the most decorated soldier in WWII."

That's equality. Either keep the same standard or risk being labled a racist. It looks to me like Fred hates white people because he has never pointed out anyone he interviews is white.

BTW (edit)
Here is the link you posted. Your EXACT WORDS WERE "change the attitude of White America that African Americans are fit to do things other than perform stage acts, slam a basketball or be their servants"

You did not say "change the attitude of some White Americans", you included ALL "White America". That is a racist position. I understand you do not like being called a racist, but if you are comfortable calling Fred and/or I a "racist", are we supposed to roll over and take it?

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

BUSTED

"I never said that" LOL oh yes you did. Hence why we ask for citations and facts round here ZC. So you can either get with the program or end up delusional like purnhrt who when presented a link and a quote retorts with "I know what actually happened" and continues with her racist delusions.

Blah, blah, blah. Your post only proves you can't understand what you read, or how you distort things.

I have never met anyone who is not a racist.

Now Fred, how are we supposed to believe Steffan Tubbs, since he is a Clear Channel employee and the book is obviously the will of Bain Capital?

@Dan, that is priceless and the best comment today. thanks

Fred, it was nice of you to refer to my post on your show regarding Goldwater. The way you said it proves people in the media have so much freedom to slant the news any way they want and mislead people. Congratulations for being so ordinary..

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?
