The three piece vest with rolled sleeves makes the dude look like a hard working journalist.

Affirmative action news desk.

Then again, Cronkite, Huntley, Brinkley, Rather, Brokaw, et al. weren't much better.

Blowback from denigrating White culture in general and the role of White Males in the family?

Or striking back at White Privilege suppression of multicultural/multiracial goodness?

Well, the MSM is obsessed with bashing Trump and deplorables 24/7 and/or fabricating fictional stories about people ...there's no time for them to report important real news anymore.

For actual factual news one must go to ZH, Breitbart, etc, or one of the unbiased blogs or yootoobs like Black Pigeon Speaks, Louder with Crowder, etc.

CNN, NPR, MSNBC, NBC and many other are total tabloid trash or Marxist propaganda these days.

Four of the top 6 headlines out of London media today are "London Gun Epidemic: 44% increase in offences since 2014"; "Truck carrying 34,000 litres of bomb-making chemical stolen" (happened in Belgium); "Top cop: Police are pushing for tougher sentences for knife crime"; "Teenager stabbed in Barking is latest victim of London knife crime epidemic".... The reason the school shooting is actually in headlines and you're responding to it, is because homicides in schools is still rare and on a down-trend in the US.

A curse shall light upon the limbs of men;
Domestic fury and fierce civil strife
Shall cumber all the parts of Italy;
Blood and destruction shall be so in use
And dreadful objects so familiar
That mothers shall but smile when they behold
Their infants quarter'd with the hands of war;
All pity choked with custom of fell deeds:
And Caesar's spirit, ranging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
Cry 'Havoc,' and let slip the dogs of war;
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial. (3.1.254-275)

LOL I work with people who have severe mental illness... you would not believe how many of my clients are teachers. Not WERE teachers, ARE teachers. They regularly sit with Psychiatrists and then go back to school to teach your kids. I don't know if the schools know.

 

These people who are teaching are fucking nuts. Teachers and state workers have high cases of dementia and neural problems. They cannot handle anything even remotely stressful without breaking down. I will never, NEVER send my kids to public school.

 

LOL arm the teachers. Become your own childs teacher. You can do far better than these nut cases

People don’t require birth-canal exits to understand that school shootings are horrific. One question: Why have so many people with school-aged kids raised so many mass school shooters, when other generations did not? Could it have something to do with the dual-earner household, where both parents take a job out of the economy, with $9-per-hour babysitters, NannyCams, poorly paid daycare workers without benefits or elderly grandparents raising the kids so that mom can make more keeping-up-with-the-Jones’ money that, incidentally, keeps up the pressure on the kids to keep up appearances in this bully-driven society.
