NPR is to the left what Fox News Radio is to the right. You can't deny it when they feature racist columnists like this as well as articles like "In Defense of Looting".

Sentinel, you are a Swastika Rehabilitator.

Aren't you proud of who you are?

Stay on topic, runt.

Sentinel, why do you try to hide the fact that you are a Swastika Rehabilitator?

"For those of us who speak often on these issues, one of the toughest things to do is to go to a white person who is trying hard to be an ally and tell them they need to do more. ... If he really wants to make a difference, Hanks and other stars need to talk specifically about how their work has contributed to these problems and how they will change."

And there it is. The author is saying all white people need to acknowledge they personally contributed to the problems of race relations in this country and repent.

NPR doesn't have endless commercials for viagra or hair loss

So it's nothing like fox "news" radio, stupid

Those commercials are tailored for you.

Good article. I think the author expects too much of an industry that sells fantasy.
But pointing out that Hanks, with his star power, could do more with his recent awareness of Tulsa is a fair point.

I don't see any racism from the article author.

#8 You lie.

The author is not asking for repentance.
He is asking for change.

Mr. Hanks can do WTF he wants to with his life.

Go Pound Sand Eric.

Repent and atone for your sins.

Talk specifically about how your work has contributed to these problems and how you will change.

Same meaning, different words.

No good deed goes unpunished, especially if it can elevate some obscure journalist's profile.

#15 - Actually no. That's just more paraphrasing with the bias from the personal offense you've taken from Deggans' essay. I read the entire thing and I found it instructive. It's an Opinion piece. It's good to hear a different perspective and consider new information and reexamine a premise that you may not even realize you hold.

It was a good Opinion piece.

What's funny is how bent out of shape some are over this, and how dismally stupid Sentinel's comparison of NPR is to Fox "---- it, we're 100% propaganda" News.

I listen to NPR almost every day on my car radio. There's definitely a propaganda spin to most of their pieces.

I suppose you thought "In Dense of Looting" was a good piece as well.

You only think there is because your right wing media has told you so.

I've been listening to NPR for years and have it on all the time. Informative, hardly propaganda.

Unless you consider hearing facts 'propaganda.'

More like, he *is* the right-wing media, telling us so.

Stupid column.

Forced and contrived because for those with a chip on their shoulder no action is ever enough.

For those who've made a career or who've staked their claim on being an expert on racism the problem can never be solved because otherwise they'll be out of a job.

Seriously?

What is your favorite NPR "propaganda" show? What a freakin nut.

So tell us bro ... when is Trumpy being to restored to his rightful place in the White House? It's taking forever!

Everyone knows them there "facts" (if they are true facts and not fake facts) have a liberal bias.

If this self hating wacko pushes this any further he's going to find out that Hanks is technically an ethnic a/o racial minority that an ignorant attention junkie would never have heard of.

Whatever you do, whoever you are, no matter what your opinions.
There will always be those who crab like want to fault you for not being
of their opinion enough.
