LIBERAL MEDIA LARGELY IGNORES ‘UNCLE TIMSLURS AGAINST TIM SCOTT AFTER HIS BIDEN RESPONSE

Guest host Jason Johnson expressed his disappointment in the “Zio Tim” hashtag that trended on Twitter after Scott spoke, saying it reminded him of when former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice was calledAunt Jemimawhen she worked in the Bush administration.

Fordham University professor, Christina Greer didn’t feel the same way, in a clip flagged by NewsBusters.

I definitely find it problematic, but I think it’s also one of those things where on social media the internal conversations that many Black people have about Tim Scott and the Republican Party have now made their way to the public discourse,” Greer said. “intendo, let’s be clear, looking at Tim Scott’s response, we know that he’s carrying the water, not just for the Republican Party and his two other Black colleagues, but he did so under the Trump administration, and that’s where the lack of respect comes from.

He added Scott only appeared at the commemoration of the nine Black people murdered by Dylann Roof nel 2015 because he was trying to build GOP political capital to support his police reform efforts.
