Focusing on bias and untruths

A letter to the editor titled “Does Legal make it right?” brought up the case about taking money from whites and giving it to blacks for things that happened over 100 years ago.

Some effort by the liberal writer would have revealed a lot of untruths about his comments if he had bothered to do some research.

The writer mentions a January 2008 documentary film called “Banished” that told the liberal version of stolen land and lives in the South. The documentary was written by a black liberal fiction writer name Marco Williams, who was born and raised in New York City and is a professor at a New York University and a stout supporter of Obama.

The writer also mentions that Harrison, Arkansas, is the home of the Klu Klux Klan. A little effort by the writer would have revealed that Zinc, Arkansas, is the headquarters. Also, the Klan was started by Democrats.

Then he mentions the current June 2014 issue of Atlantic Magazine, which has a exhaustive article dealing with reparations. That magazine is owned by David G. Bradley, a liberal born and raised in Washington D.C. who donated thousands of dollars to Hillary Clinton and Obama.

The writer of the article on reparations is Ta-Nehisi-Coates, a liberal black born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, who is also a stout supporter of Obama.

Surely there is no bias or untruths in the film or the article written in Atlantic Magazine. Just like Obama never speaks any untruths.
