Media is an outlet that imposes propaganda and ideology to influence the mass population. Social media has become the new platform that many indulge in to receive the news, trending topics, and education on social issues. Are people that voice their opinions with a large following using their influence to change the world or to divide it ?
Over the past few months I have set aside my differences, being very quiet and observing from afar on how television personality and online video host, Tomi Lahren has disrespected all progression made by black people with ending police brutality and bringing awareness and education on diversity inclusion while ending racism .
She is the true definition of a racist bigot and is the reason why we have problems in our country today. There are many people in this country who think like her but do not have the platform she has to use her antics and say the disturbing things she says to a large population.
Her distaste for the black lives matter movement is clear as day and it’s all because she lacks understanding and lacks the mindset of diversity inclusion .
Tomi Lahren is from Rapid City, South Dakota, a population of 70,812 in 2013, with only 2 percent of black residents making up South Dakota’s population, putting the state in the bottom 10 in terms of percentage.
As informed citizens it is important to recognize where many viewpoints by ‘popular demand’ in media are being constructed from.
Tomi Lahren is a conservative television personality. When she reports stories, they are stimulated from one-sided ideologies. It is geared to plot an agenda based on her own conservative beliefs. Sorta like Fox News commentators.
Tomi wants a position at Fox News so bad that she will go through extremes to say some of the most outlandish things on her show to land a big news commentary position . It is up to us the people to ban Tomi Lahren from spreading her wickedness to other people around the world.
Tomi Lahren has tried to shut down every black voice in America that has influence because she believes that racism and police brutality against blacks does not exist. Go figure, right? At first she ridiculed Jada Pinkett Smith about #WhiteOscars , then Beyonce’ for her Super Bowl performance, Charlamagne and now Jesse Williams for his speech after receiving the Humanitarian Award at the BET Music Awards.
I decided to stay clear on what Tomi Lahren had to say about Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance due to not wanting to heighten up an emotional response that many blog sites had already generated.
However after watching a very alarming and critical clip of what news correspondent Tomi Lahren, from Blaze TV had to say about Jesse Williams speech, I couldn’t help but speak out.
Tomi showed her disgust for Jesse Williams compelling words as he was picked for the Humanitarian Award specifically for his role in producing and directing the documentary Stay Woke #TheBlackLivesMatterMovement.
Lahren believes racism is all just a figment of our imagination and that the only way things will get better in America is if we stop talking about race. But when you have a population that still exhibits racist and prejudice behavior like Tomi Lahren, it’s hard to just stop talking about it.
In Final Thoughts with Tomi Lahren, she downplays the BET Awards suggesting that blacks can’t gather to talk about the issues that still lie ahead, simply because it’s supposed to be an award show to celebrate music. What Lahren seems to forget is the BET Awards is a celebration of black lives, culture, music, and raise awareness on social issues.
The BET Awards isn’t in place to displace any other ethnicity or culture, but if blacks don’t accept who we are and all that we have accomplished, who else will?
The only problem I have with Tomi Lahren is speaking on issues she knows absolutely nothing about because she wants so badly to be heard!
