    This is a good one. "White" and "black" are mentioned in the headline. Looks like so far, I will stop talking about race on July 23rd.
    I'm noticing one of the CNN headlines, "When Russia came knocking for Julian Assange". Looks like things are so bad for the Mueller indictment of Concord Management that CNN is fully in damage control trying to salvage the hoax. Pure propaganda, the staple of the mainstream media.

    I can't go digging either - the racebait must be located directly on CNN's front page, and I have to provide a screenshot.

    I'll keep track of them here.
    Who?

    How about you have them confirm that that was the deal?

    How about you have them confirm that CNN reporting on the fact that another woman said she was evicted due to her race, that that is not the woman talking about race but is in fact CNN talking about it instead?






    Something if not several things in this thread stink(s)

    You got that from a headline?

    You have a problem with CNN reporting news?

    I can't recall who it was. They had accused me of talking about race a lot, which I do. I offered a unilateral deal - I'd stop talking about it once CNN goes 7 days without. In the latest example, the claim was that the woman was evicted because she had black guests. CNN chose to identify her race in the headline. It goes without saying that it was yet another negative article about race relations.

    CNN's racial stories are kind of like daily Dunkin Donuts expenses. You don't really notice unless you keep track - one day you turn around and find out you're giving $400 a month to Dunkin.

    I offer a new deal! I won't have a problem with CNN's racial reporting if you don't have a problem with Fox's reporting on black crime. They are both "news".

    Doesn't look like you're coming up with much about race from CNN beyond the current events about Trump. The way you talk, I expected to see more.

    There is tons of racial stuff on CNN. To make is sporting, I was going for front-page only and direct mention of race in the link itself. Were I to expand the parameters, a whole new world of "Americans" comes to light, courtesy of CNN:

    "Latinx":

    First one includes pronunciation advice, a real gem!:

    What does it mean to be Latino in America today? - CNN

    Applications Open for Colgate-Palmolive's Annual Haz la U™ Educational Grant Program

    This one says latin in the URL but has "Latinx" in the headline:

    New Latin Stars of Hollywood


    Hispanic or Latino? Which "American" are they?

    Hispanic or Latino? Why their identity is so complicated - CNN


    Hispanics trying to be white:

    Opinion: Why are Hispanics identifying as white? - CNN


    Diversity of Hispanics!

    http://inamerica.blogs.cnn.com/2013/...ial-diversity/

    Latinx representation class!:

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/27/us/se...ass/index.html

    Latino power is rising, but Kamala is inferred to not be Hispanic and "seeks to connect":

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/22/polit...020/index.html

    Aren't Kamala and "Hispanics" all Americans? At any rate, time for the blacks:

    https://money.cnn.com/2018/06/15/tec...ort/index.html

    I have to quote the above article, it's hilarious:

    "Attrition rates in 2017 were highest for Black Googlers followed by Latinx Googlers, and lowest for Asian Googlers"

    Not only do we have Black Googlers, but we have "Black Travel" too:

    https://www.cnn.com/2016/06/15/afric...ory/index.html

    Writers "of color":

    http://edition.cnn.com/travel/galler...lor/?gallery=0

    Now to the fun stuff - white vs black:

    White woman, black name. Did you know names could be black? CNN does!:

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/15/us/wh...ake/index.html

    "White" schools and "black" schools:

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/27/us/ed...rnd/index.html

    Blackface and New Orleans, "white" is mentioned 16 times:

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/16/us/zu...ace/index.html

    Black babies with lots of comparisons to white babies!:

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/23/healt...udy/index.html

    Blacks and Hispanics make less air pollution than whites:
