FOX News reached a new level of ignorance while discussing the terrorist attack in Paris.
According to one correspondent discussing the attack on the Charlie Hebdo office in France, the assailants probably could have been identified by using the paper bag test. Unfortunately, the victims probably didn’t get a great look at their complexion.
“That’s my question about these guys, because, if we know they were speaking unaccented French and they had, you know, ski masks on, do we even know what color they were?” Shannon Bream said during a segment on Wednesday. “What the tone of their skin was. I mean, what if they didn’t look like typical bad guys?”
Yep! Shannon suggested that you probably can judge a book by its cover.
Here’s a number of other things we wouldn’t be surprised to hear uttered on FOX News.
1. Segregation Is A Good Thing
Everyone is more comfortable being around their own kind, so it’s probably best to just keep everyone together. Keeps things in order.
2. White Privilege Doesn’t Exist
Just because our forefathers set up the laws in our favor generations ago and withheld wealth from the underclass doesn’t mean things are easier for me and my family our friends today. We got ahead on nothing but hard work and good luck! Anyone else could easily do the same.
3. All Illegal Aliens Look The Same.
Everybody knows that the only undocumented immigrants in ‘Merica came from south of the border. It’s impossible for people from Canada or Japan or France to be here illegally.
