I was just watching ABC News a few moments ago during your 24th anniversary show. I WAS OFFENDED!
T.J. Holmes, referring to another member of the team, apparantly behind him someplace, used the phrase “Typical White Man” AND HE SAID IT TWICE! Excuse me? What exactly is a “Typical White Man” Was the fellow behind him taking land from the Native Americans at that moment? Why is a “Professional” (And I use the term lightly) referencing a persons race in a manner suggesting stereotype? Is this really a professional thing to say? Is this a position that ABC Supports?
How would he have felt if a similar stereotyping comment were made toward him ?
I assume he intended his comment as a “Joke” But is that any way to “Joke” on national television?
Is this mentality not the very one we are working so hard to eradicate from our society ?
A person in a respected professional position making such a comment almost suggests that it is accepted or OK to stereotype people. is this not any longer considered racist to stereotype people? I am offended and I will no longer watch ABC programming. If this is acceptable behavior from your “Professionals” , I can no longer support your agency and its programs. Further, I will be certain to address the matter with everyone I come in contact with, and blog it as well as post it on all my web sites. I will encourage people to think twice before supporting a station who’s management allows such behavior. Finally, I believe I will make it the subject of this coming Sunday sermon. By the way, Before you dismiss me, stereotype me as some southern preacher with an attitude….I just arrived in Alabama for professional reasons, I am an ordained minister, a Clinical Psychologist and a public speaker. Most recently I lived in Los Angeles and New York. I plan to make it my personal hobby to help people understand the position ABC seems to support. I would also like to note that my 19 year old daughter was watching with me, and she immediately turned to me and asked “Can He Say That ?” She is now planning a social media campaign. With a few thousand friends and followers, I am certain she will have an interested audience. Most Sincerely, Rev Dr. L.Fortney
