Brooke Baldwin

CNN Anchor Brooke Baldwin broke down in tears after a CNN contributor uttered the racist slur "nigger" live on the air during her segment.

Baldwin, center, invited GOP political consultant Paris Dennard, left, and CNN contributor Charles Kaiser, right, to discuss Donald Trump's senior counselor Stephen K. Bannon.

Baldwin, 37, was taken aback when Kaiser claimed President-elect Donald Trump urged his white supremacist supporters to give the Nazi salute at a rally.

"Wait, when did he say that?" asked Baldwin. "In March," said Kaiser, adding that "there's plenty of video of that".

Kaiser went on to say that if Trump didn't support the so-called "alt-right" movement, he shouldn't choose Bannon as his counselor, "a man who uses the word nigger".

"Wow," said Baldwin who seemed momentarily stunned by Kaiser's language.

She allowed Kaiser to ramble on before interrupting him.

"Charles, I appreciate you going through all of this, but please don't use the n-word on my show."

She wasn't done. At the end of the segment, an emotional Baldwin scolded Kaiser for having the audacity to use disrespectful language on her show.

"I am still… the more I've sat here and listened to the fact that somebody used the n-word on my show…" She paused before continuing. "It is NOT okay," she said with tears in her eyes.

    I mean he could have said 'n-word', but I guess he was keeping it real...?

  • Carolina Blue

    Well, im crying about the smell of stank ass chitterlings coming from the neighbors house.

  • IAmLawlessBrooks

    hmmmm

  • Nonya Bizness

    He's a mf'n lie, and he said that s hit because he wanted to. "I never use the N word except when I'm quoting someone". BS. I don't use that word, period. Not when I'm quoting someone, Not when I'm singing along to a song, not when I'm repeating what someone said. I simply insert the words "N word". So miss me with his BS. This war will never be won. Yt people that want to say that word say it freely, and the others that don't say it freely wait for an opportunity to pounce on to say it. You'll never get an answer that makes sense as to why they feel the need to say it. I've tried to get an answer and have gotten no where. She needed to cut his mic instead of crying.

    Its so bad right. I glance around my surroundings but give no eye contact. People are really on 10 these days with no respect for just human life period. That was completely unnecessary to say that whole word. People just being downright mean.

  • Noirluv45

    People, I'm telling you, the beasts have been unleashed! My friend told me that an old White woman spit on her daughter, who is a checker at a popular grocery store in my hometown, and called her an N. There have been tons of reports of White folks running amok. SMH.

  • Noirluv45

    I feel for ya! Ewww!

  • Noirluv45

    Hmph! I think he's probably used it before. That word flowed out his mouth like an overflowing river.

  • rashad walker

    I guess this what Trump meant by America is "Great again" people being openly racist

  • Michelle

    She didn't correct him because she cares, she did that because she doesn't want the headache and firestorm that would arise from a statement like that. She doesn't want to (like so many others) be "forced" to retire because of the controversy.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I'm as cynical as you are, but she had tears in her eyes. She was emotional and driven to distraction by what he said. If she was covering her azz, why did she break down and cry?

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    The important thing is she corrected him. It just rolled off his tongue like everyday conversation. He tried to say someone else used the word and actually said the word. Like bro, come on. Are we still here in 2016?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    That lady was racist long before Donald Trump was elected.

  • klwbaby

    I usually don't condone violence against the elderly but I would have knocked that heifer out and she would have woken up thinking Nixon is the current president...

  • Cricket404

    White women cry wolf all the time and white men get on their horses, guns loaded to save her reputation. Black women cry and black men accuse them of being trouble makers. It's called the Scarlett O'hara complex.

  • wonderwoman

    Yes she was, but since Trump been elected she now feel she can show it.

  • Opinionated But Fair

    She couldn't cut his mic. That's done in the production booth.

    Please understand that she wasn't prepared for that and didn't know what to do. Those tears were a mix of emotion as she tried to figure out how to handle it to emphasize how much she was denouncing it while still remaining professional.

  • jussaying

    why listen to music that says it repeatedly if you have a prob saying it yourself? i agree with everything else said here but if i don't condone it's use personally i think it'd be hypocritical to make exceptions unless you're arguing that it's not the word itself as much as the undertone and intent.

  • Opinionated But Fair

    I agree with Sandra. I think she was in shock and unprepared for it.

    I believe her emotions were genuine and that she was upset he had actually said such an ugly thing on her show.

    She thoroughly checked him and didn't want excuses. I give her the benefit of the doubt because she wouldn't be blamed for him ESPECIALLY after saying something the first time.

  • Opinionated But Fair

    Why not give her the benefit of the doubt? Nobody suggested building her a monument....She handled that very intensely and treated that as a major problem.

    White ppl can't win with some black ppl...You want to hang a lifetime of bm/bw issues around this woman's neck while she's trying to check this guy for what he did. :-/

    Also, how is she "crying wolf"? No offense, but do you understand what that means? I think you meant "crocodile tears".

  • Opinionated But Fair

    I agree that Trump didn't create the racists. I definitely believe that some of them see his election as a victory for their causes. David Duke himself said so.

    I also believe they will get a rude awakening that they may be too dumb to even comprehend...He doesn't care about them and he just allowed them to think he did so they'd vote for him. Trump's favorite color is green.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Thanks hun. A racist anchor would not have gotten emotional and cried over what he said.

  • jussaying

    sounds like he said it for impact. just like when many journalists were discussing trump and his pucci quote, they repeated that vulgarity and trump supporters took issue with people repeating it on the news but dismissed trump saying it.

    as for miss brooke... eh, i don't like how she handled the situation. i could give an eff less if a racist wants to sit and yell ninja ninja all day. the ninja word does not hurt my wellbeing - i have too much on my plate and too thick of skin to feel bad that someone wants to use it. we've all agreed that it's use is bad, but left industrialized racism alone. you'll never change a racist's opinion, but giving them power to affect laws is much scarier. i'd have rather seen her crying and more upset about the fact that we do have white nationalist sympathizers in the presidents cabinet or as advisors then getting all choked up about a goddamn word.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Yes, we were all bamboozled by The Donald's charm. I still think he will be a good president but he lied to get elected. Hillary Clinton should've been in handcuffs by now.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I think Brook was genuinely insulted. Brook has black friends, and Kaiser is a frequent CNN contributor, so he knows how she gets down. Yet he still had the nerve to use a racial slur on her show.

  • Cujaneer

    For ratings.

  • missmiami305

    If she was appalled she would have checked him immediately. Nancy Grace would have ?

  • Cricket404

    She grew up in Atlanta, she cried as though she has never heard the word before. I'm way too petty to give her the benefit of a doubt no matter how many black friends she has, no tears were necessary. Her voice didn't crack when she reported on the Chattanooga bus accident a week ago. She has a history of back peddling, hmph- she should have vetted her commentators better.

  • Malcom Flex

    Too bad WE don't cry when we use that word. I cut out people in my life who use that word I can't stand to hear it used so carelessly and I don't buy the narrative that it's empowering!

  • Opinionated But Fair

    She's been trained to report on tragedy. She hasn't been trained to deal with someone randomly saying a racial slur out of nowhere. If that had been a right wing contributor, she probably wouldn't have been as thrown off.

    She cried as if she was jarred by unexpected ugliness from an unexpected source.

    If it makes you happy to think the worst, ok. In today's climate, I choose to not add to the toxic environment by unfairly judging ppl.

  • Opinionated But Fair

    Sandra, you are too smart to have really thought they went from wedding guests to true enemies overnight. #YouKnewBetter :-p

  • rodt

    she was in sheer shock

  • Opinionated But Fair

    Ppl are wallowing in the racial tension and projecting their issues onto everyone.

    Honestly, some of the ppl most riled up about the increase in hate crimes are white guilt sufferers. Some black ppl really don't get that there are white ppl who truly want equality and fairness. I was blessed to grow up knowing some, but not everyone was.

    There are some closet racists, but some ppl see them everywhere they turn....whether they are there or not.

  • GuestSTAR

    She probably didn't check him immediately, because the producers had to tell her to in her ear piece. THE PRODUCERS knew they would get pushback, so they likely told her to call him out and she did.

  • Elevated Soul

    The dude that said the word is a "liberal",which doesn't surprise Blacks who are awake because they are the most racist among us...

  • Elevated Soul

    Can't the same be said about Black people who were happy that 0bama was elected?

    You have to get out of your own political.Stop believing,only racists voted for President Trump. I'm a Black Independent and i voted for him with pride because he will be about the people.

    The Clinton's favorite color is green which is why they fought so hard to get back in the white-house.

  • Elevated Soul

    She may still be in handcuffs....Don't fall for liberal media manipulation.

    I believe President Trump move is a strategic move to keep her from being charged,so that 0bama can't pardon her.

  • Julia Lyons

    Exactly. I was in shock with the ease that he used the word. He did not qualify it with, "Excuse me for what I am about to say...." He was very callous in his use because the word is a part of his everyday narrative.

  • barbeez

    The more we put it in our music and use it on a daily basis, the more comfortable white people feel using it. Go to a high school and you'll see how many white kids who love rap use it. The bad thing is their fellow black students condone it. Glad to see that anchor put him in his place. He was trying to be slick and get black folks on his side. It backfired.

  • barbeez

    Good point. He didn't blink when he said it.

  • barbeez

    Journalist aren't trained. You learn from experience. She was thrown off by the man's comment but I think she's still emotional over Hillary losing and made his statement into a bigger deal than it needed to be.

  • http://disqus.com/ yoliewinecorporation

    Racist SOB didn't even flinch when using the N word goes to show that's the word he uses Frequently. Smh!! Brooke seriously!! Fake tears. You were more shock how bold this OLD mf was to use the N word.

  • Yup, I said it

    Trump has emboldened white people to be aggressive and outrageous and to say and act for shock value. We will now see how this affects the country. It will be like the government sponsored Roman death matches all over again.

  • GuestSTAR

    Shid, its not just white folk who use the ‘n’ word, you have other races, i.e., Asians, Mexicans etc…. calling one another that word. If someone
    were to randomly call them ‘Wetback’ or ‘Gook’ all he11 would break lose. I believe much of it comes from the Hip Hop culture being so mainstream and people hearing the word OFTEN, be it in rap lyrics, interviews given or blacks, so it becomes more acceptable to them. The more they hear it, the more ‘normal’ the word starts to sound and seems less offensive, TO THEM. I don't think that word is going anywhere tho.

  • Enter a valid username ?

    Yes just like calling women Bishes or hOos.. just crack em over the head if they call you that...

  • Enter a valid username ?

    Right!

  • Opinionated But Fair

    Please learn to not make assumptions and/or change topics.

    1)"Can't the same be said about Black people who were happy that 0bama was elected?"

    So what if it can? Does that make this not also bad?

    2)"You have to get out of your own political.Stop believing,only racists voted for President Trump"

    You have no idea what my political beliefs are and the quote YOU were responding to clearly stated "I definitely believe that SOME of them see his election as a victory for their causes". SOME doesn't mean that ONLY ppl who are racist voted Trump

    3)"The Clinton's favorite color is green which is why they fought so hard to get back in the white-house."

    Whether or not that's true...It's IRRELEVANT since the point was that white racists will be disappointed that TRUMP cares more about green than white power.

  • Opinionated But Fair

    "Liberal media manipulation" makes you sound like a puppet. You are just falling for "conservative media manipulation". All media is tainted and corrupt because it's run by humans. All humans have opinions and those color how they present their stories.

    I read the same story at least 4 times from 4 sources(at least 1 international) to sift through and get the truth.

  • GuestSTAR

    I believe it is a trap as wel, but the DEMS will fall for it, SMH. Trump is undisciplined, all over the place, like a 70 year old child with Attention Deficit Disorder. I hope Obama gives her a blanket pardon, so all the pseudo scandal BS can be laid to rest. It’s my understanding that she would have to admit to guilt somehow in order for Obama to pardon her.

  • Opinionated But Fair

    That is ridiculous. They go to college and take courses in journalism. They usually have internships as well.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I see a lot of people saying "He didn't flinch or wince when he said it"...who does these days? And you know what, that's our damn fault for making this word so mainstream. This is why to this day I don't use that word EVER. Not as a "term of endearment" or as a greeting, not in now way shape form or fashion. It just glides right off the tounge so easily for everyone and it's no longer sharp to the ear (unless you have to pretend to be overly offended so that your show doesn't receive any backlash that is.)
    Sad part is, he had valuable things to say and it's being sidelined now because he said the n word, Trump really did just appoint a white supremacist nationalist pig as his right hand man.
    Can I bring up someone else who is always using that word and nobody cares: DJ Khaled. He is Palestinian, N word rolls off his tounge left and right but hey I guess it doesn't matter as long as it's music. Oh please. Enough with the fake outrage.

    The yt cried because another yt said the n word? Okay. Not new or suprising. Yts have been comitting hate crimes out the arse since he won. He's hiring yt supremacists & hiking the tax for the middle class aka his core voters. The government is attacking the indigenous people of America & this was worth posting about.

    It amazing how many people can find fault with Baldwin's so-called delayed reaction to her guest's use of the n-word, when they have no reaction to the human-trash in their own lives.

  • Annaunki

    I have a dream that one day black people will take the word ni@@er and turn it around for the good instead of always crying, and weeping about it. to dam passive, people give this word to much strength, and white folks know it will get to you, that's why they always using it. it should mean nothing to us by now...they called our ancestor this, hung them and beat them, and we still crying about. we like lil fcking kids to white folks, always crying, they called me ni@@er, they held up a nazi sign, look at the confederate flag they got, dam black folks, they created this chyt, you think they ain't gonna use it to their advantage especially if they know you gonna go home, set up a march/rally and fall on your knees and pray, just to get the same results. it makes no sense , I wish black folks snap out of this Chyt grow some balls and take charge, but as long as they see us forgiving every fcking thing they do, it will never end. stop giving them attention, praise when 2 of them do something good, cause they look at us as a whole, so look at them as a whole, so disgusted, stop this chyt and do something. I'm all in, I got called ni@@er but I don't even acknowledge it, it don't hurt me nor offend me. they just be standing there looking stupid waiting on me to say something i just walk on, dont even give them eye contact, they hate when u ignore them, THEY FCKING HATE IT.

    Remember the days when YT people were afraid to be aggressive to anybody Black? The mere thought of some Black person engaging a cracker was enough to make them shake. Once I was in an exclusive store o pay my bill and a snotty YT clerk ignored me until she saw fit to turn around. I waited for her to acknowledge me and I slammed my fist down on the counter and said in no uncertain terms that she had better not ever do that again. As she moved towards the phone i reminded how how many shades of dead she could be before security could arrive on scene. She cowered back in her hole and apologized. The the words meant nothing of course it warned her ass to think twice before disrespecting the next Black customer.

  • Andrea Williams

    Unless I'm missing something here, I didn't get the impression that he said the n-word trying to be ugly. It seems to me that he was making a point about Trump's man, Steve Bannon, who is racist to the core. I thought his whole point was that if Trump doesn't want to be seen as racist, then he shouldn't have hired Steve Bannon a man known for using the n-word ( and every other word). That is what I took away from that. And what is there to cry about? She has never been called the n-word in her life. Leave the tears for the people the use of the word really affects.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I was going to add that but I got distracted.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Crocodile tears I'm sure. She doesn't really care about the word nig she just want some attention.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I don't think so.

  • just saying

    The word has been mainstream..I thought..it didn't start when it got put in music

  • Nonya Bizness

    I understand what you're saying. My issue with the word with the A on the end is more so the people who use the word, since my perspective is the word was "changed" to take it from something evil to something else. If it was to be taken BACK from the yt man, and it was only used in it's original form against one race of people, then it should only be used in it's "altered form" by that same race of people, imo.Of course when the word is in music, it ends with an A. When it's used that way, the only people who should be using it, imo, are Black folks, and I'm not Black, so it won't leave my mouth. That may be hypocritical for me to still listen to the music, but I like Pac, Too Short, Suga Free, Messy Marv, and that word isn't in my vocabulary, so I just go silent. I don't think ANYONE should use that word if they're not Black. That's not saying you have to use the word if you're Black. If you're Black and you choose not to use the word, you don't have to. I just live in Northern California where everyone, Hispanic, White, Latino, Filipino, Pacific Islander, etc, uses it, and it really really bothers me, and I've gotten no where talking to these people about them using it, how disrespectful it is,talked to their Black friends sitting right next to them and asked them why they don't have a problem with it, and everyone looks at me like I'm the one with the issue. I was watching a video of the Kanye concert in Sac, and there was a big dude in the audience. He looked Samoan or something, with an expensive moth eaten Kanye shirt, ranting about this N word doing us like this, but he said the word, and everyone just sat there like bumps on a log. Maybe I'm too sensitive, maybe I'm too old, but all I heard was this non Black person saying that word with the A on the end. I didn't care what he was ranting about. I told my friend and she was like "Girl it's Sac, you know how it is." Yes I do, and that's the problem. I don't hang out with non Black people who say the N word with an A. They repulse me.It's a given that people that say the word with an R are evil. That goes without saying. But people who say the word with an A are disrespectful to Black people, Black people who are no longer here. Black people who died at the hands of evil white people, who were raped, beaten, hung, things so inhumane, and they're over here saying things things trying "to be cool". Be cool by educating yourself. Be cool by not trying to be like everyone else. These non Black people saying this word now don't have any ancestors that went through any struggles or atrocities that they need to say this word, that they need to take a word back and make it their own. Sorry for the rant, and I don't even know if I even explained myself.

  • Opinionated But Fair

    I guess you are allergic to logic.

    Reading news from multiple sources because I'm smart enough to not rely on one is a "spoon fed thought process". But you pulled the "liberal media" card?

    Poor thing....Another one of those ppl who attempts to be a free thinking intellectual but can only scrape up enough intelligence to be an illogical finger pointer making dumb accusations based on ASSumptions. Have fun with that. I'm done with you.

    Mark Twain has a couple of gems for you.

    "Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience."

    "Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference."

  • Opinionated But Fair

    I never use racial slurs against anyone. I don't think hypocrisy is ok in any form. I don't use the n word and I don't want anyone else to. However, I can't control anyone else but myself and I don't try to. I try to lead by example.

  • Opinionated But Fair

    I've been called an n word and it didn't faze me. I laughed at one guy who was watching for my (as he thought)inevitable blowup and HE ended up losing his cool.

    I didn't have to say a word because others who were nearby (none of them black btw)handled him with a quickness. He was on his a$$ on the ground, I was getting hugs and sympathetic words and he was just so stuck and lost.

    He really thought it was about to be 1960s Mississippi in that store with all the white ppl jumping on me but he found out they were ALL on my side and I didn't have to lower myself in any way.

    Even if nobody had come to my aid, I was going to pay him dust. Broke white ppl are the only white ppl I've ever seen be racist. I move in successful circles and all they care about is my accomplishments....not my color.

    As a native of Chicago(moved away years ago but that's home), I find it soooooooo frustrating that not enough energy is put into the REAL issues in the inner city there.

  • Opinionated But Fair

    I disagree with the part about hitting someone. Words don't give you the right to hit unless they were words of threats of violence and you fear for your safety.

    You can respond in kind if you see fit by using harsh words in retaliation, but don't escalate it.

  • Yup, I said it

    Its good that CNN checked that language because as a network they will not allow their show to be used as a platform for racist ,bigoted or sexist slurs. If they allow slurs to be used, what ever the context, then they will have to allow all slurs and we know the lbgt and other races and religious communities aren't gonna stand for that nonsense. Unfortunately we can come to a consensus within the black community.

    Too many black people already in jail over bull.

  • Malcom Flex

    Oh ... you're another jailbird?? Sorry, I don't know a thing about it never been arrested and I don't fight over nonsense.

  • UGHHHH

    White people do not phase me when they say that...it shows how much of a punk they are. They are trying to continue to keep reaping the ill rewards of their ancestors. They are afraid of losing their privilege. Afraid of having to actually learn instead of getting the hook up from their peers. That white privilege card is about to expire. #blackandbrownpeopleriseup

  • PAG

    Haven't seen her cry at all the racist chit Trump says. All you hear her say is the "other side," and make excuses for his behavior. He was using the word in context. Chill out white girl...

  • PAG

    Exactly!

  • PAG

    You weren't missing anything! She's fake. Haven't seen her cry yet at all the racist chit Trump says. Did she cry when Trump had that press conference and said Putin called the Obama the n word? And Trump supporter, Paris, who was on her show is just as fake. I have yet heard him denounce all the racism coming from Trump.

  • Opinionated But Fair

    It's frustrating trying to explain that to some ppl....They think you are making excuses for racism...
    Smh....

  • Opinionated But Fair

    Thank you!

    There is no excuse for racism. Racism is breed by ignorance and fear. But we do ourselves and our forefathers a grave disservice when we use racism as a crutch or an excuse to underachieve, or as an excuse to incite violence.

    As screwed up as America is, there are plenty of opportunities to succeed here.

  • http://www.keenready.com KeenReady.COM ?

    I agree right along with ya!

  • jussaying

    there are successful white people who are prejudice as well. it just manifests differently. usually in microaggressions.

  • Lisa daniels

    He is the poster child for can't have your ? and eat it too.

  • Andrea Williams

    Who is the Trump supporting "coon" in the corner?

  • MistaO

    Maybe, just maybe she has an understanding of just how damaging the word is. Unfortunately, and sadly too many supposed Black people are devoid of the same level of consciousness. Cheers to Brooke!

  • PAG

    Coon? I prefer to call him an apologist. He excuses Trump's racism.

  • bella28498 .

    That bish fake as hayell... Wp slay me she crying acting like she care but probably the biggest racist around ? I don't trust Wp period

  • Kesha

    Bish your way of thinking is what makes us look bad.

  • Aldo Abruzzi

    You're supposed to be a mature adult and a professional journalist. Hearing a WORD brings you to tears? What a ridiculous drama act.... get over yourself!

    This chick better never listen to rap music. She'll hear that word so much that she'll literally drown in her own tears.

  • bella28498 .

    naw wp make america look bad stfu

  • Kesha

    Naw I don't think so

  • Andrea Williams

    I'll bet he won't excuse Trump's racism and he will see it differently when it is directed at him, as did another black Trump supporter who had his behind handed to him at a Trump rally.

  • bella28498 .

    even if I wasnt alive racism will still exist...wp is what make america look bad, not me......I dont trust wp they are the enemy.

  • Kesha

    That's too harsh girl. You need an open mind

  • bella28498 .

    after I am dead and gone racism will still exist and wp will be fake as hayell. so your theory is wrong

  • bella28498 .

    yea ok wake up lady.

  • Kesha

    I wake up to the truth, we kill each other the most, not the wp

  • bella28498 .

    every community kill their own ppl be quiet......wp kill each other as well. I will give you an example my brother and I can fight all day but once you step in we will kick ur as s. Just because there is violence in the black community does not mean we should allow wp to come in and have their way with us. Vice versa there is just as much white on white crime so according to ur theory bp should go in their communities killing them. you make no sense.

  • Kesha

    In black communities the percentages are higher of as far as violent crime goes. Get real.

  • bella28498 .

    yea because we make up only 13 percent in america which make it seem like our numbers are higher....actually the white on white crime is much higher when u factor in actual percentages. now u get real...wp are the most violent MF on planet earth.....

  • Kesha

    Well you think what you want. I don't know what you want me to say.

  • bella28498 .

    I dont want you to say anything....you didn't have to say anything. America was built on racism, they damn near killed off the native americans and they still fu king with them. Wp dont want peace they want to maintain control by any means necessary. Bp been asking for peace and unity with those savages from he beginning of time and they still hate.

  • Kesha

    Well I just can't have that hatred

  • bella28498 .

    what I am saying isn't hatred its facts..... and me being aware of my surrounding and not trusting wp isn't hatred it is just being smart....wp have done nothing to show why they should be trusted by anyone of color. I understand the nature of the beast and I am not hear for their shenanigans. Actually wp hate bp, bp just want them to leave us alone and eventually as a whole we will get fed up because they keep over stepping their boundaries with everyone.

  • Kesha

    Am I supposed to agree with you? What should I do for you now?

  • bella28498 .

    um did u forget u replied to something I said....dont need for u to agree.

  • Kesha

    Ok, what do you need then? You know more than me I guess.

  • bella28498 .

    I want you to arm yourself.

  • PrettyMe

    White on white crime is actually higher. It's 83%

  • Kesha

    Whatever you wanna think girl

  • PrettyMe

    It's called facts. Why would you want to be IGNORANT to facts. You're defiant and dumb.

  • Kesha

    Well I am on punishment now so I guess you helping

  • PrettyMe

    That's why people don't like listening to fools like you. You don't anything and you're close minded but want to teach other people stuff. Get out of your own way, you don't and can't know everything. It's not possible. Grow up little girl.

  • PrettyMe

    OK Troll.

  • Kesha

    I been hearing alot of that mam

  • Kesha

    To be honest I'm not a troll. I'm bein 100, big sis got me locked down

  • PrettyMe

    But boo are you listening

  • PrettyMe

    If it walks like a duck...quacks like a duck

  • Kesha

    No man, not according to you or sis

  • Kesha

    I'm not miss, outta high school a year but still gotta listen to elders

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Fakery.

  • Tea??

    She knew that those tears could be a career defining moment and thrust her into fame

  • Opinionated But Fair

    I'm not saying they aren't....I'm just speaking of my personal experience. I've been very blessed in that regards.

  • blackracehypocrite

    Lol. What a clown. Fake outrage and fake emotions to try and throw racial red meat to race baiting, perpetually offended victims. No context whatsoever, just a pathetic attempt to jnxite more hatred. I personally hope blacks and feminists continue to be disingenuine about these discussions. Its liberal hypocrites like this that turned someone like me against Democrats and the false narratives of the liberal-biased agenda.

  • jussaying

    yeah i know not refuting what you said at all ???

  • Taylor Shirene

    More white tears for white TV. Where were those tearsd when James Means, Trayvon Martin, and Sandra Bland were being murdered because they were black? The old white dude use the word in proper context, why be offended?

  • Elle

    Yeahhhh, I don't think it was that serious. Ole boy was quoting someone else to make his point. But can you see the irony? They are both DISGUSTED that the panelist had the audacity to repeat the word..but what about the fact that someone potentially appointed to Trump's cabinet actually SPOKE the word out loud..in public..?

  • SuggaB

    Boom.

  • Opinionated But Fair

    Lol I just wanted to be clear I'm not delusional like racism doesn't exist at all above a certain tax bracket....

  • Jayde da Blade

    Lol she mad?!
    Think how we the people feel daily.
    So Dry ur tears hun.

  • The Avenger

    Over blown as usual. Before this presidency is over, that word will become the norm again, as will faggot. .Trump is not a champion for blacks, gays or anyone who is not white and hetrosexual. He has deliberately appointed people who will change the laws to give advantages only to whites. You will see...........

  • deanbarr

    She is an idiot. When quoting someone the quote should be exact and accurate. This woman is a bleeding heart liberal who would censor everything she doesn't like.
