Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson, who is also an author and radio host, was being interviewed on TV the other day by NBC’s Chuck Todd in regard to the recent riots in Charlotte, NC. During the interview, Dyson stated that the police need to dispense with the false notion that a black person is more likely to commit a crime than a white person. Todd allowed Dyson to make this statement without challenging him on it. In effect, he was enabling a demagogue. Todd should have responded by asking, “What false notion?” According to every available statistic on the subject, black people do, in fact, commit more crimes in this country than white people do. The truth is a pesky thing to people like Dyson, who choose to go around with their heads in the sand. I call him a demagogue because he is a reality denier and race bater. I can only assume that Todd is such a slave of political correctness that he couldn’t bring himself to confront Dyson on his false assertion, even though he probably knew better. Shame on Todd, and shame on the American media.
