Skip to comments.Fox News Won't Fire Black Racist Commentator (Jehmu Greene)

Fox News contributor Jehmu Greene, a black feminist, says on her Twitter page that love can build a bridge. But racism, not love, was on display last Thursday when she called conservative Tucker Carlson a bow-tying white boy.
Greene, a Democratic Party operative who was the national director of Project Vote, a group with close ties to the corrupt ACORN organization, has not offered a public apology. There is no indication that her financial relationship with Fox News has suffered as a result of the racial outburst.
Jehmu apologized to Tucker by phone after the segment, Irena Briganti, Group Senior Vice President at FOX News Channel & FOX Business Network, tells Accuracy in Media.
This is apparently the end of the matter for Fox News.
Robert Lifson of American Thinker pointed out that if Tucker Carlson had ever called Louis Farrakhan a bow-tying black boy, he would be out of a job.
Whats more, Greene said on the air that she had not done anything wrong.
Hey, hey, hey, reacted Carlson, at the slur. You cant, wait. Whoa, whoa, whoa You can use name calling all you like, but youre ignoring the truth.
I didnt call you a name, replied Greene.
So calling somebody a white boy is acceptable to Greene.
As a Fox News Contributor, Greene is on the Fox News payroll and is paid to be a regular commentator on different programs.
AIM had asked Fox News spokesperson Irena Briganti if Greene would be fired for making the racist remark. That is when Briganti informed us about the private apology, which is apparently supposed to suffice.

Sounds like a good reason to boycot the worst news organization around. As if I needed a reason. Fox News has jumped so many sharks that I stopped counting.
I voted a long time ago, with no more viewing of Fox. As a matter of fact I do not get my news from TV at all, except at the local level.
Tucker Carlson shoud have replied “Are you talking to me, colored girl?” Turnabout is fair play.
I turn off Fox (and any other station) when they put jerks like this bag, Sharpton, Jackson, etc. No need to give these idiots airtime nor Fox ratings.
I'll buy a ticket, front row pls.
Pretty sure she wasn’t only targeting Mr. Carlson with “folks like you, voters like you, bow-tying white boys.”
On another Fox News show Jehmu Greene wore an orange dress and sat in the “leg chair”. She looked like the Great Pumkin.
She has the biggest butt I have ever seen on tv.
NO! NO! NO!
KEEP HER ON
WE NEED TO SEE THE “OTHER SIDE”
I'm just about as sick of Fox News as I am the others these days. Hypocrites.
This is one of those times; that "I know you are; but what am I" does not work. Too bad for that; and as well; the fact that this racist; still has a job at Fox News.
Ihave never seen the so called “lady” butt it is hard to believe that she is wider than moosechelle.
Of course she gets a pass, for obvious reasons. But if a white commentator had made a similar remark, he/she would be gone.
Jehmu? Isn’t that the name of the Killer Whale at Sea World?
Has anyone ever seen an African-American fired from any affirmative action job ever? The rules and the work procedures are only for the white employees.
Fox is required to hire a certain percent minorities. They can't be fired no matter what.
The only good shows on Fox news are on Fox News Business and they are Stossel and Lou Dobbs...
I wonder how long they will last....
My brother-in-law’s father described the transport of African slaves to the West as “America’s curse.” Wow, was he ever right.
