Tuesdays edition of PBS NewsHour featured a discussion about the differences in the experiences of black journalists as contrasted with their colleagues. One of the guests, Los Angeles Times Executive Editor Norman Pearlstine, talked about how one of the active debates we had over the past week was about the use of the word looting to describe the destruction of the property that has taken place at several riots that have occurred in the wake of the death of George Floyd. Pearlstine went on to talk about how the seemingly innocent term is actually profoundly racist.
Dorothy Tucker, the President of the National Association of Black Journalists, argued that the term riot was also racist.

Gerbilists being gerbilists.
MSM = Enemy #1
Racist? I say get the EEOC over to the riots to make sure no one is denied access based on their race, gender, religion..yada yada yada.
EQUAL OPPORTUNITY LOOTING NOW!
What he is unconsciously admitting is that most of the looters are black, so it is racist to criticize any “redistributive justice” that they might be enforcing.
Teens engaged in non traditional shopping.
Its only looting when you own it. If they came to these puke (woke) houses and borrowed what they wanted and burned the place to the ground it would be looting
Is “undocumented shopping” an acceptable term?
How about pillaging and plundering?
Los Angeles Times Executive Editor Norman Pearlstine actually is committing an act of racism by trying to substitute a euphemism for “looting”, denying what is a statutory crime and an affront against society.
He is really trying to cover up and/or deny that a crime has taken place, regardless of the obvious physical, video, photographic, and documentary evidence.
This constitutes a “lie” in normal parlance, and serves no purpose other than a kind of condescending paternalism towards rioters, regardless of race. No one is helped by such fraud.
White bread is racist.
Capitalist material liberation.
Breaking and Taking.
White bread is racist.
Much like the pure driven snow...
LOOTERS SHOULD BE SHOT ON SIGHT
Well we could swap it out with soot. Make those BLM people happy.
Looting is a Black thing , get over it ?
Loot the LA Times offices and printing plants and burn the buildings to the ground. FU Pearlstine!
Wonder what Ms. Tucker would think or react if a group of poor whites from Appalachia were to break into her residence and help themselves to her things.
Would it be looting then, O media hypocrite?
