VIDEO: Bill Maher slams Fox News for ‘concern trolling’ African American crime rates

Bill Maher found it very strange that Republicans are all of a sudden so concerned about black-on-black crime and violence in Chicago. He hit Fox News in particular for carrying this talking point, which Business Insider’s Josh Barro described as “concern-trolling” from the right.

August 2, 2013 – Bill Maher found it very strange that Republicans are all of a sudden so concerned about black-on-black crime and violence in Chicago. He hit Fox News in particular for carrying this talking point, which Business Insider’s Josh Barro described as “concern-trolling” from the right. The discussion then turned to police actions in black communities, and Barney Frank clashed with artist Jay Z over whether black communities need or want more police presence.

Frank said the GOP does a disservice by cutting budgets that leads to police forces getting cut, while Jay Z argued the real problem is social and economic imbalance, “a problem that no amount of police can solve.” Occupy activist Alexis Goldstein brought up stop-and-frisk, but Frank argued that while it may be abusive, black people want more and better policing.

Jay Z shot back, “More jobs would be better than police.” He tussled with Frank for a while, only for Goldstein to jump in to decry “institutionalized racism” in the police and reminding the audience about police crackdowns on OWS and no one “stopping and frisking Wall Street bankers.”

Maher brought up the Boston bombing to question the “police state,” saying that there was practically an army tracking down the bombers and the city was basically shut down.

Watch the exchange from Real Time with Bill Maher in the video below.

    Am I the only one who doesn’t understand why there are “Repeal Obamacare” ads all over this site and sites like aattp.org?

    I love Mr. Frank, but my load, could he shut the muck up? He made his point and just kept going.

    great discussion and panel….see THIS is what the debate should be. when you get rid of the conservative whackos you have real problems being discussed. you see there are more than 2 sides to a problem and the conservative side is NOT any side that improves the problem, it is an agenda to exploit a problem being used to manipulate the ignorant into voting against their own interests.

    They all made very good points, but my favorite and one of the most telling and accurate was the one made by Goldstein when she said, “they’re not stopping and frisking Wall Street bankers and they ave tons of cocaine on them.” ROFLMMFAO!

    Programs like AdSense post advertisements based on the presence of certain words and phrases. So, an article slamming Scientology is likely to have an ad FOR Scientology. An article in support of Obama gets an ad about repealing the ACA or impeaching him.

    I get logistically why, but… wouldn’t the host site want to avoid that somehow?

    I think that everything said made a lot of sense. But, what
    about this? what if you added a little information? I am not saying
    your information is not good, but suppose you added something to possibly get a person’s attention? I mean VIDEO:
    Bill Maher slams Fox News for ‘concern trolling’ African American crime rates – DeadState is a little plain.
    You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post headlines to get people to click.

    You might add a related video or a related picture or two
    to grab readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
