“Our People”: FOX News Anchor Used Morning Show for Farrakhan Infomercial, Per Boyfriend’s Directive; May Have Been Paid by Nation of Islam–VIDEO Included

By Debbie Schlussel
**** SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO & UPDATES ****
A prominent FOX News/NewsCorp Anchor used her network’s Detroit morning show, which she hosted, to promote Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan in a 20-minute infomercial. Sources say then-anchor, Fanchon Stinger (now fired), did this at the behest of her boyfriend, Rayford Jackson a/k/a Rayford Jackson Muhammad, who was identified by the Nation of Islam’s Final Call newspaper as one of the top national leaders of its “Millions More Movement,” the movement Stinger and Farrakhan were promoting on the air. The FOX 2 News Morning Show, which Stinger hosted, was and remains Detroit’s top rated morning news show. It’s a sad lesson in what is happening in all newsrooms around America. You, the viewer, are being pimped.

“Our People”:

FOX Anchor Fanchon Stinger and Married Nation of Islam Boyfriend Rayford Jackson Used Morning News Show for Louis Farrakhan Infomercial

Sources also say boyfriend Jackson directed the FOX anchor’s softball interview, which mentioned not a single iota about Farrakhan’s many racist, anti-Semitic, and bigoted statements against every ethnic group imaginable. Instead, Stinger instructed the FOX 2 News audience that they “misunderstand” the Farrakhan message and thanked Farrakhan “for your commitment to Our People.” The sources also say they believe Stinger may have received payment from the Nation of Islam or the Millions More Movement, through her Stinger Strategies, Inc. company. The interview was so gushing, the Nation of Islam’s Millions More Movement posted it on its website, which it does not do with most other interviews, which frequently ask Farrakhan about his statements calling Judaism “a gutter religion,” Jews “wicked” and “a synagogue of Satan,” and Hitler “a great man.”
Here is the video of Fanchon Stinger’s nauseating “interview” (pander-view) of Louis Farrakhan, broken into two parts. In the first video, she tells us how we “misunderstand” Farrakhan’s “message” and “vision” and in the second part, she says to Farrakhan, “Thank you for your commitment to Our People.” Even Al-Jazeera’s been tougher on Farrakhan. Watch the whole thing (the videos are about 6 minutes each), and you won’t need ipecac:


THANKS to Fred Taub of Boycott Watch for technical help with these videos

Now, here are a couple of brief refreshers on Farrakhan’s message, which Fanchon Stinger thinks you and I “misunderstand”:


Stinger’s interview with Farrakhan was so drooling and pandering, the only thing missing was her asking Farrakhan to unzip his pants so she could Lewinskyize him. And perhaps that happened during the commercial break. Based on the “interview,” I wouldn’t count that out.
Stinger told the FOX 2 News audience that they must “hear Farrakhan for yourself.” Well, I heard Louis Farrakhan for myself at a Detroit-area mosque, the Islamic Center of America, in November 1998. And for the first time in my life, I understood how my grandparents felt as Jews in Nazi Europe. I heard him call Jews “forces of evil” and “forces of Satan,” in addition to calling for Jihad against them, Whites, and Christians–to the fevered, rabid applause and standing ovations of Black and White Muslim men and women. I wrote about this frightening experience in The Detroit News before it became the Detroit Newsistan. That Stinger used her valuable position of influence as host of Detroit’s top news show to promote this vile man is beyond disgusting. That FOX 2 News–owned and operated by FOX News/Newscorp allowed her to is an untenable outrage.
Yes, the issue is not just that Stinger unethically and uncritically pimped FOX News’ Detroit audience for her boyfriend and his man Farrakhan, without her noting that she was sleeping with at least one of ‘em. It’s that FOX 2 News management, News Director Dana Hahn and General Manager Jeff Murri, knew of Stinger’s relationship with Jackson at the time and knew of his high stature in the Nation of Islam. But they allowed her to utilize their airwaves to conduct this sickening interview over a large portion of their morning show. Farrakhan was on for several segments, which ran from 7:50 a.m. to 8:10 a.m. Stinger repeatedly urged viewers to go to the Farrakhan event she was promoting. THIS IS NOT JOURNALISM. This is advertising and advocacy. Murri and Hahn sat by while it happened. They need to go.
I cannot imagine Monica Gayle or Ron Savage, who are White anchors on FOX 2 News, being allowed to have David Duke on the show for a single minute, much less what amounted to over 12 minutes of gushing airtime for Farrakhan. I cannot imagine them saying to Duke on the air: “Thank you for your commitment to ‘Our People.’” But FOX 2 management allowed Stinger to do so with his Black counterpart Farrakhan. I thought the station’s slogan was “FOX 2 News, Working For You.” NOT “FOX 2 News, Working for ‘Our People.’” I left messages with both Hahn and Murri over this interview back in 2005, but they never returned my calls. They did not care that it is a blatant conflict of interest that Stinger was sleeping with the man who was a key national figure in Farrakhan’s “Millions More Effort.” As pseudonymmed FOX 2 News reporter “Scott Lewis” noted last week, Stinger’s relationship with Rayford Jackson was “considered her personal business.”
After I started the ball rolling, FOX News/NewsCorp finally fired Stinger, the face of its Detroit operation, on Thursday. But after FOX 2 News announced the departure of Stinger–a Muslim convert who had a multi-year relationship with the Rayford Jackson, the man at the center of an FBI investigation into bribery of the Detroit City Council over a sludge contract–I wondered how long it would take before the many Detroit media figures who overlooked her transgressions would start the sympathy train over her and try to rehabilitate her.
Well, the rehabilitation campaign started swiftly. On Saturday, The Detroit Newsistan ran a sob story article on Stinger–who accepted countless money from both Syanagro (the sludge contractor) and her married boyfriend Jackson (for whom she hid hundreds of thousands of dollars in assets in her name). The article, entitled “Unlikely Stumble” (when what Stinger did wasn’t a stumble and it wasn’t unlikely–it was a pattern of deliberate, dishonest behavior) quoted colleagues and friends lamenting how “hurt” this unethical journalist is, and quoted a Jewish man, Mort Meisner (whom I know), saying Stinger is of “sterling integrity.” Apparently, Meisner has never seen this Farrakhan interview. If Stinger’s buddy Farrakhan had his way, Mort would be in line behind me for the ovens.
Then, on Sunday, Detroit Free Press columnist Brian Dickerson praised Stinger for her beauty and for exiting FOX 2 “gracefully.” Um, Brian, I don’t think she had a choice. And it was hardly what anyone–except the beauty-struck Dickerson–would call, “graceful.”
As for the beauty thing, that–in addition to her race, gender, and religion–are part of why she got away with the multiple journalistic transgressions she openly committed, for so long. Everyone who knew better and was in a position to do something looked the other way, dismissing this blatant conflict of interest the way her colleague, pseudonymmed “Scott Lewis” did, as “her personal business.”
FOX 2 News, Working for Farrakhan. Not for you.
***
Stinger is scheduled to address the media today in her first PR move to get back on the air as a reporter. But don’t bet on her addressing why she put Louis Farrakhan, one of the top racists in America, on the air and drooled over him, literally ad nauseam.
Also don’t expect her to address why she set up a company, which she claims was to do media buys for Synagro, the company her Nation of Islam boyfriend was involved with and in connection with which, he is now at the center of an FBI bribery investigation of the Detroit City Council.
More about Fanchon Stinger’s “sterling integrity”: My sources say there is no record of Synagro ever doing any media buys, and that this was only the “cover story” for the real purpose of her then newly-formed company, Stinger Strategies, LLC. My sources say Stinger was going to use the company to launder money and hide assets for Rayford Jackson Muhammad, just like she did with the almost $1,000,000 in cars he registered in her name, with her acquiescence.
Fanchon Stinger should be ashamed, but she isn’t. She will be lucky not to be indicted. But the whole thing is an indictment of FOX 2, its news operation, and its parent company FOX News/NewsCorp.
**** UPDATE: Fanchon Stinger released a carefully crafted (by her lawyers) BS statement about how she’s innocent. Yeah, innocent of putting people with whom she has illicit relationships on the air and gushing over them, and innocent of taking money from a company she covers and laundering assets for others? I don’t think so. She’s definitely got chutzpah, though–having the gall to call those, including me, who exposed her dishonesty, “malicious.” The only thing malicious was her pimping of her Detroit audience. Malicious AND negligent. She’s now claiming she “can’t” talk until the federal investigation is over, which is interesting, since everyone else involved in the Synagro scandal–everyone who is innocent–is, indeed, talking.
**** UPDATE #2: Hey, Fanchon Stinger. I DID hear Farrakhan for myself. Here’s what I wrote about it, in the Detroit News (the grammatical error within it–in the sentence about my grandparents–was inserted by incompetent DNews op-ed page editor Richard Burr, not me) on November 20, 1998:
dnewsfarrakhanarticle.jpg

**** UPDATE #3: They don’t exactly work too quickly at FOX 2 News. The video bio of Fanchon Stinger is still up at the station’s site as of 12:20 p.m. Eastern Time.

Only in Detroit, dhimmi capital of the US. Why is this woman not wearing a tablecloth over her head if she’s a Muslim. Or is she just a useful idiot for the NOI?

lexi on July 15, 2008 at 12:16 pm

Excellent work, Debbie. Excellent!
Sometimes I am beginning to think you are the one and only person in the media who has any ethics and is honest.
Those supposed newspaper articles, especially the Dickerson puffery, expose how silly and hypocritical the press has become. Since she’s pretty she deserves a pass, Dickerson?
Nice to see Stinger is playing the victim card…and you can bet the race card is very soon to follow. She’s black, she’s a woman, and she is very pretty. I’m sure Oprah has her a special show already booked.
“Out people”?!?!? Wow, that is so blatantly obnoxious and disgusting to me.

Jeff_W on July 15, 2008 at 12:18 pm

I should have previewed, it’s “Our People” not “Out…”
Oh, BTW, I think she’ll be back. They will “suspend” her and she will return, unfortunately.
She has it all going for her, she’s a hot babe, she’s black, and that appeals to black people and white people. Many upper to middle class white people love people like her and Oprah because they give you a safe way to show you are a “nice person.”

Jeff_W on July 15, 2008 at 12:22 pm

You’ve giving em competition. The MSM operates on its own shallow little island and until now, they haven’t had to pay attention what the critics – and their customers – think of them. Its the only business in which respect for the customer is not a matter of habit. No other business could afford to alienate people it served. But that’s going to change for the MSM with the slow collapse of its media monopoly. These people have been the gatekeepers for a long time. Now their true nature is being exposed for all to see. Keep up the good work, Debbie!

NormanF on July 15, 2008 at 12:31 pm

Good job Debbie. When is this going to be picked up by the minions at WDIV and WXYZ. Why are they not shoving a mic in this woman’s face like they do with other people? Half the time they will shove a mic in your face and they have absolutely none of the facts but this woman is being offered a lot of media protection. The truth obviously in Detroit will NOT set you free.
[C: YOU'RE SO RIGHT. THEY'RE BENDING OVER BACKWARDS TO PROTECT HER. THAT'S BECAUSE THEY HAVE A DIFFERENT STANDARD FOR THEIR FELLOW LIBERAL MEDIA CRUSADERS THAN THEY DO FOR THE REST OF US. THEY'RE SPECIAL--BETTER THAN US. AND ALSO, THEY ALL CONSTANTLY SEEK JOBS FROM COMPETING NEWS OPERATIONS, SO THEY HAVE A CONFLICT OF INTEREST IN REFUSING TO ADEQUATELY COVER THE STORY, SO THEY WON'T BURN BRIDGES AT FOX 2. TOTAL HYPOCRITES. ALL OF 'EM. DS]

caitlynn on July 15, 2008 at 12:36 pm

Yeah we should all meet with MINISTER Farahkunt and judge him. This clown should be held accountable for the black on white hate crimes that happen all over the country everyday. Put a pig in a dress, he’s still a f’ in pig. How nice and calm and grandfatherly he tries to come off. Makes me sick. Glad they sacked that little idiot he’s sitting next to.

samurai on July 15, 2008 at 1:02 pm

I’ve always laughed at Louis Farrakhan, and all of his serious looking body guard stooges standing behind him. He reminds me of a small time despot, that’s always running scared of the people running him out of town with pitch forks.
Even the name: “Nation of Islam,” to me, is a joke, that’s run by a cultist clown!
Debbie, keep looking behind the veils, because if for no other reason, it shines light on faces.

Jackson Pearson on July 15, 2008 at 1:02 pm

Beware White workers/employees – your Black co-workers could be members of such groups,or at least total sympathizers who believe everything such groups spew, and would attack you at they consider the right situation.

OldSchoolW on July 15, 2008 at 1:08 pm

I was at the hospital on duty getting a prisoner stitched up from a self induced injury. The Dr. was black, the inmate was black and my partner was black. The inmate wasn’t what I’d call a huge problem but he and the doc hd a nice little talk about trying to be a better guy and getting his life turned around. Guess what. They had a nice talk about the message Farahkunt preached. If a doctor looks up to this clown think about all the other idiots that are desperate for a leader. My partner btw didn’t utter a single positive word about this race baiter. He’s a devout christian, father, warrior, and weight lifter. There is some hope.

samurai on July 15, 2008 at 1:36 pm

I have to admit that Im quite conflicted about this post. We’ve all seen the clips of Elijah Muhammad and Farrakhan calling out for the destruction of the jews, whites, gays etc. and such hate is deplorable. However in this interview, I have to agree with the substance of what he’s saying. Ignoring his previous history, background and obvious conflicts of interest, I find that his current message is extremely important. Young people of color are literally slaughtering each other in the streets and he’s trying to find a way to work against it. I cant say for sure if his message is “dont shoot each other, shoot whitey” or if its something altogether more positive. Supposedly he’s been “reborn” since his cancer experience and after having seen him speak at the Day of Atonement and Million Man March, its clear to me that Farrakhan believes that the final battle of Armageddon is near and is thus trying to find some sort of peace. So to make a long story short, its great that you exposed a corrupt relationship that has all kinds of possibilities for hidden agendas, but I think you missed the point. The Black community is in dire need of someone to look up to–no matter how imperfect–and that the roles models presented are no more or less corrupt than the band of thugs and murderers (mostly white) currently running our country.
[Y: HUH? HITLER HAD A SIMILAR MESSAGE FOR ARYANS AND DAVID DUKE HAS A SIMILAR MESSAGE FOR WHITES. SO, WE SHOULD JUST FORGET THE RACIST AND BIGOTED THINGS THEY SAID AND DID BECAUSE OF THAT MESSAGE OF "EMPOWERMENT"? PUH-LEEZE. DS]

Yojimbot on July 15, 2008 at 2:14 pm

Thanks for keeping the lights on this situation, Debbie. As Caitlyn points out–it is telling and sad how the fellow “fraternal members” of the local TV and radio outlets basically give each other passes like many police officers do for their brothers in law enforcement on traffic offenses.
Let’s all take notice here –as Debbie has pointed out–SHE IS SAYING THE SAME THINGS about Farrakhan and Fox 2/Stinger, etc that SHE HAS SAID FOR YEARS! THESE PEOPLE HAVE NO EXCUSE.
Yojimbot–you write:
“Ignoring his previous history, background and obvious conflicts of interest, I find that his current message is extremely important.”
WRONG–we don’t IGNORE anyone’s history and background. If a man disowns his former racism, he may deserve a hearing–but Looie Farrakhan has disowned NOTHING–his followers are all complicit in his racism and jibberish. Yojimbot–WAKE UP BRO.

BB on July 15, 2008 at 2:52 pm

Some points, for what they’re worth:
1. The producers of the morning show would have been the ones that let the interview run between two separate shows- 7am and 8am. Who are those producers? Are they still there?
2. They hire anchors because they’re attractive, not because they’re smart. My guess is either there were no questions for Stinger to read, or the producer/s gave her those softball questions. So anyone can manipulate an interview if they are so motivated.
3. How much are the execs at Fox 2 paid? If they’re inexperienced in their jobs, well, the network might keep them because they’re saving $$$
4. As for the “our people” comment, looking at the kinds of stories that the station covered, I always assumed that it was the “minority” station in town. So her comment could have been accurate.
I don’t think the network will bring her back to Fox. However, she may very well go to WDIV, where other former Fox talent, like Rhonda Walker, ended up.
[S: WRONG. FANCHON STINGER HAD EDITORIAL CONTROL OF THE SHOW BECAUSE FOX NEWS MANAGEMENT GAVE IT TO HER. A TRAINER SHE WAS "DATING" WAS ON THE MORNING SHOW, AND OFF OF IT, ONCE SHE DUMPED HIM. SHE DECIDED WHO GOT ON THE SHOW, AND CLEARLY IT INVOLVED THE HORIZONTAL INFLUENCES QUITE A BIT.
WHAT?--WHO SAID IT WAS "THE MINORITY STATION" IN TOWN? THE STATION'S SLOGAN IS NOT "FOX 2 NEWS. WORKING FOR THE HOOD." IF IT WAS THE MINORITY STATION, IT WOULDN'T BE THE FOX STATION. THAT'S JUST BUNK. THERE IS NOT EXCUSE FOR THIS. STOP TRYING TO MAKE EXCUSES FOR FANCHON STINGER'S UNETHICAL, REPREHENSIBLE BEHAVIOR. SHE'S A WHORE. PLAIN AND SIMPLE. AND THAT WHORING INFECTED THE NEWS. DS]

s on July 15, 2008 at 3:16 pm

My point, which you conveniently ignore, is that Farrakhan is no more or LESS of a racist than Bush or Cheney. Feel free to uncover their web of lies, back door deals, profiteering and wanton destruction of human life. Sure, Farrakhan has said some terrible things…but he didnt say them in that interview. In fact what he said makes alot of sense. So if you want to keep being devisive, go ahead and make blanket judgements, but if you actually want some dialogue, step down from you pedestal and acknowledge that to the Black community, Farrakhan, Obama or whoever will always be a more viable figure than Bush, McCain or whatever talking head they put in front of a camera.
and BB, Im more awake than you will ever be.

Yojimbot on July 15, 2008 at 3:42 pm

Hey Yojimbot:
I have no way of knowing for a fact if Bush or Cheney are actually racist. However, I doubt it. Simply based on the available evidence you have no idea either since there is no evidence they are racists, and lots of evidence they probably are not.
You stop making statements that make you feel good but are not based on any reality.
You might also wish to consider that simply based on statements they have made Farrakhan makes David Duke look like an integrationist.

Yojimbot writes:

Question bro: What point of yours am I conveniently ignoring? We have on the record the racist words out of Looie’s mouth and pen for years. What evidence exists to charge Cheney or Bush as racist?
You want to excuse Looie for his racism but charge Bush and Cheney as racist with no reason–no offense but you must be a moron. Farrakhan needs his own day of atonement to start repenting for all the hatred/victim mindset he has sown into the black community. We won’t ever see it, but that is where he can start.

BB on July 15, 2008 at 5:20 pm

Seems like the youtube videos of lous racist tirades have been taken down suddenly. Anyone else notice this?
As far as Yojimbot goes, with his unfounded claim that Bush and Cheney are racists somehow and at the same time giving a free pass to farafuck makes ANYTHING he says in the future irrelevant.

AME2 (AW/SW/NAC) Baker on July 15, 2008 at 6:00 pm

Yojimbo sounds like your typical grievance collecting, chip-on-the-shoulder black. Always looking for a white to place blame on. A mau-mauing shakedown artist. Bush and Cheney racists?? Bush has a lot of faults but racism is not one of them.

lexi on July 15, 2008 at 7:10 pm

“Beware White workers/employees – Your Black co-workers could be members of such groups, or at least total sympathizers who believe everything such groups spew, and would attack you at they consider right situation.”
WOW! Talk about “race-baiting”!!! Jesse and Rev. Al have their White counterparts I see. That statement reminds me of the Nazi propaganda against Jews in pre-WWII Germany. OldSchoolW, what “groups” are YOU a member of and what “Websites” do you frequent that you would cause you to write such vile racialist propaganda???

JibberJabber on July 15, 2008 at 7:16 pm

I once attended a NOI event where Farrakhan gave a speech. Debbie is telling the truth. He attacks Jews in a sneaky way. He said, “I am not the enemy of the Jews, but they have chosen to make me their enemy. If one of my enemies (meaning Jews) should happen to assassinate me, I know what you would do.”
The Fruit of Islam security guy sitting right behind me said in a voice seething with hate, “We’ll burn down their Synagogues! Burn em’ all down! Goddamn, right!” Other people in the audience were saying, “We’ll kill them.” At that moment it occurred to me that this is exactly what it must have been like to attend a Hitler speech in Nazi Germany. “Heil, Farrakhan!” should be the chant at NOI rallies.

FreethinkerNY on July 15, 2008 at 7:57 pm

Debbie – The Freep has repeatedly removed any of this context today. There is some guy I think named Joe writing the exact same thing and he has been “edited” 6 or 7 times. Been watching it all day pretty funny stuff.

caitlynn on July 15, 2008 at 8:19 pm

Go, go, Debbie. Racist blacks and guilty white libs can’t bring themselves to label ANY black person a racist no matter what. A fact that is proven by the posts on this web site and many more out there. Stinger is a whore and deserves no quarter, period dot.

samurai on July 15, 2008 at 9:12 pm

Jibber needs to realize that there ARE NO WHITE COUNTERPARTS to jesse and al (the justice bros). Name a single racist white propagandist that is as embraced by whites and the general public as either idiot.
Name one racist white head of an organization that has gone after pretty much every large American or Japanese company that they PERCEIVE to have committed an act of racial bigotry as either idiot has gotten rich doing.
Jibber needs to realize that not all white people are scared of writing this stuff or saying it publicly. I for one can defend my views with out racist overtones that the justice brothers and many other racists always lean on for support.

samurai on July 15, 2008 at 9:19 pm

lol how any one can say that Bush and Cheney are as racist as farrakhan…you must be delusional.
I have always thought that farrakhan was given too much leeway for what comes out of his mouth. It goes that way for a lot of things said by some blacks. It wouldn’t surprise me if this whole shebang with jesse jackson didn’t also include that he called obama the N word and the media is afraid to release it since it crucified people lately for saying variations. Such double standards.
I’m glad she is off the air. Hope it serves a good message to others who want to try this out.
samurai, it would be more respectful if you didn’t use the last 4 letters in farrakhan’s name towards women. I’m all for distortion of names and joking about them but I don’t think that variation put him down more than it puts down women.

samurai on July 15, 2008 at 10:59 pm

STAY on them DEBBIE!
Don’t give, loosen, this coverage…an inch.
I am SICK and TIRED of the “spin” whenever it involves a RACIST getting away with it by comments of “misunderstood” or “you have to put it in light of 200 years of oppression” or whatever else is the “cover comment” of the day.
Here is a NEWS FLASH…everything is NOT “Bush’s fault”, or “Cheney’s fault”, or “Americas fault”, or “The Souths’ Fault”, or “Christian People’s Fault”, or “Jewish People’s fault”, or “White Peoples Fault”, or “African American (why the hyphen by the way – aren’t we all supposed to be Americans if we are American Citizens? – just a thought) Peoples Fault”. MOST of the time we should hold the INDIVIDUALS Accountable! Yeah let’s try that “shoe on” for size. OUCH sometimes it hurts, some will cry, but TOO BAD. Enough is ENOUGH!
Just like that MILLION DOLLAR SCAM in Washington DC, concerning the “tax refunds”, there is money exchanging hands to the TUNE of “millions of dollars” and it is NOT between “Big Oil”…it is being taken for FALSE MISLEADING ACTIONS/COMMENTS.
I watch Fox a lot but I am SURE getting more and more suspicious by the LACK of coverage this SCAM has had. I guess when it involves the “media” it is “hush hush” and “pass the blame”.
I look forward to the TRUTH coming out in this matter. If she is “innocent” then AMEN HALLEJUAH. But there should be a TRIAL that is COVERED and TELEVISED…no “plea” deals that can/will get…spun into oblivion.
America, and it’s CITIZENS (ouch does that shoe fit?), deserve the truth – the whole truth – and nothing but the truth even when it involves “airing of dirty laundry”. Nuff said. NOSTRADAMUSLIVES by Jeffrey Schrembs

Oh my dear, dear “sunshine”, you are an idiot. “We” in Michigan do not “love” Fanchon. Do not speak for me. If Fanchon is such a crack reporter that you seem to give her credit for being, then she ought not to have gotten caught up in this crap. She should have done a little research about how getting involved in sludge hauling contracts can be detrimental to your career. Do you remember the sludge hauling contract that Coleman A. Young was caught up in? This has a familiar ring to it. Fanchon is just another cog in the NOL machine that is trying to destroy this country. Because she is beautiful, she thought she’d get out of this. The people in Detroit will defend her because of her beauty. Those who do are total morons. I can’t wait for the Oprah segment on her! What a love-fest that will be! It’s so funny watching how Debbie can nail these things! Great job, Debbie!

you are right on July 16, 2008 at 8:09 am

Samurai,
You make some excellent points. But race-baiting is race baiting, no matter who does and what kind of attention/support the protaganist may get. It’s one thing to have the courage to write about racial injustices and double standards you may witness in which Whites are the victims, but it’s another to threaten violence against and cause paranoia against a whole race of people, as OldSchoolW and a few other posters have constantly done on this site. And even more disturbing, I see more Whites getting into the whole “victimology” mentality, the same mentality that has held back Black folks for years.
I agree with Nostradamus….Stinger an an individual should be held accountable for her own actions, not Black folks as a whole. As a high-profile person in the media spotlight, her dumb ass should have known better. And of course, people with their own questionable race-baiting agendas will again use this incident to tar and feather ALL Blacks with the same brush. Watch what happens the next time Debbie post a negative story involving someone Black, and you’ll see exactly what I mean….

JibberJabber on July 16, 2008 at 11:21 am

To our dear readers,
Who are these people and what are they doing in our backyard? It appears that they belong to the group in American society that hate everything that is American yet enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, their happiness which is to denigrate and malign and cuss everything that is American, that only America can offer friends and enemies alike, that in their home country they all would have been history if they as much as said boo against their tyrannical regimes that under their shari’ah constitution rule their personal lives 24-hours a day, no ifs and buts about it – or else they loose an arm or a leg, not to mention their lives, literally.
Yet, we continue to love them, witnessed by their presence in America without being punished for their indiscretions, behavior that, to reiterate, is totally unacceptable in the countries they came from without them receiving just compensation for their unjust actions.
If I were them I’d get down on my knees and thank my lucky stars that I am in America, not in the Middle East dwelling in caves, without even a hint of comfortable and civilized amenities like an out house, let alone indoor plumbing, with sanitary running water piped-in for bathing and other necessary and proper needs of their physical selves.
We are willing to share our intellectual expertise with them, but evidently they don’t want to have anything to do with us, except to enjoy our generosity and hospitality and in return suicide bomb us all to perdition.
It’s just plain insane, their behavior to those who are not members of their ideology, which is like an exclusive country club: the fact is, if they are not killing their neighbors who do not belong to their exclusive organization, they begin to kill each other for no other reason than that killing is pronouncedly a life style without which existence to them becomes a bore, therefore they might as well be dead.

this is my 1st time reading your blog, and i find you to be truly a racist, with your comments toward, the hon. minister louis farrakhan. if the minister lied, about anything in public. the media would take him to task. they would not give any breaks. so if he talked about jews or whoever. he spoke the truth. the liars, are bush, cheney,etc.etc. and so on. so be upset about these people. THE MINISTER IS A GREAT AMERICAN. THXS.

I was looking up Fanchion recently to see where the young woman with whom I worked at UM had landed. Lo those nearly 20 years ago, she seemed like she had such promise. I was shocked to read this story and to see how far she has strayed from the ambitious, friendly, wholesome person I knew. I’m so sorry to see she seemingly has become bitter, greedy and amoral. What a sad ending to what could have been a fairly tale.

Kate on February 9, 2009 at 1:18 pm

Fanchon is a born liar.

She is a joke.

She should be locked up but will cry to the FBI to save her ass.

She should be in jail and hopefully people see thorugh her sob story and lies.

Nice try Fanchon/

Debbie,do you know how MY grandfather,William H. Turner,felt a century ago playing Negro League Baseball-his only surviving off-spring,my uncle Ronald Turner,has Grandpa’s Chicago American Giants uniform pants in his basement closet-while de-nied a shot at the major leagues many dispassionate observers said he should have received?(Jackie Robinson integrated MLB in ’47,when Granpa,who passed away at 83 May 7,1975,or 36 years ago tomorrow)while having to navigate Jim Crow?
Do you know how my cousin,MLB Hall-Of-Fame RHP Ferguson Jenkins felt playing in Miami,Fla. and Little Rock,Ark.-both
segregated Southern cities which hosted minor league famr clubs of Fergie’s then big league team,the Philadelphia Phillies-and being forced to endure racial slurs from bigoted fans,HOME and road,as well as trying to located black private homes,hotels,cabs and other accomodations,as “whites-only”
signs and attitude restricted Fergie’s and his black team-
mates’ and opponents’ movements and choices of residence,shop-
ping,eating,and were they to have gotten ill or died,health care and funeral/burial arragements?I realize you and your bigoted ilk-Tea Baggers and other racists-will eirher down-play
this disgusting era in “The Land Of The Free’ or tell me//other
blacks to “get over it,’ or worse,CELEBRATE SLAVERY-i.e.,Con-
federate TRAITOR RAG-waving,Civil-War 150th anniversary-cele-
brating [these "celebrations throughout the U.S. SEEM 99.99995% Caucasian-wonder why?]‘necks/Union Army-loving,
“slightly less” ‘necky types,but here goes:How ’bout my late mother’s 1927 meeting as a 10-year-old with her 84-year-old great-granfather-MY GREAT-GREAT-GRAND-FATHER!!!-ESCAPED MARYLAND SLAVE WHO RE-SETTLED HERE IN SOUTH-WESTERN ONTARIO,WHERE HIS SON,MY GRANDFATHER,MYSELF AND THREE SISTERS WERE BORN-Grandpa hailed from the escaped slave settlement,New Canaan,Ont.;my sisters and I were born-just one survives-and live in Windsor,Ont.,across the border from Detroit,Mich.)
That’s all for the nonce,Debbie;you may return to excusing/de-fending/participating in you and your clones’ typical prejudicial words and deeds against people of colour!!!

Oh pls!!! this is ridiculous!! I actually agree sometimes the minister goes to far in his attempts at exposing the truth and his wording maybe more inflammatory then necessary! But hes not doing ANYTHING YOU PPL haven’t done to us for hundreds of years and are STILL doing to this day!! you know what makes him more righteous tho? its the fact at LEAST he doesn’t hide his feelings like you all do now! You all act like RACISM doesn’t exist yet you embrace it behind the backs of those you direct it to! Even this so called “blog” or “Report” isso biased its shameful!! but you try to use this as your “crutch” against the minister! or is it against president Obama?? this thing reaches out in so many directions im not even sure the author knows! And in case you haven’t been paying attention this country’s government HAS put it in the position of Nazi Germany and is clearly taking the place in the eyes of the rest of the world as the PINNACLE of an “axis of evil” but keep up your good slander!! It only re-affirms the positions you oppose.
