What? Don’t wow me? What kind of nonsense does this woman think she is trying to pull?
It is amazing to see an exchange between someone who isn’t afraid to speak their mind and challenge everything that is assumed. It’s refreshing to see someone not back down to someone on this network.
D.L stood his ground and made her look silly, especially when she tried to get belligerent and raise her voice and tried to shout him down. That is the moment in the video where he said, under his breath, “wow.’ I guess Megyn thought he committed a little micro-aggression and made her feel threatened. Well, that is too bad. This is the big leagues. If she wanted to raise the intensity level, she chose the wrong person to challenge. D.L. showed that he was able to go toe-to-toe with someone who thought could make her opponent look bad on national TV.
You were wrong Megyn. Dead wrong.
I get sick of the media sticking a microphone into the face of the first random black person they see after a tragedy. Ain’t nobody got time for that. I urge the media to begin putting microphones in front of the following people and see how the conversation changes:
Henry Louis Gates
Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Dr. Julianne Malveaux
Marc Lamont Hill
James Braxton Peterson
BARAK HUSSEIN OBAMA
and dozens of others….
I don’t agree with all of these thinkers and I am not aligned with their political views, but I would be more than happy to have them speak to the issues of our times. There are few people on this list who I would love to speak, with and I’m pretty sure we will never see eye to eye. I am quite sure we will find a way to have a productive conversation and find common ground in the end.
We come from a history of black intelligentsia.
Have we forgotten brilliant minds like W.E.B. DuBois, Richard Wright, James Weldon Johnson, Ralph Bunche, Zora Neale Hurston, Martin Luther King and Malcolm X? There are dozens more, but I want to expose my readers to the people that are around right now with the list above. Intelligent black men and women exist. We are here, we are writing, speaking, organizing, and unafraid of speaking up and not backing down from some intellectual jiu-jitsu.
The time has come for people to stand up and not be shouted down but those who feel they are superior simply because they were born with less melanin.
Check out this video. I loved every second where D.L. refused to go along with the script and showed Megyn that she couldn’t “out-FOX” him. Good job D.L!
