CNN regular: Americans would vote to keep blacks ‘in the field’

CNN commentator LZ Granderson said on Thursday that if Americans had a choice, “black people would still be out in the field.”

While participating in a debate on “Erin Burnett OutFront” on whether the NFL’s Washington Redskins should change their team name, Granderson said it was not about political correctness, but about morality.

When Mediaite’s Joe Concha pointed out that changing the team name is not what the fans want, saying “eight in 10 say don’t change it,” Granderson shot back:

“I’m sure black people, if they were put to a vote, black people would still be out in the field. So, let’s not talk about morality put up to a vote.”

Of course, this irresponsible comment fails to account for how Barack Obama, America’s first black president, was elected to office when only 13 percent of the population is black.

Clearly, Granderson buys into the myth of institutional racism known as “critical race theory,” a belief that racism is pervasive in the culture, as a result of white privilege and white supremacy. A theory widely taught on the left.
