Hello Americans, I’m Todd Starnes. Stand by for news and commentary next.
A Memphis firefighter is under investigation over a disturbing Facebook post, KWAM radio reports.
The firefighter, who is black, allegedly posted a message about a movie called “The Woman King.”
The move is about a group of all-female warriors protecting an African kingdom.
The firefighter allegedly wrote, “I hope there are some white folks killed.”
That firefighter is still on the job – still getting paid, according to television station WMC.
Last year in Chicago a white firefighter was fired after posting racist language on social media.
Different cities, different rules. I understand that.
But it’s the double standard that concerns me.
The media coverage in Memphis has been somewhat lacking. Not much interest. I suspect it would’ve been different if the firefighter had been a Trump supporter.
I’d like to think we could agree that all racist language should be condemned.
Someone waiting to be rescued in a burning building should not have to worry about whether they’re going to be rescued based on the color of their skin.
