Start reporting the actual news.
I have always used yahoo to get news from around the country and world. Yahoo has stopped reporting actual news and is spreading propaganda. Go back to the reporting non bias stories and let the reader make their own de
Today, there was an article titled "Am I a Fetish or the Prettiest Girl In The Room? Why Attractive Black Women trigger White People" The article claimed that the painting "A Pair of Broad Bottoms" had been made to objectify black women, resulting in the expectation that black women have large bottoms and twerk. When I pointed out that the two people in the painting were actual people at the time (Sarah Baartman and Lord Grenville), who looked the way the painting had depicted, the moderator kept removing my comment. Apparently, he can't be bothered to do a google search before determining if my comment is factual enough to be posted.
The same is true for a later comment I tried to give explaining that only a small fraction of white Americans descend from ***** owners. This is a fact that has been attested to by several experts, including Nell Irvine Painter, an African American black studies professor and historian at Princeton University, in her book "The History of White People". Even snopes tries to exaggerate the percentage by pointing out that Adam Rothman, a historian at Georgetown University, claims 7.4% of white Americans owned slaves. Well, that's still a small fraction. Snopes takes issue because this number includes non-*****-holding states, but my comment never claimed to be only about *****-holding states and, further, ***** ownership came nowhere close to the majority of white households even in the South. Some states were worse than others, but I didn't specify I was discussing any specific state. Rather, I clarified I'm discussing white Americans today, the majority of whom, as I said, "do not descend from *****-owners". As widely known as this fact is, when I tried to post it, the Yahoo moderator blocked me from making any more comments and threatened to remove my yahoo account. Am I supposed to lie and claim the bulk of white Americans DO descend from ***** owners? Because your "terms and conditions" claim we're not supposed to lie in the comments section. If we are only allowed to post "facts", how come both your articles and the comments section are filled with leftist inaccuracies that we will have our Yahoo accounts removed for trying to correct?
