An Embarrassing image and caption was shown during an episode of CNNs Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield. The news piece referenced the hit movie “Straight Outta Compton” and displayed a caption that read, “Hip-Hop Film Had Long Lines, No Violence.” The image of Ashleigh was posted on FaceBook and shared many times. What’s embarrassing about the piece is it plays into a cultural stereotype that Hip-Hop Films equals violence. So to have a Black a.k.a. “Hip-Hop” movie with long lines and no violence is shocking to CNN – look at Ashleigh’s face. The last three to four movie shootings have been of white people killing white people.
The #BlackLivesMatter campaign is resonating with Black people and Black-on-Black crime is significantly reducing across the country. So this is SMH Embarrassing and they ought to put their head in a hole for this report.
CNN and Ashleigh Banfield gets Ostrich of the Day….
