A real piece of work.“Blake Neff has resigned," Fox News told the Washington Examiner on Friday.
Neff has been a frequent poster on a web forum called AutoAdmit, according to CNN. Using the pseudonym CharlesXII, Neff repeatedly posted inappropriate slurs and remarks for the past several years.
In a post just this week, Neff responded to a thread titled "Would u let a JET BLACK congo n----- do lasik eye surgery on u for 50% off?" He responded, "I wouldn't get LASIK from an Asian for free, so no." On June 5, Neff wrote, "Black doods staying inside playing Call of Duty is probably one of the biggest factors keeping crime down."
In March, Neff began making fun of a woman who had made the decision to freeze her eggs. He titled a thread, "Disaster: WuFlu outbreak endangers aging shrew's quest to freeze eggs."
Yeah, that cnn article is quite damning. Most likely Fox will just hire another writer for Carlson and sweep all that under the rug.Oh mai...

A real piece of work.
This thread just floated across my timeline in Twitter -- the whole of it is spot-on, to my mindThis is exactly how we inculcate bias, classism, racism, sexism -- all the old cultural patterns -- in the next generation. These all-too-familiar themes wrapped up in pretty packages that strip out the cruelty. Diagon Alley is straight out of Dickens, but it's just a charming, decorative shell that reduces the 19th century into set decorations. Hermione at school is a token acknowledgment of modern sensibilities, but everyone's home lives are still the old gender stereotypes with Mrs. Weasley at home producing oodles of babies while her husband goes off to work every day.
