Over the last few months, he has written heinous columns that essentially advocate for the racial and sexist oppression and maltreatment of women and people of color. His extremist and sadly antiquated views consist of a column he wrote in July 2013 defending the racial profiling of Trayvon Martin that led to his unfortunate death. Later this year in September, he placed blame on singer/actress Miley Cyrus and the MTV Video Music Awards for "so-called Steubenville rape." He continued stating that the rape concern in Steubenville was more about "decency," not the issue of criminality.
His recent tirade in the art of journalistic oppression occurred on November 12 where he wrote a column arguing that interracial marriage is offensive to many Americans and makes them want to "gag."
Richard Cohen's egregious prose gives life to the very tyranny that socially and legally marginalizes millions of human beings based solely on their gender and racial/ethnic group linkages. His promotion of victim blaming ideologies and racial extremist views MUST be put to an end!
