To my former colleagues in broadcast news:
This is, arguably, the biggest political story since at least 1968: the potential presidential candidacy, on a major Party ticket, of an open racist.
This article postulates that we need more journalists of color to call Trump out.
We also need more white journos to stop dealing in false equivalence, and point out the naked racist fear and white nationalism propelling Trump.
If you fail, history will treat you as badly as it has reporters in 1920's Germany who reported "even-handedly" on Herr Hitler's rise. Journalism is a duty to the larger public. Never forget.
