The Oped from the topic makes this appropriate distinction:

Presumably, this professor is making a shameful attempt at showcasing the systemic racism that in the nation’s heartland since she weaves her way along the sun.-and-moon’s path through the Midwest and deep south. In fact, this piece could make a liberal believe that she finds plenty to complain about with each successive state the poor celestial bodies are forced to carelessly tumble over in their gravity-orchestrated white supremacist march.

The professor could have used the eclipse to symbolically unite the country instead of doing this. Atlantic might not have published it.

I don't doubt it is a lie. They used to dig up stories and blow them up. Now it's safe for them (brietbart et al) to just make stuff up because their sheep are so brainwashed they'll believe anything.

This is what I assumed bannon is up to now he's back at propaganda media control

Really? Trying to project this negative news story into one about the right being brainwashed?

It has always been safe for the left wing media to outright lie. They do it all the time without consequence till we elected Trump anyway. Now they get the truth hammered into them when they lie.

The rise of the right wing media is in it's infancy. Especially on the net in video form were it is easier and cheaper to get your message out there. In this case the message is a good dose of what we right wingers know as the truth...

Get ready for the change as it is coming. Right wing visual media, not just radio..

Speaking of lies,,,;

The Atlantic is not Brietbart. Not connected, not on the same wavelength. To suggest so is a lie.

The Atlantic isn't, but Conservative Daily Post sure did put a spin on the article.

The story's just about the demographics of those on the path of the total eclipse and a little bit into why.

I think some folks are just reading too much into it and seeing things that aren't there.

I detect a few literates who think the story is absolute truth.

I will say the the op is somewhat misleading after reading through the article. I believe that the author was using the event of the eclipse as an attempt to attack what she believes to be racist areas of the country. I would not expect much different from a university professor of the Brooklyn Law School as they probably have little interest in teaching law compared to complaining about perceived racism of our nation.

The takeaway from this article for me is to not waste your money sending your children to the Brooklyn Law School as they will most likely only be indoctrinated by racists professors and will most likely fail at their intended professions due to the lack of a proper education.
