No - it doesn't need to be spelled out; it just needs to be...I dunno...quoted. And this wasn't a quote. At all.

You ask what their purpose in including 'hates white people' in their quote would be when the same question should be answered by you - what's the purpose of translating 2 words if, as you say, we 'don't need everything spelled out for us...'.

It's simple - they're trying to blunt the initial impact. Poorly, to be fair, but it's still what they're trying to do.
OOOOR.....you're seeing intent that isn't there.

Everything written in the linked article, as well as the choice words in the tweet, contradict your claim.

This is a case of latching onto two words and ignoring EVERYTHING else and saying, "see, they're biased".

It's ridiculous and petty.

Wanna see bias? Read that shit JPB posted. That's REAL slant.
