The double standards we see in the liberal mainstream media continues to this day, and the celebrity website Jezebel is the latest example of it.
On Sunday night, they penned an article titled “Ted Cruz’s token black friend swears he’s not racist, really.” They are referring to David Panton, Cruz’s former college roommate at Princeton, who happens to be one of his closest friends.

For those not aware what the term means, there are several definitions, but they’re obviously referring to the similar definition of what they would call an “Uncle Tom.”
This is so typical of the left. They call conservatives racist, while it is these liberals calling black conservatives “tokens” who are the real racists. We all know there is racism all across the political spectrum, but over and over again, we hear the left demonize some of these African-Americans just for having a different political opinion. Many other black conservatives have been targeted, such as Tim Scott, Allen West, and now David Panton.
This double standard in the media is getting sickening to hear about, and needs to stop. Until the left starts calling out these websites and media outlets, this will never end.
