Fox News Ticker: "Let's Hope the Magic Negro Does a Good Job"

From The Raw Story this morning comes this gem:
As if Americans needed any more reminders of how closely aligned with the Republican party the Fox News network is, New Year's Eve brings us this new tidbit.
During it's broadcast from New York City, the network encouraged viewers to send in text messages which, if approved by moderators, would scroll across the Fox ticker at the bottom of the screen.
Moderators, however, let this one slip: "HAPPY NEW YEAR AND LET'S HOPE THE MAGIC NEGRO DOES A GOOD JOB. LOVE JEN AND JOHN C."
I realize that it was a viewer comment that "slipped by" a moderator, but still... c'mon, guys. Way to perpetuate your own stereotype!
