Mark Lloyd is the associate general counsel and Chief Diversity Officer at the Federal Communications Commission. He was appointed to the newly created position by President Obama in early August. Before he was appointed a Czar, Lloyed was the vice president for strategic initiatives at the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights. His specialty is communications policy, and that policy he promotes can only be described as having a strange obsession with promoting a racial divide.
He is also not a big fan of the First Amendment:
“It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies.
“[T]he purpose of free speech is warped to protect global corporations and block rules that would promote democratic governance.” (Source)
Lloyd believes that the Caucasians are keeping the Black man down, at least in the mass media as you can see by the video below from Naked Emperor News:
Conference on Media Reform: Racial Justice
During the Clinton Administration, largely because of Congress who was then very concerned about affirmative action and believed that – although affirmative action largely benefited white women – that affirmative action was largely viewed as something that was benefiting blacks. Not necessarily any of the other racial groups (his laughter) but blacks. And that blacks had gotten enough and it was time to do something about this. These affirmative action programs needed to be stopped. We have not made much improvement since we’ve begun to pull back (sic) from those things in the mid 1990s.
The conversation about how we communicate with each other despite being aware of the clear impressions that I know that I make in rooms that I walk into, when people hear my voice, is a challenge. How much do I express the… I think really pretty obvious complaints of black Americans in rooms full of whites.
This… there’s nothing more difficult than this. Because we have really, truly good white people in important positions. And the fact of the matter is that there are a limited number of those positions. And unless we are conscious of the need to have more people of color, gays, other people in those positions we will not change the problem. We’re in a position where you have to say who is going to step down so someone else can have power.
There are few things I think more frightening in the American mind than dark skinned black men. Here I am.
The guy suffers from racial myopia in everything he does. In a 2007 Radio interview he talks about his real goals:
Fairness and Accuracy In Media’s Counter Spin Radio
What we’re really saying is that the Fairness Doctrine’s not enough. And that having a sort of over-arching rule that says broadcasters ought to be fair or ought to provide issues important to communities and that they ought to do it in a fair and balanced way is simply enough. Unless you put some teeth into that and put some hard, structural rules in place that are going to result in fairness.
So why would Obama appoint such a divisive man to a diversity position? Well there can be only one reason…He Agrees with Lloyd.
