Mainstream Media Fails

Fox 25 News Reporter Crystal Haynes Writes Puff Piece Glorifying Monica Cannon-Grant, Suggests Peaceful Protesters Are Racist, Forgets To Mention Guy Who Threatened To Shoot Us


This is Fox 25 News “reporter” Crystal Haynes.

She was one of the “invited” media that was allowed to cover Monica Cannon-Grant’s opening ceremony for her new free building in Hyde Park that she gets to run her illegal unregistered non-profit out of. We were there yesterday disrupting the shit out of it while peacefully protesting for black lives and against the systemic racism that has elevated Monica Cannon-Grant. For that several gang members showed up and threatened to murder me and the 5 peaceful protesters who bravely stood with me on the front lines.

There’s a reason Crystal Haynes was invited – because she agreed to write a puff piece that promoted the biggest racist in Boston.

But she made very little mention of the peaceful protesters outside, which is the definition of fake news because it was literally impossible to miss us. Nor did she mention the controversial and racist things MCG has said and done, or the fact that we were blaring those very racist things on a loud speaker for the whole world to hear. They had to cut the ribbon early and bring the ceremony inside because we were so vocal in our protesting of racism. Instead we got this:

From sometimes controversial activist to organizer and non-profit CEO, Monica Cannon-Grant’s work has always been centered on her passion for keeping her community safe.After more than a year of planning, donations and volunteer labor, the Violence in Boston Social Impact Center opened to the public this Labor Day. Boston 25 spoke with Cannon-Grant last March when the space was still raw. Now, it’s home to a food bank, recording studio and job resource and after school center. Artists from across Boston donated their time to create elaborate murals.

“The work that Monica’s doing is not only work, it’s personal,” said former Boston City Councilor Tito Jackson. “It’s her family and it’s her community which she’s put on her shoulders.”

Violence in Boston Inc. started as a Facebook page posting incidents of violent crime in Cannon-Grant’s neighborhood and grew to large scale protests for safer streets and the movement for Black lives. Recently they provided tens of thousands of meals to families in Dorchester, Roxbury and Mattapan and worked with the families of victims of police violence to pass legislation banning chokeholds and other potentially deadly practices.

While speeches were delivered from elected leaders and activists, including Garner, a small group of protesters stationed themselves outside the center, a reminder of the conflict Cannon-Grant says she often faces in her work.

“I’m an activist and a Black activist and that means not everybody’s happy when you’re screaming Black Lives Matter, not everybody is happy with you telling the truth,” said Cannon-Grant. “But that’s how I got here.”

If you weren’t there and you read this story you’d think that 6 racist people showed up to yell at a black woman for feeding the homeless.

“Not everybody is happy with you telling the truth.”

But wait, I thought she was sorry for quotes like these.

If she was just “telling the truth” then she’s not really sorry. I guess it’s OK to threaten to blow someone’s head off and accuse them of riding white penis for a credit score because they had the audacity to be in an interracial relationship.

Funny Crystal Haynes didn’t mention any of that in her story. Nor did she mention the fact that gang members showed up on Monica’s behalf and threatened to shoot 6 peaceful protesters, forcing us to leave early.

One of those guys who flashed us with the international symbol for “I’m strapped” was standing behind Monica during her speech.


But yet untalented hacks like this are rewarded with Emmy’s in today’s media.

And City Councillor’s like Julia Mejia continue to support and amplify this sort of hate speech.

This is what institutional racism actually looks like. A racist woman gets propped up by a complicit media and a complicit government and is allowed to spew violent racist threats at people because she’s black and thus is allowed to. This is why I will laugh in the face of anyone who calls “systemic racist a real thing that benefits white people. Clearly it does not, and the systems are all controlled by people who think like MCG.

    She’s a loser who gets all the garbage stories anyway! Im sure she had her marching orders! Watching the principal get suspended and the Duxbury teacher get praised, Monica’s words rationalized – If silent majority is a myth- we are all done!!

    I’m quite surprised that “Animal Planet” network wasn’t invited as well. That Monica is a fuckin’ wildebeest!
    Cameras on her with her feed bag on would be worth the trip!
    But on a serious note, I believe this center is going to attract a lot of riff-raff. I just hope for the sake of our youth, that they will benefit from what is being offered to them.

    Crystal Haynes’s dishonest statements about MCG are the predictable result of years of affirmative action. Pretend that incompetence is not incompetence for long enough, and the incompetent will think they’ve gotten away with it. They haven’t and they’re not fooling anyone. There should be a local black channel where idiots like Haynes can ask celebrity criminals like MCG to discuss Cardi B.’s “WAP” and other similar subjects that reflect the intellectual heights of urban black thinking.

    In other words, there’s no systemic racism, just systemic affirmative action that’s destroying normal productive society.

      The most hilarious part of Cardi B being a gang member and former stripper whom robbed men after they paid her for sex, is that she is in fact Hispanic and drops the N word casually.

I am so glad I moved out of metro boston before the metco system started busing fatherless negroes to White cities and towns all over massachusetts. It looks like all “aspiring rappers” have a new “crib” to hang out and shoot at each other. Prediction; tent city starts popping up all around the “community center”. nogs shitting in the street, and needles everywhere.

      The majority of the “cast” of actors at ftx 25 is a little too white with the exception of Hynes and Daniel Miller.

    You don’t miss a trick, TB.
    Saw this last night…pretty sure the fat racist grifter said something along the lines of “”These are the things I deal with every day” (referring to you guys). In other words, “she’s” the victim here.
    The “spin” on this was nothing short of mind-numbing.

    Add Fox 25 to the (do not) watch list, people.

    A couple of observations:
    1. That pinky toe is fix’n to bust out and make a break for it. Poor shoes. They need hazard pay. Regardless, they have already been returned to Famous Footware.
    2. Monica could literally consume the petite reporter.
    3. That dude’s shirt is hilarious. I wonder if he’s see the irony that he has to advertise that he’s a father. That alone is an indictment on her community and how it got to needing Violence in Boston, Inc in the first place.

    Seriously though, in her neighborhood, it’s the loudest, most aggressive, most violent one who wins the argument. So, stay smart and safe TB.

    Hood boogers doing they thang. The women wear straightened, culturally inappropriate hair- I wonder if grant & her female posse secretly want pink vaginas. And please! What the fuck is up with all the so called males with hair weaves??? Too feminine. Still can’t get over that sausage casings grant slithered into. Bet it took a couple gallons of crisco to make that happen. All in all, accurate representation of the black American community, although for some reason, they weren’t shooting at each other.

    Recording Studio is fucking priceless. This is what’s important in the COMMUNITY, aspiring Rappers. It’s always stupid shit like this, never Math, Proper English, classes on breaking the cycle of violence, breaking the cycle of Welfare.

    Used to think Haynes until getting close to her while she was reporting on a house fire in Billerica a few winters ago.
    She has a weird, orange glow to her skin color that was off-putting at best.
    Perhaps it was makeup for the camera. Whatever it was it was creepy & made her look like an out of focus Simpson character.

    You need to brush up on your Newspeak. “Peaceful” means riotous mayhem punctuated by false accusations of racism while carrying out acts of actual racism. Since your very existence is racist it would perpetuate racism if you were to be acknowledged, therefore FOX 25 was fighting racism.

    Eight primates were shot in Boston over the long weekend.

    All of the victims survived, according to WCVB. This includes a chimp who was shot in Dorchester on Sunday, and then was reportedly run over by a ape who was trying to render assistance.
