Tamera Mowry told viewers of The View that her husband Adam Housley - who worked for decades at Fox News - is not a racist. But old tweets uncovered by Adam have made people question whether the RIGHT WING news anchor is bigoted towards Black people.
Documentary film maker and political activist Tariq Nasheed uncovered some OLD TWEETS by Tamara's husband. In some of the tweets, he seemed to push the false conspiracy theory pushed by Nazi's that South Africa is in the midst of a "white genocide."
But the most DAMAGING old tweets that he found - showed Adam supported racist murderer Zimmerman, over 17 year old innocent victim Trayvon Martin.
At the time of Trayvon's death, Adam worked at a news organization (FOX) so he had access to ALL of the facts about Trayvon's murder. But he continued to push the LIE that Zimmerman did NOT murder Trayvon due to his race. He also suggested that Zimmerman was innocent.
Here are the tweets:
Tamera recently said on her show "The Real", “There are some people who think that my husband is racist because he worked for a certain channel,” Mowry-Housley said. “I’m gonna look in that camera right there and let everybody know my husband is not a racist.”
Mowry-Housley, who identifies as bi-racial, has opened up in the past about the racist criticism she’s received for marrying her husband.
“It’s hurtful because my husband and I are so openly and fine with showing love, but people choose to look past love and spew hate,” she said in a 2014 episode of OWN’s Oprah: Where Are They Now? “That’s what hurts me because I’ve never experienced so much hate ever in my life.”
“I couldn’t even fathom or think of these words, because I’m a product of it,” she continued. “My mom is a beautiful black woman and my dad is an amazing white man, and I grew up seeing a family. I didn’t grow up saying, ‘Oh, that’s a white man.’”
