I could be wrong, but I don't think ABC = Jeopardy. I believe it is independent and syndicated. It is on the NBC carrier in my local area. Blame the show's producers. Much as I despise ABC I don't think this has anything to do with ABC deciding anything.
Following up on Ann's theme, my thoughts always go to the millions in other countries in the America's, whether Mexico or points south, who are NOT trying to come to the US and so presumably trapped in these horrible hell-holes that our illegal aliens are supposedly fleeing. Would they not be better served by having those fleeing Mexico (or wherever) there alongside them working together to make those nations better places for EVERYONE ? How about EXPORTING American values and creating more outposts of freedom and opportunity.
Wonder if Cummings said anything like that when MLK was murdered.
The right wing has only learned well the lessons it has been taught over the decades by the victim lobby left. They've observed the outrage mongers continue to get their way when railing against the most minor perceived slight and see no reason the same tactics cannot be used by their side. Get used to it.

And of course the Russians are using their fossil fuel resources as a hegemonic tool to manipulate the political behavior of its neighbors.
If the NAACP really believed in the creed suggested by their organization's name, then THIS is where they'd be focusing most of their effort rather than what they do today which seems to be nothing more than seek power and more handouts.

And woe to any landlord who accepts Sec 8 tenants, finds them problematic, and seeks to get them out of his property.

I'm under no illusion it will remove your head from the sand, but try this analogy..... In the course of a crime in which we are both victimized the perp handcuffs us together. Am I justified in murdering and dismembering you, a complete innocent, to free myself from this inconvenience ? Apparently you feel in come cases this would be justified, most of us here disagree. Killing a fetus is not comparable to removing a cyst.

In some ways I mourn for America's black community. It's 'leaders' (or at least those who are viewed as such by the media) focus almost solely on poking society in the eye and shouting 'racist' at every perceived slight and seeking ever growing economic handout programs to make it easier for those trapped to barely get by. Those leaders could be focusing on building up their community by encouraging two parent families and self-reliance, but they choose rather to encourage expanding dependency. I do not believe the lot of those in the black community will improve until the focus of its leaders changes.
