You seem to have a lot of faith in the media. I do not. I think it's extremely naive to count reporting frequency as proof of anything. I don't have the slightest doubt that the media picks and chooses events based on ratings potential--we've been told that by former members, in fact. That is, unless you believe only pretty "good girls" and cute little boys go missing.
A white, unarmed college student was shot multiple times and killed near where I live several years ago. I find it impossible to believe that this story would not have made the national media if the victim had been black.
You misunderstand. I'm not counting on reporting frequency to determine the frequency of how often minorities are executed by police vs white people.
I'm saying that the ones that made, not just national, but international healdlines, did so because it was warranted. It wasn't just the skincolor of the person killed, but the circumstances behind the killing that made headlines. I'm not saying that there aren't other stories that didn't get the same attention because of the color of the victim or police officers skin.
By the way, are you perhaps referring to the student who was shot while naked, around 2012 I think it was?Last edited by Hiku - on 05 March 2018
