Black lives only really matter when obamas media can again force their divisive, race baiting agenda onto the people. They won't be happy until their are race wars and they have something big to write about, no matter the cost to the people and our country.
I don't understand why the party goers (witnesess) are not being cooperative. There are kids involved. Why hide? Are they in fear? Yes, it is a miracle that no children were not harmed. God himself must have stepped in.

More like, black lives only matter when the media can either make a buck off them or stir some crap up to whip people into a frenzy...so they have another bigger story to report, again making money off them.
Ya-know, I don't remember last year being this bad in the media. We as a society talk mostly about what the media puts out there. There are so many other crimes that take place and we don't even know about them. White on white crimes hardly ever make the news unless the perp or victim is rich and/or famous. Black on black, sometimes that makes the news same with black on white. But white on black definitely makes country wide news. The media only tells us what they think we need to know. If you really want to know what is happening in our country as far as crimes go, you need to dig deep and I'm not talking about a simple Google. I don't know if I would call it racist but there is definitely something going on in this country that needs to be changed.
All good points. The media is definitely in it for the money. So the amount of controversy surrounding a story is what determines what leads.
But because of this, we have to realize that we aren't viewing reality through our media. We've been sold a "virtual reality" of sorts. This is a problem when we are willing to hurt innocent people over something that isn't even true. It seems like it has gotten worse.
Except that now, these SC families didn't go that virtual reality route. They went the love, kindness, forgiveness route, and it seems to have shaken up the media. THIS is now the story: good conquers evil. Love conquers hate. And forgiveness conquers revenge.
Black women go missing or are killed, and they never get the press.
Let's be clear, 98% disappear via black males!
Why should that point be important even if it is true, which I don't know. Do you have a link to that as fact?
White women disappear via white males too. Probably the majority of the time. Does it make it less worthy of media attention? Like DP states, it didn't for Elizabeth Smart or Laci Peterson.
Let's just be honest. Certain crimes and tragic stories have more media attractiveness and catch our attention. The media knows this. They play to that. But I don't think the media can be solely blamed for feeding us what we want.
I also don't think it is racism as much as it is our tendency to be more intrigued by news the majority of us can relate to on some level. A bar fight that ends up with a killing in an upscale Galleria area location will get more attention than one that happened in the barrio too.
BTW, my sister is white while brother in law is black. Half Jamaican and half English. He's disgusted by all this nonsense. He's not a dummy. Unfortunately liberals in America can't add 2+2, let alone comprehend the intricacies of a reality based society.
Pardon me, your epidermis is showing, sir I couldn't help but note your shade of melanin I tip my hat to the colorful arrangement Cause I see the beauty in the tones of our skin
We've gotta come together And thank the Maker of us all
We're colored people, and we live in a tainted place We're colored people, and they call us the human race We've got a history so full of mistakes And we are colored people who depend on a Holy Grace A piece of canvas is only the beginning for It takes on character with every loving stroke This thing of beauty is the passion of an Artist's heart By God's design, we are a skin kaleidoscope
We've gotta come together, Aren't we all human after all?
Ignorance has wronged some races And vengeance is the Lord's If we aspire to share this space Repentance is the cure
Well, just a day in the shoes of a color blind man Should make it easy for you to see That these diverse tones do more than cover our bones As a part of our anatomy We're colored people, every man, woman, boy, and girl
