The biggest problem with race relations in America is not people getting along, but the major news media. I am talking about the TV news networks and large news papers. Have you ever seen a news report that starts with "a white cop shots an unarmed white teenager" ? No you don't, but if it is a black the headlines are all over the place. How about they just report that "a police officer shot a teenager that resisted arrest and attacked the officer". I know is isn't as sensational and won't get people as stirred up but at least it is unbiased reporting.
It makes you wonder what their hidden agenda is in trying to stir people up. If you look at the statistics, many of the shootings by police officers are of white criminals and a small percentage is of black criminals. But this doesn't make as good headlines. Besides it wouldn't give people a reason to riot and burn and loot.
Why didn't anyone protest and riot when a group of young blacks killed a white man near Ferguson supposedly in retaliation for the officer shooting that Brown kid. It barely made it into the new and was pretty much ignored.
Why don't they protest the fact that most of the blacks that are killed are by the black gangs in their own neighborhood.
But God help a white police officer if he has to defend himself and kills one of them. The media is ready to crucify him before they even know what actually happened.
Here is a link that everyone should see. Perhaps it will change your outlook on what is happening.http://www.youtube.com/v/RUUZ2fKVqcs?ve ... tube_gdata
The National Institutes of Health has just released the results of a $200 million research study completed under a grant to Johns Hopkins.
The new study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than the men who mention it.
