What you posted looks like a pretty clear hate crime to me.

The Zimmerman case was also a pretty clear hate crime or at the very least suspicious self-defense bullshit that wasn't treated as such by the authorities and that's why it got so much coverage.

I don't know what you want. You say 60 minutes etc. devotes too much time to w/b crime and not enough of everything else but you only came up with one example, and it didn't even apply.

You can say the media has a racist agenda because of one story about a dude in Florida but that's your thing I guess.

I think this discussion would probably go better if not started by a poster that constantly promotes bigotry.

Might have a hard time proving that one, but no worries, you won't be questioned.

Get the large chip off you shoulder there for a minute.

Go back and look at my Zimmerman posts. You are a bit blinded. I said that the deaths are not as important to the media as a racial story they can attribute to it. If there is not a white/black element, it gets very little coverage. Not what they should be doing in my opinion.

The media wants sensationalism.

What's going to get more attention: an argument getting heated and a white guy draws a gun on a black guy....

Or a white skinhead deliberately targeting a black guy because he's black?

The only agenda is to report what sells.

Again, what story involved w/b that shouldn't have gotten coverage?

It's not hard.

Who said it shouldn't have gotten coverage? If you are question scenarios that you yourself make up, then there is no need for the rest of us posting. You are not that dense.

I am saying that the media only reports news when it has a bigger story attached.

Never said it shouldn't be reported, but that they pretty much dismiss these type crimes unless they can get a whiff of a racial element to them. How many times do we have to do this?

Don't worry, you won't have to do the heavy lifting too much longer as the cavalry will come riding to your rescue. Cantrell and CWG will arrive shortly.

Delhommey already came with his drive by name calling. Help is on its way.

It is like a black man is worth nothing unless a white man kills him. You tell me, what does that show?

since we're using anecdotal evidence as a basis for sweeping claims and subsequent outrage, i'll cite my own anecdotes: i see news reports on the murder of african-americans by other african-americans all the time. it's usually on the local news, because it's specific to greensboro. if every murder made the national news on a daily basis there'd be no time to report on anything else.

what makes big national news stories are ones that have the potential to capture the nation's attention (belding is right, sensationalism does play a part.) but in many cases it's not made a big deal of because it's black versus white but because of other factors: cop versus citizen. security guard versus 17-year-old high school student. thief versus college valedictorian. race often plays a factor in structurally determining the context of those scenarios to begin with, but i don't see enough convincing evidence of a media bias towards race in particular to convince me of the claim that the media somehow has this over-arching policy from execs down to the beat writers to capture and report stuff that'd incite people to be mad at whitie.

based on your record of posting and the fact that your posts remind me of the exact same rhetoric i posted on messages boards years ago, i'm guessing you have a massive confirmation bias which you cloak in false pretenses. you want the main stream lame stream media to be a bunch of slanted stinkin' liberals with an agenda to push, so you filter data accordingly.

i keep hoping you'll bring up an actual point that jives with logic so i don't have to throw the whole of mainstream conservatism out the window, but you're not making that job very easy for me. all you've managed to do is show me what a screwed-up individual i used to be by agreeing verbatim with asshole PhillyB circa 2003.
