@Kurb would take this quote at face value?


*shrug*
I rarely take an posts here at face value. Most I take with 0 value TBH.

Did you assume he meant to troll based of disagreeing with his ideas in other posts?

Really I could just reword the OP to fit whatever stupid argument I wanted to make and it would be just as true and carry the same weight

"How come the media doesn't report white on white crimes? It happens every day and it's by far the most common.

Link that confirms my own prejudice:http://www.theroot.com/views/why-don-t-we-talk-about-white-white-crime

What say the huddle? Conspiracy or no?"


You prove my point. It is not the death that the media cares about, only the possibility of racism. They pose in front of the cameras like they care about the lives lost, but again, probably won't even show up unless there is a "bigger" story.

nah I don't think stirs trolls when you go by the actual definition.

trolling is when you say stupid stuff on purpose. stirs actually believes in what he says so...

If George Zimmerman had been Jorge Mendendez, then the the Travon tragedy would never have gotten off the ground. The media, in its rush for a "story", saw Zimmerman and immediately reported it as a white guy. It was only later that they figured out he was part latino.

I just have a less than flattering view of the media. Foxnews included.

If that were the case I'd have way more rep for what amounts to just blind homerism

Well, quit flopping around like a fish out of water and tell me how great and even handed the media is in the Chicago killings? If you cannot do more than call names, then.....

Yes, only "if" his name were that I'm sure your bias would be comfirmed in this fantasy hypothetical.

Sure.

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

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.

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.
