DAILYKENN.com -- The local media appears to have slipped up by (a) identifying the shooting victim as a "white male" then (b) posting an image of the black suspect.
Local media outlets must be more careful in scrubbing the news. It is essential that white people always be portrayed as oppressors and non-whites — particularly blacks — be portrayed as their victims; never visa versa.
The truth, as they say, is racist.
Therefore, when black-on-white violence occurs, it is necessary that neither victim no suspect be profiled by race. The may be profiled by age and gender; but never by race.
