Boston Herald Headline

The headline reads:


FBI: White felon bought gun for Dylan Roof-style attack"


Can anyone please share another headline from a newspaper from a major US city where the race of the criminal is listed in the headline?

It seems to me the double standard is alive and well.

You can't be racist against White people because they are the reason for everything that's wrong in the world today.

I don't think it has to do with the media being any kind of racist.

They adjust their headlines according to whatever agenda they are pushing.

The media is RACIST.

A white felon ?

Come on.

Dylan Roof style attack ?

In the same article.



The statement says McDowell posted statements online praising Roof,but did not appear to have formulated any specific attack plans. Roof faces the death penalty for killing nine black worshippers in a Charleston church.


This is what passes for journalism these days.

Pretty effing sad.

George Zimmerman was 'white hispanic'.

You've heard of divide and conquer, racism is divide and rule.

You know, your attempt at labeling the media racist falls flat when the article you are pointing out is literally about a racist.

The FBI arrested Benjamin McDowell shortly after he bought the gun Wednesday for $109 in Myrtle Beach. McDowell is charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

According to a sworn FBI statement, agents began investigating McDowell after he threatened a synagogue on Facebook.

The statement says McDowell posted statements online praising Roof, but did not appear to have formulated any specific attack plans. Roof faces the death penalty for killing nine black worshippers in a Charleston church.

I mean do you have anything to show that this dude ISN'T a racist?

The Boston Herald is Boston's Conservative newspaper.

The real headline should have been:

Thwarted White Nationalist Terror Attack

I am glad Trump is calling out the CIA propaganda arm...the MSM. They are not only fake they are some disingenuous a-holes.

Goto Breitbart I think they have an entire section called "Black crimes" but nooo such animal as "white" crimes..the Daylan Roof thing maybe connected to the fact that Daylan is a Whwy-supremacist...however media do like making a buck off racial antagonism, Btw the media ain't shy about labeling mass shootings as Muslims deserving or not.

Boston Herald in general is a Left Wing tabloid organization.

I understand he's racist. When a non-white person is alleged to have committed an hate crime, is it usual for the press coverage to list that person's race in the headline? That's the double standard. "Black man arrested for planning a 'John Allen Muhammad' like crime" Would that ever be a headline?

The Herald does usually have a conservative bent, at least most of the columnists.

I really wouldn't consider Breitbart a daily newspaper. Relative to the point about calling out Muslim attacks, in the US? The press, the police, politicians all counsel against jumping to conclusions that it's a Muslim hate crime until it is absolutely necessary. I'd have to disagree.
