Imagine replacing black in the quotes with white and think of the responce.

How many time have you looked at you local news station and thought to yourself....why did they pic the drunk homeless guy with one tooth. It's all about perception. Unfortunatley the black communities troubles are what is "celebrated" in the media. As a result some less imformed people think that all black people are like what they see on tv.
Think about it...more often than not a story about a crime could be drawn out for weeks, but a story about a man investing in his community is overlooked.
