Probably because black people make up 12% of the population and 36% of the offender rate for homicide, usually against other black victims.So though blacks may be stereotyped it is not without some merit.However it's not all bad news I've noticed over the years more positive black role models in hollywood and on US tv.But any group can be demonised in Bush's reign anti war protesters were Anti American hippies, anti globalization protesters were violent anarchists and now tea partiers are klan supporting Tim Mcviegh wannabes.I think it comes from dreadful hysterical opinion based news the US is famous for.

This thread is ridiculous!
There is one demographic group in our country that the media holds zero restraint when dealing with:
White Males hahahahaha! tell that to white women and thier glass ceiling in positions of management. They are outprioritized by men most of the time. Now for black men....we get (soft)banned from whole industries FYI
This is common knowledge. It has been "open season" on the white male for many years now, and it has been accepted by our nation.
Name one incident and I'll pull up 30 for american african thats worse.
Out of all minority groups, the African American enjoys restraint and spin more than anyone else. The media will do almost anything to keep from sounding biased.
Fox news. Their so racially psychopathic that even rush limbough likes em. I guess they love mexicans and african too. hahahaha!
I think the first thing the OP would have to do, is begin keeping a tally of positive, news-worthy African American activity that is NOT making it into the news that the media is offering the public.
So is there more positive than negative news? of course there is. Its also boring. TV pedals sensationalism. No one is going to give a crap if some other race is being used by the media as a cheap ratings bump to chum right wing race obsessors. When was the last thing the media said positive about arabs?
Then, this can be compared to the amount of negative news-worthy activity that IS making it to the news offered by the media.
Why don't you research and show us your findings.
THEN, the numbers can be looked at, and if it is warranted, a statement, such as has been made in this topic, can be substantiated.

You want to see television say something good about "African looking people" (that sounds stupid by the way), then watch BET or CNN.
If blacks don't want negative coverage then they need to stop doing negative things.
Thats a pretty easy solution right there.

of course it was a big deal a black man got elected president, if Hillary would of been elected it would have been a big deal too, for so long America has only elected older white males, so if a woman or black man gets elected it is a big deal, why do black people always think the white man is out to get them, black people get way more benefits then the white man, and that's a fact!!

white people do terrible things everyday but statistically black people do more bad things, It seems to me every black person thinks they are owed something, they already have the negro college fund, they qualify easily for medicaid, food stamps, TANF, and all sorts of other programs that most of them just take advantage of anyway, I mean seriously get over the racist issue and step up to the plate and become a responsible human being,and maybe you wont be talked about so much on television!!
