Right - there was no division between races before but lately, such a gap.
Nobody wants to hear about Klansmen or kids killed by community watchmen so why do media outlets keep bringing them up?
Incidentally, the Trayvon story was 3 weeks old before the kids parents and masses of angry black protestors brought it to national attention. The
media eventually were forced to cover it, though 'the vixen' was always dragging it's heels - like it do.
Actually, you see dramatically different versions of the same news on all three main stations, and they are all basically similar in format - BUT if
you look closely at them you will see one of these 3 is not like the others.
They are all skewed to favor somebody - TWO ARE seeming to favor labor unions and workers, women and minorities, animal rights groups, the poor, (the

They're reporting on the protestors and documenting community outrage.
The 3rd news station decides to feature the Oil Company (destroying the wetlands) and focus on the local jobs it will create. This 3rd station
interviews employees and company reps and promotes
the measure. You getting a picture?
One is using a news outlet to promote depleting earths resources
and the already wealthy are making a killing doing it ....
While we are all distracted, fighting amongst ourselves over media coverage,
race issues, fetal rights and gays getting married - we take our eyes of the prize.
We do not see our Constitutional protections being stripped away or the crooks
staking claim to and walking off with - our jointly owned natural resources.
Without a free and fair press you have no democracy.
