If this were a thread about black protesters it would be 400 posts by now. Should I start calling people out by name?

Call 'em out. We all know if blacks had done this we'd have people on this website jumping up and down in their rush to decry how messed black culture is and talk about what "the blacks" need to do...

Perhaps they're quiet now because they're trying to figure out a way to blame Obama without sounding racist XD

The silence on this issue is a weapon. When the populace and the media choose not to speak about an issue, it disappears. Then, when the next incident occurs and minorities cry out about injustice, others will reply "There is no racial disparity, show us the proof." That is the burden of the downtrodden: they are forced to be their own history keepers, because their oppressors would happily erase them and their stories.

Exactly this.

And when you try to make your stories heard you're accused of "race-baiting". We can't win. That's why I'm not interested in talking to people about race who aren't educated about race. It's a waste of time. But there it is, right there.

That is a perfect articulation of this phenomenon. Perfect.

Or, as black people refer to it: crime.

As for the news, you should well know by now that the news networks first priority is to make money. They do that via sensationalism, stirring up controversy, and perhaps even getting people a bit riled up. Actually informing you is a distant second.

Ever notice how whenever the news makes headlines about a missing person, it is either a cute white child or a beautiful white woman? Do you really think that no black children or women go missing? That bias is because white people are the majority viewer demographic, and people tend to feel more emotion over little kids and pretty women when bad things happen to them.

You're implying that white on white should just be viewed simple crime as black on black is. Regardless, I didn't see that waco whitey slaughterfest on the news, and I rarely see the police mopups of black on black crimes.

No, I'm not implying that. You are incorrectly inferring that. What I am implying is that the phrase "black on black crime" is only ever brought up as a distraction from other issues being discussed, much like many of your typically vacuous posts on these forums.

If you scroll up, you will see that I had much more to say about the nature of news coverage that was stated explicitly rather than implied...

Greyparrot, I wish I knew what you were talking about. What are you saying and how does it relate? What is the point you are making? That you didn't see this reported so that's why DDO isn't talking about it? That white-on-white crime isn't reported similar to black-on-black crime isn't reported? You're all over the place.

That's exactly what I am saying. Despite the purported coverage, I rarely ever see black on black crime reports. I have to dig around deep for them, they are certainly not glorified. It seems to me almost as if the media thought it was either some great thing for blacks to be killing each other, and they shouldn't report anything that might change that, or black lives are just too boring.

Personally I find that disgusting.

Those guys are very wrapped up in the cop/thug paradigm. I doubt they will post anything here unless its a bunch of whites gunning down cops, like the Waco siege way back when.

They're also wrapped up in denying (institutionalized) racism exists and here is a glaring example of the double standards that have to do with race. Both the reaction of the cops, and the media response/lack of DDO response. I saw an article where a news outlet literally referred to the gangs as "clubs". Why won't anyone call it like it is?

Heh! "Love talking about race"... that is a rather charitable way to put it. Rather they (and quite a few more) love talking about "race realism"-- which is itself a euphemism. And a better example of confirmation bias than "race realism" cannot be found...

PS I gotta say-- for 50-something posts in, you are very tuned in...
