Um...Is it me or is it a bigger deal when a white person kills a black person,then when a black person kills a white person???

  • In the medias eyes yes.

    In reality no, we are all people and weather someone of a different race or Origen pulled the trigger on you, it's all the same. But in the context of this question, yes. There is no bounty that the media portrays a white man shooting a African American as "racially motivated" but when it's the other way around you don't hear nearly as much.

  • I agree with you.

    Mind you, I'm black, but I agree totally. When a black person gets killed by someone, I also hope it's not by a cop or a by white person, because (some, not all, most of us black people have smarts) other black people will go out destroying things. That is an idiotic way to protest. I am an activist (I support ALL lives matter, and other groups), so I know the best way to get the word out is to peacefully protest.

    It saddens me how people like to separate themselves because I have darker skin, and some people have lighter skin. It's horrible.

    Meanwhile, a black person or a cop kills a white person, and no one speaks of it, no one cares. It's a sad, sad, world we live in. All crimes are wrong, and no, it's no always because of race, most of the time, it's because of that person is a real criminal.....

  • No, it's not just you.

    Yes, the news media makes a bigger deal about a white killing a black than a black killing a white in most cases. This is due to many things. First, minorities killing minorities barely makes the cut because of gang violence. Second, Whites killing Whites is typically a headline. However, a white killing a black is seen by the media as racist. When a black kills a white, it is seen as "typical", which is complete hypocrisy on their part.

  • I disagree mostly but in a way I do agree.

    I think sometimes when a white person kills a black person it becomes a bigger deal than vice versa but sometimes vice versa is more serious. Here's how it goes: When a black person kills a white person, people will convict that person and call them a criminal and probably be sentenced to like 30 years or life in prison. But sometimes when a white person kills a black person, some try to back them up by saying they might have a mental condition or they will be given a lighter sentence than their black counterpart. Again, this is not always the case but I have seen it happen. Like with the case of Brock Turner, a white man- though he did not kill anyone, he did rape a woman and stick foreign objects up her you know where but he only got three months in a COUNTY JAIL! That is unfair to the victim. But when Brian Banks- a black man was falsely accused of sexual assault he was sentenced to five years is prison. Does that sound fair to you?

  • I think the opposite

    I think the opposite is true. It is a bigger deal if a black person kills a white person, because then they are called cynical or radical. When a white person kills a black person they are mentally challenged or disturbed. The media changes it to fit the race or culture.

Um...Like its hard to explain without sounding racist (which i'm not) so wen a white person kills a black person like the black people go straight to saying it involved racism which i don't belive is always the case and white people really don't ever say it involves racism.Do you understand now???
