    I'd say the real truth lies somewhere between your contention and the OP's. There is certainly news coverage of black on white crime (although the reaction usually differs greatly as opposed to when the white individual is the aggressor), but it's not as severe or prevalent as you would like to suggest either.

    What difference does it make either way? Crime is crime? Assault is assault and battery is battery. I don't know why people want to trust the media to be objective.

    Their may have been a time when the media was objective, but nowadays it is all about ratings and money or a political agenda, period. They hype story's to piss people off on purpose and don't even bother to try and be objective anymore.

    Pay attention. Cons have been saying all over this board that "Hispanic is not a race." Then this comes up and suddenly it is. Hispanics come in different races -- a black guy from Cuba and a mestizo from Mexico are not the same race, but they are both hispanic. I also believe in Zimmerman's case that he's half-Jewish.

    Just for the record, Jewish is not a race. Although the United States Supreme Court ruled in the '80's that Jews would be treated as a race for discrimination purposes, it is a religion - and a culture.

    Re: Do people not care about Black on White Crime?

    Has there ever been a black that killed a white charged with a hate crime? I looked and all I could find was this. They are thinking about calling this a hate crime but if it was 6 white men calling a black guy racially charged names before they kicked the crap out of him it would be not only a hate crime but all over the news.

    SENECA, S.C. (AP) — Police have charged six black men with beating a white man outside a Seneca restaurant and have sent information about the attack to the FBI to determine if hate crime charges should also be filed.

    Authorities say the victim told investigators that a group of men called him racially charged names as he walked to his vehicle in the parking lot March 17.

    So, after the whole Trayvon media mess, and this current spate of killings of Tulsa where they're saying it was a white guy in a white pickup truck, we all know any white crimes committed against blacks will get huge media time for racism. But how come the reverse does not apply? It seems to me that crimes with black perps and white victims doesn't get nearly the media time. Such as these stories I've linked to, they seem plenty awful and racist to boot, but didn't get 10% the media time Travyon is getting. So my poll--in your opinions, does the media and the USA in general not care about black on white crime as much as white on black?

    Along with the point of George Zimmerman--who looks hispanic to anyone with eyes--now being called a 'White Hispanic' since he has a white parent. Shouldn't President Obama be a 'White African American' by that standard?

    I can't remember the last time I read anything about a black person killing a white person.

    It happens, of course, but it's not covered from the same sensationalist standpoint.

    Re: Do people not care about Black on White Crime?

    I think this thread is an excellent example of a preconceived notion looking for validation.

    The Wisconsin black on white attacks got good coverage in Philly but a bare mention in much whiter Oklahoma.

    The Tulsa spree now has two whites in jail with the cops saying they are investigating them for hate crimes. But this so far hasn't gotten the same coverage as the Florida shooting where the killer walked free.

    I'd opine there are too many factors to include sadly enough what else is happening in the world that day to make blanket statements about the media's coverage of crime.

    It might say a lot more about those who make the blanket statements.

    Anybody that claims white on black crime doesn't get more news coverage than black on white crime probably sees no left wing bias in the media either.

    Actually, from newscasts the mindset is "Be afraid of everybody else. Watch our show (and the commercials within them) to find out why!"
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    It probably depends on where you live, and which type of news you listen to.
