    Do people not care about Black on White Crime?

    Teens set kid on fire for being 'white boy' - New York Daily News

    'Beat Whitey Night': Racism suspected in Iowa State Fair attacks | ksdk.com

    Report: Black Mobs Attack Whites Outside Wisconsin State Fair | Video | TheBlaze.com

    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?

    That, and interesting article. http://www.examiner.com/political-bu...ation-formulas

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

    Whenever the media focuses on a single crime, like Trayvon Martin or the pretty little white girl whos been kidnapped, lots of people ask "Hey the victim is "X" race, why doesn't the media ever care about "Y" race?

    The simple fact is this:

    1) It's not about race its about rating, no news agency is motivated directly the race of the criminal or the victim, they are motivated by what stories will get more ratings.

    2) There are so many crimes that happen in the US that its impossible to cover them all, so you can always complain that someone or something is being left out. And again going back to ratings its not good to have two crime stories running at the same time, its redundant, gets boring and confusing.

    So stop being the victim of a made up problem

    True, it's quite a bit about media, except for the fact that when law enforcement agencies go with the current attitudes and quickly label things hate crimes when committed against blacks, but are reluctant to do the same for crimes committed against whites, that means that blacks are getting extra legal protection via stiffer penalties when whites commit crimes against them compared to vice versa. Violates equal protection under the law.

    Are you kidding me! They are only their favorite type of crime! Have you not watched any evening news in a major city?

    Got any real data? Or just a "fact" you've made it up because its required for your argument but has no backing?

    Ah, but it IS about race. To think otherwise is like having one's head stuck in the sand. It might be politically incorrect to say it out loud, but since when have I ever been pc? News focuses on white on black crimes. Don't ask me why because I have no clue. We see it every day. Or at least, I do. Yahoo, aol, huffington post, tv. The news wants stories for hit counts...and white on black IS hit counts. So why is that not considered "race motivation"?

    So the media is bias towards white on black crimes in your opinion, but you have no idea why and have no data except for personal anecdote. Pardon me if I don't take your opinion seriously.

    Sigh. I know this is Debate Politics, but I don't debate. I give my opinion. And my opinion was stated. Pardon me if I don't give a rat's behind whether you take my opinion seriously.

    Does the media not care about black on white crime?
    Umm, watch any local newscast. Or any cop show. They're ALL about the scary black man who is coming for your white daughters. This mindset is literally so pervasive in our society that people don't even notice it anymore, as the existence of this thread proves.

    Actually the cop shows typically show crimes being commited by people of same races against each other.
