    How many black teens have gone missing in Aruba?

    And to what do you refer regarding the 'mass shooting.' I don't think anyone is going to get all hot and bothered over gang wars.

    Crime drama TV series are a prime example. In real life both the victims and perps of crime over-represent blacks, in TV that is exactly the opposite. This intentional distortion of reality does two things, 1) it reduces the use of black actors/actresses and 2) it allows the impression that blacks do not suffer from crime at anywhere near the rates that they actually do. Some may assert that the opposite is true, that it is done to protect "the image" of blacks as violent perps of crime, but ignoring reality is physically harming the black crime victims much more than it is protecting them from getting their feelings hurt.

    You would be very, very wrong. Ask those that dare not let their children play outside, or walk to the corner store for an ice cream treat. Those that may avoid "the hood" do so, those that have no choice must suffer beyond what most can even imagine. The press not giving this situation due coverage, are intentionally keeping it going in the name of "compassion" for not tarnishing the image of minorities, as perps, that they wish to portray. It is not true that most minorities are criminals, but it is true that they are disproportionally the victims of crime; not reporting that aspect of reality keeps that so, hurting the majority of them. About the only time you see minority crime victims reported nationally is when the perp is white, then it is pretended to be "typical" and the result of racism. That was very much the point of the Zimmerman/Martin case getting so much publicity, while hundreds of Martins (minority young males) are killed daily for nothing more than visiting a convenience store or having nice shoes on.
