    Re: Is the media inciting the Ferguson riots?

    I see it as terribly tragic that the media made this entirely about race, rather than the real issue - police violence.

    It is the MEDIA that decides who to put on the air and who not to. It is the MEDIA that decided to put on Al Sharpston and such, the MEDIA that legitimized this being about race, and the MEDIA that - accordingly - totally ignored the race-neutral issue of police violent and non-accountability of police violence (and murder).

    What happened in NYC isn't unique. There are piles of videos of the most violent and sadistic beating and tasering of totally innocent people, and increasing videos of innocent people being beat and shot to death. No doubt, for every 1 video there are 100 that were not videotaped.

    Maybe you should? I was just asking a question for the sake of clarification...

    I just love how some whites condone blatantly racist acts, and when others merely point it out, they accuse said messenger of "race-baiting." What they choose not to understand is that they have the privilege of being in denial like this.

    Why are you being so defensive? Racism is a system, not just a set of specific acts, although there are some that clearly fall into the latter category. You do know this, right?

    I am not being defensive... I was trying to make sure we are on the same page by seeking clarification. Helps with misunderstandings...

    Of course racism can be a system. Apartheid. The USA though are people committing specific individual acts unless they are Le Raza, the KKK or the NAACP, for instance.
