Yeah spacey, it's easy to quote what you see in the headlines. That's what the media wants you to express your outrage about. But does anyone really care about the 20 more black people that died in Baltimore in May than have died any other month this year? Certainly the press doesn't care. Do you?

Apparently, the media only thinks "black lives matter" if they were taken by white racists or the police.

It's really too bad that people need party ideologues to tell them what to think. We'd have a much better informed society if people developed their opinions independently without having to rely on a political party to do it for them.

I don't often agree with the Thorns, but I have to agree on this one. The media coverage of the death of Freddie Gray was non-stop and front page news. The doubling of deaths in Baltimore since the indictment of the police officers has hardly rated a footnote in media coverage. No one seems to care about all these black deaths unless they were committed as a racist act by a white person or by the police.

The media whips people up into a frenzy in an attempt to create more news to report.

Exactly. I own an apartment building near SBCC, and the going rate is about $1000 per room. And surprisingly, I don't even need to rent to students to get that kind of money. Most of my tenants are recent grads that are working.
