    This thread is about the media.

    Can you guys tell what's missing from the story? What prominent words are missing from the headline? Heck, they're missing from the entire story.

    Have any of you seen this reported on the national networks ad nauseam? How about social media and online protests? Have any politicians talked about this?

    Is this story worthy of 5000+ posts?

    If the video gets taken down then there's one at the below link.

    Well to be honest, he probably had it coming.
    Probably didn't show the lad the proper respect he deserved.

    Sadly, nursing home neglect and abuse is common. This was attempted murder on an elderly victim. This is a good example of what people call a hate crime.

    Have you noticed tons and tons of white people haven't started rioting and blocking the streets and demanding that all black people are the problem?

    Reverse everything and it becomes a trial of pure hatred and racism.

    Riot for what? Did the cops see the video and refuse to charge anyone?

    Does that mean we have to go through the victims life and find every mistake they made to justify what was done to them?

    What benefit does the MSM gain from reporting on a minority abusing people? None. Their job is to demonize white people, specifically white
    Men...NOT report the news.

    Of course this wont be reported. The black man can do no wrong, and when he behaves as he is physiologically disposed, he is the victim in some sick way. The young black man is a violent predator waiting to explode. The only thing that prevents it on a wider scale in the West is the police, incarceration, and them killing eachother.

    Kudos for having the bravery to say what most conservatives think but are afraid to say

    People are pretty upset by this, it isn’t controversial in the slightest.
    Controversial issues are talked about more than issues that are not controversial.
    No one is defending the black kid — he deserves to be put away.

    Now if we had dozens of posters here saying the black kid didn’t do anything wrong and was within his rights while distorting legal principal and agreeing with the police that looked at the video and “said this is fine” there would be dozens of pages by now and a national outcry.

    I am shocked you cannot see the difference as you typically have tons of nuance in your examination of issues...

    I don't think so. MOST Conservatives are very mainstream in their racial/ethnic outlook.

    I was being sarcastic, I tend to do that too much...but there is also a shred of truth to what I said.

    cd8ed, there are good and bad people in all walks of life, on that I believe we can all agree. The purpose of this thread is not to rehash what we already know, but to see for ourselves how race will/won't dominate a headline when it suits a narrative.

    That is a very unfortunate truth — this kid exemplifies that.
    Do you see a difference between the two events?
    How many people have justified what he did?
    Did police immediately arrest him?
    Did he set up a go fund me asking for donations?

    You'd be outraged if this were an old black man being beat by a young white man in a nursing home. So would everyone else. It wouldn't be mere outrage though, race would become the central talking point, you wouldn't be able to escape the coverage of the incident. You would support that talking point, the outrage, the coverage.

    But in this case, you want to be evasive and whatabout-ish. You haven't even condemned the beating. Do you hate white people?

    I think the difference between the two events is one, this one, is cut and dry. The other event is open to which story will people believe or who tells the better story, and so on.

    That is what the left wanted. Identity politics, all things Gender Ethnicity and Race. Unfortunately for them, they assumed that labelling whites racists would work like it always has, but it's effect is wearing off and whites are becoming more Woke to their own identity.

    I've tried explaining to progressives, over and over again... that their obsession with identity politics (as it's oriented) is the greatest gift the klan, neo nazis, the alt right, etc, could ever pray for.

    Is that what you say when the headlines highlight the race of certain people? Race isn't a big deal to some of us, at least not to me. But on the left....well... let's just say Kamala Harris accused her own party of being racist and that's just important race is to the left.

    Maybe she's right. We've got Joe Biden telling blacks they're not black if they support Trump.

    How is this anything to do with race? this is one seriously sick individual beating on a vunerable.. why did he film this? why did he do this? he needs locking up - key throwing away - and let everyone know what he's doing time for. I work in a care home and if I saw this - oh my... I'd be on trial for GBH at the least. tis a sick world
