Why Do Mass Shootings of Black People Only Get Covered When a White Man Pulls the Trigger?
Last year’s bloodiest Chicago weekend saw 82 shot and 14 killed in one weekend.
Those are the kinds of numbers that give the city its Chiraq nickname and the victims tend to be black. That’s something they have in common with the victims of the latest mass shootings.
But they don’t get the same kind of coverage because the shooters were also black.
The media has decided that black lives only matter when a white man takes them. Mass shootings don’t matter when black people kill other black people.
