Colin Flaherty is no stranger to the issue. He has been writing about race issues for years.
His latest is Media Ignore the Tsunami of Black Violence against Cops in which he catalogs examples of how the media present the violence between police and black men as racism by police against black men. Unfortunately for anyone wanting a balanced look, they ignore violence perpetrated by black people against police.
Here's one anecdote:
In Syracuse on Father’s Day in the ghetto, 500 black people were blowing some weed and shooting some guns when a female cop showed up.
The videos show the crowds fleeing the gunfire as the officer runs towards it. When her backup arrived, they found the cop on the ground, surrounded by a large group of black people beating and kicking her and trying to steal her gun.
One black man was running around, pleading for a gun to shoot the police.
The next night, the cops returned and received similar scorn, hostility and violence.
The local papers pretended they had never heard of anything like that before, when, truth is: That is a regular part of life in Syracuse.
Maybe the media ignore it, not because it goes against what they are convinced is the narrative, but because to do otherwise would not portray them in the politically virtuous light they seek.
It's no help when the President of the United States encourages a false narrative. One wonders what, if anything, the next president will do.
