You had it right, people have an axe to grind. That includes the media who show people getting beat up again and again as was done last night on Fox without mentioning the assailant was white and the person beating the crap out of him was Black, but all in a wink , wink sort of way. In other words we can't say this thug was Black but let's show you that video again so you can see he's Black under his hoodie. Follow the money, or in today's world for individuals its donations and endorsements, for the media ratings.
