Whenever a young black male is unjustly murdered in a racially charged incident, the news media criminalizes the black male by purposefully broadcasting negative imagery of him.
This time his name is Mike Brown.
The 18-year-old was gunned down in the street on Saturday by a Ferguson, Mo. police officer who claims Brown went for his gun. The news media immediately set about to prove that Mike Brown was a thug who deserved to die.
For instance, the media chose to ignore positive imagery of Mike Brown wearing his high school graduation cap and gown. He was set to start college today.
Black Twitter united to expose the news media’s racist agenda by creating the hashtag #IfTheyGunnedMeDown.
