Which picture would they use

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.

Shellie Zimmerman

Since former neighborhood watch fanatic George Zimmerman was acquitted of murdering Trayvon Martin in July, he has carried a gun for his own protection.

But, according to Lake Mary (Florida) police, Zimmerman did not have a gun during a domestic dispute with his wife, Shellie, at his father-in-law's house yesterday.

“I’m really, really afraid,” Shellie told a 911 dispatcher, after alleging that Zimmerman threatened her and her father with a gun.

“[H]e’s in his car,” Shellie said during the 5-minute 911 call. “And he continually has his hands on his gun and he keeps saying, ‘Step closer.”

But after Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara arrived on the scene, Shellie's story changed. She signed paperwork confirming that she never saw a gun.

Later, during an interview on CNN, O'Mara admitted Zimmerman did have a gun on him, but "He never took the weapon out."
