Yup. The “liberal” media mostly chooses to portray darker-skinned people as part of a vast criminal conspiracy centered on “ghetto life, violence, drugs and gangs.” And this is what “liberals” internalize and why their pity and compassion is misguided and unwanted, which they can’t comprehend and end up feeling betrayed. It’s taken me a long time and a lot of reading perspectives of various POC to see how fucked up the “unbiased liberal media” machine is. It’s really just the other side of the coin of Fox News…a different perspective based on the same faulty, culturally coded information with similar shitty results.
