I agree so much with all the others about the media and the issue of them making something more than it is. Unfortunately I also believe in the right to free speech. Unfortunately I think it comes down to the lack of education in our country and the ignorance of the folks taking what the media is reporting and distorting it.
You mean to tell me that black/white/asian.... teenagers are not killed every day by someone that is a different race then they are and none of that makes it to the media outlets. Are those lives not as important because the media can't stir the pot enough and make it news? You either trust the system and take all verdicts (guilty AND not guilty) or you don't trust the system BOTH guilty and not guilty. This double standard that people can pick and choose when the system in right and then pick differently when the system in wrong just because it wasn't the verdict they wanted.
BTW I don't remember, did a whole bunch of white people (or blacks for the matter) complain when OJ was found not guilty or where those same people that are protesting now, protesting then.
