I’ve noticed that too. I wonder if they received complaints from readers would they change the tone or at least the facts which they conveniently forget to add. @Theresamonet do you know what news source published the article?I've noticed that if a black person is involved and even the victim, they still won't tell the story right. Favor always goes to the other and not the black person. I'm thinking of the Asian nail salon woman hitting the black woman with the broomstick and that stick connected multiple times but they used such passive language to describe it that if you weren't paying attention, you would've missed it.
If it were the reverse, the language would be hyperbolic in how "vicious and animalistic" the black person behaved, no matter how mild their demeanor. I'm so glad camera phones are everywhere now. Otherwise, we wouldn't have a shot because the deck is always stacked against us.
