An MSN story, from the Associated Press, reads:
A Black man was shot and killed outside a bar by a white man in central Oregon, and prosecutors are working to determine whether race played a role in the incident, authorities said.
That’s right folks, in the very first paragraph, the possibility that this was a hate-crime is brought up – even though we can clearly see, from the story, that no motive has been ascertained.
Contrast this with the numerous cases where blacks “randomly” murder whites. I’ve cited several such cases recently, and you should scroll down to read about them.
Unfortunately, the bias is not only from the corporate media; it’s also from the government, as we read in the article:
Investigators are still determining what charges Cranston will face. Prosecutors intend to seek an indictment by presenting evidence to a grand jury before Oct. 5, Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel said.
“The question I have to decide is whether Cranston’s decision to shoot was motivated in part by (Washington’s) race,” he said. “At the end of the day, it comes down to what was his motivation at the instant that he committed the crime.”
That’s right, they’ll be actively looking for any excuse to call this a “hate-crime.” Perhaps I’m mistaken, but I don’t recall that prosecutors made similar statements in ANY of the black-on-white murders we have seen recently. This goes hand in hand with one of my recent posts, where I wrote about the Oregon FBI actively seeking white-on-POC hate crimes, but showing no concern for hate-crimes against whites.
It wouldn’t surprise me if prosecutors get a bonus for finding, or prosecuting, white-on-POC hate crimes, but no bonus if it’s the other way around.
This double standard is extremely obvious, and many of us are tired of it. We want NEWS, not propaganda!
Update: It’s now October 1st, and a followup Associated Press article tells us, in the very first paragraph:
BEND, Ore. (AP) — A grand jury has indicted a white man on charges, including murder, in the shooting death of a Black man outside a nightclub in Bend, a district attorney said.
Notably absent, from this article, is any mention of hate-crime charges. This implies that so far they have found no evidence that this crime was racially motivated – but this didn’t stop the Associated Press from bringing up race in the first paragraph.
