Here's a quick test: name one of the two black men who were killed by cops in Minnesota and Louisiana.
Now, name one of the cops who were killed in Dallas.
Chances are, you could name one of the first two, but the five cops have remained relatively faceless.
The media makes a very deliberate decision to humanize certain people who've been killed, while allowing others to languish in anonymity.
We've heard from Philando Castile's girlfriend, and seen videos of the aftermath of his shooting. And we've seen videos of the shooting of Alton Sterling and seen his smiling picture many times.
Will we see pictures of the cops' funerals? Will we hear from their grieving relatives?
Why not? Why do we never become acquainted with the names of whites who are shot and killed by the police, in some cases black police? (There are roughly twice as many whites as blacks killed by police.) Why do we never become acquainted with the names of blacks who are shot by blacks? And why do we never become acquainted with the names of whites shot by blacks?
Why did the media want to make Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Eric Garner into household names, while not giving so many others a fraction of their airtime?
As a result of this lopsided publicity, the public at large, particularly the innumerate masses, get all riled up thinking that the police are hunting down young black men.
As I said in the previous post, Micah Johnson was probably just an unbalanced, hotheaded simpleton. He may not even have been a sociopath. As the Dallas police chief mentioned a couple of times, Johnson felt that he was being "righteous."
Johnson's mentality was probably not much different than that of a suicide bomber whose head is filled with poisonous propaganda by the local imam. Except that in Johnson's case, that role was filled by the Obama administration, the media, and the various radical black groups he followed.
All of whom subtly encouraged, while not quite condoning, his actions.
