typically they just go off of whatever information they are given.
while i will agree that there are some traces of racism throughout the media (and it will never go away for a multitude of reasons) i don’t think this is entirely accurate.
if a black/asian/latino/muslim/canadian/native american/whatever going to harvard or princeton or something did that, and there were no reports of gangs, drugs, bombs, terrorism, arrows, or holy scripture being involved, no one would claim otherwise.
and likewise if it were white kid dressed like a thug, born and raised in the ghetto, and inked with some gang signs, people would call it a drug/gang related crime.
i’m not denying the fact that racism exists, but i will say that this is not a place to pull that card.
