For years (at least since the early 2000’s), I’ve suspected that the news media just covers their preferred “flavor du jour” topic.
We should now be certain of it. Look at how many “white cop shoots black folk” stories we’ve had in less than two weeks . . .
North Carolina sheriff waiting to release body cam video of deputy shooting of Black man despite protests
Ohio shooting: Columbus police kill black teenage girl
Police body camera footage shows fatal shooting of Black man in Honolulu
The latest on the police shooting in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota
Cop Kim Potter resigns after fatally shooting Daunte Wright, police chief also quits
We had hardly any of these for months, but now all of sudden . . .
Of course, this couldn’t have anything to do with the timing of the Derek Chauvin verdict. Nah.
