POLITICAL: The media tries to sway the public perception

Let Criminal Faces Be Shown
By Jeffrey Folks 

*** begin quote ***

Lying has consequences. In terms of the media depiction of blacks, the consequence is that society is less likely to face the problem that exists in the upbringing and childhood conditions of a large number of black Americans. Blacks commit murder at a rate of seven times that of whites, according to one source. But among young black males, murder rates are far higher, because 90.3% of homicides are committed by males, and because we are speaking of young men. Young black males between the ages of 14 and 35 constitute some 3% of the U.S. population, but this small demographic is responsible for nearly 50% of the murders. The demographic could be whittled down further by specifying location and income level. Middle-class blacks residing in affluent suburbs are generally not criminals. Nor, for that matter, are regularly employed working-class blacks.

It’s a social cost that makes racism “reasonable”.
