Are the media removing references to blacks from eyewitnesses’ accounts of black mayhem?
Concerning the Minneapolis Star-Tribune’s article on the riot in the Mall of America, Paul K. writes:
The article is remarkable in its refusal to identify the defining trait of the “young people” who went on the rampage. Even the witnesses who are quoted speak in generalities—”[my son and husband] witnessed a group of teenage men fighting,” and, “we were in The Limited and saw many, many teenagers running past.” Do people really talk like this? I suspect that whatever identifiers the witnesses may have applied to the horde were sanitized before publication.
It just so happens that I know the Michelle Maher quoted in the article. She would have been racially explicit in her description of the rampagers—therefore, the paper is guilty of arbitrarily rewording witness statements.
