Media Reporting of Killings

A Deafening Silence: Two Indian nationals were shot by a man yelling racial epithets. The president said nothing. That’s all we need to know about who matters in Trump’s America.

How US media would have reported it if the shooter had been..

  • Muslim... it would have been terrorism.
  • Hispanic... he would have been an illegal immigrant.
  • Black... he would have been dead.

Had it happened in Israeli occupied Palestine.
  • If the shooter had been Palestinian.. it would be terrorism by a Palestinian militant.
  • If the shooter had been an Israeli settler.. it would have been ignored.
  • If the shooter had been the Israeli military.. it would have been reported that the Israeli military had killed two Palestinian Terrorists.
