I was horrified when I first heard the reports of the Trayvon Martin murder. The media reported that a black child was hunted down and murdered by a white racist who wasn’t accustomed to seeing a black child in his wealthy white gated community.
That story was created by Crump and his media analyst, Julian. It’s not surprising that the media ran with that story. It’s just hard to understand that they continued with it even after the story began to unravel. The wealthy white gated community turned out to be a multi-racial community of not terribly expensive townhouses. There was a fence and gate because it’s a high crime area. The white racist turned out to be half hispanic with a grandmother who is half black.
Even after learning the truth, the media kept promoting the original narrative.
