It's political, Don. I honestly believe that violence against black people doesn't matter to the media elite and political elite unless it fits a political agenda.
you're missing the most important point. It's violence perpetrated bythe govt. or it's representatives (police, army etc) or violence directed towards the govt, that makes the news. That and anything involving children or mass shootings. People killing people is not newsworthy in a country where you have approx 54 homicides a day. If they tried to report on all of them your news hour would last a week
