When The Media Treats White Suspects And Killers Better Than Black Victims.
This makes the hashtag #IfTheyGunnedMeDown so powerful. It's sad that some people have taken it to another level.
When The Media Treats White Suspects And Killers Better Than Black Victims.
Spining Crime in America. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/08/14/media-black-victims_n_5673291.html
This is by no means standard media protocol, but it happens frequently, deliberately or not. News reports often headline claims from police or other officials that appear unsympathetic or dismissive of black victims. Other times, the headlines seem to suggest that black victims are to blame for their own deaths, engaging in what critics sometimes allege is a form of character assassination. When contrasted with media portrayal of white suspects and accused murderers, the differences are more striking. News outlets often choose to run headlines that exhibit an air of disbelief at an alleged white killer's supposed actions. Sometimes, they appear to go out of their way to boost the suspect's character, carrying quotes from relatives or acquaintances that often paint even alleged murderers in a positive light.
I went from full-time stay-at-home mom for 20 years to pretty much full-time author. My passion is my family-my husband and I have been married for 40 years and have four kids, five darling grandkids--so far! But since, if a mom does her job right, she eventually puts herself OUT of a job, I'm delighted to have the privilege of working as a novelist. I could not enjoy the writing life more.
I've had a couple of non-fiction books published and contributed to some anthologies, as well as writing magazine articles. But my first love is fiction. I have written more than 25 novels and since The Face of the Earth for Howard/Simon & Schuster released in May 2013, I am now working on a new five-book series for Abingdon Press. Home to Chicory Lane releases August 2014.
A typical writing day for me begins early--often before 6 a.m.--with the business side of things: answering e-mail and reader mail, updating my Web site, reading for research. We're now empty-nesters so our routine is much quieter than it was when we had four kids at home. When my writing time begins, I have a routine that sets the stage, starting with lighting scented candles, choosing mood music on Pandora, and brewing a pot of coffee. Lately I've been enjoying coffee our son sent me from Germany. I have a cozy office that looks out over our front yard. But since I write on a laptop, I often take my computer to the kitchen counter, a chair by the fireplace, or, if the weather is nice, out on the deck where the birds, squirrels, ducks, geese, and an occasional egret, provide entertainment. I try to wrap up the day's words (usually 1000-1500 a day) by suppertime.

Even after warnings and expert advice from amongst the most credible legal analysts on the issue in the state, some event coordinators refuse to stop the practice. Making matters worse, some of the doctors writing these recommendations at the hotel conferences and other non- traditional forums, will not offer adequate support in court for their patients, when in need.
Checking in and joining us tonight, will be-Owner operator of Arbor Side, a dispensary in Ann Arbor, MI, Rhory Gould. Activist Ci Ci Taylor, and member of the Michigan Human Solution chapter. Cary Justice, longtime activist, former candidate for State House Representative.
