First, it's long overdue that the Tulsa Race Massacre come to light. I was shocked when I first heard about it just days ago. I literally wondered how I hadn't heard about it before. There it is however, a tragedy and a stark warning about how even if racism is allowed to circulate in the vernacular and worldview of the ignorant, it can spread and ignite through all.
Now, as a sudden media concentration and focus, though, it's also a pretty weird demonstration of mainstream "cognizant activation".
Just wonder: What after all this time made this story-that-should-have-always-been-a-story for decades over decades, so sexy in the scope of just a single weekend in 2021? In such a lockstep and such a quality-of-presentation launch no less.
You can't deny uniform mechanisms and influences in an institution like mainstream media when something like this happens. And if you can't deny it, you can begin to question everything with more confidence. You're allowed.

I agree -- it just came out of nowhere! But like you, I was like, "how have I never heard of this before?" And I'm from the Midwest! It sounds like you came to a conclusion that I share: The media is actively shaping our reality. What we talk about, what we think about, what is important, what isn't. It has never been more clear than in the wake of Trump to Biden. To anyone paying attention, the bombs that Biden is dropping all over the world are not a problem for MSM. If Trump did it, yes, big problem. But since it's Biden no one cares. Except I DO care. I dont care who is dropping the bombs, I dont agree with it and am pissed that over half the Federal discretionary budget goes towards such efforts. They have to inflate the dollar and print money to pay for social programs, when in my opinion, instead of hurting the poor via inflation, they should simply move budget from the military to whatever social programs they want to fund. But the MSM doesn't want anyone to pay attention to war. War is lucrative and only when the orange man engages does it matter. It should show you what spineless snakes these people are on TV.Promote (0)
