After news of Brown's death broke, media-watchers carefully followed the narratives that news outlets began crafting about the teenager and the incident that claimed his life. Wary of the controversy surrounding the media's depiction of Trayvon Martin -- the Florida teen k!lled in a high-profile case that led to the acquittal of neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman -- people on Twitter wondered, "If they gunned me down, which picture would they use?" Using the hashtag #IfTheyGunnedMeDown, users posted side-by-side photos, demonstrating the power that news outlets wield in portraying victims based on images they select.

On Monday, Twitter user LordSWVP tweeted out a photo driving home another point: Media treatment of black victims is often harsher than it is of whites suspected of crimes, including murder.

That's how the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal chose to present the story of Amy Bishop, a former college professor who eventually pleaded guilty to k!lling three colleagues and wounding three others at a faculty meeting in 2010.

And that's the headline AL.com ran about the shooting death of a 25-year-old black man in Alabama earlier this year.

This is how the Staten Island Advance covered the case of Eric Bellucci, a mentally ill New York man who allegedly k!lled his parents.

Meanwhile, NBC News ran this headline during ongoing coverage of the Trayvon Martin k!lling.

This Fox News headline quoted friends shocked that 15-year-old Jared Michael Padgett had entered his high school heavily armed and k!lled a classmate, injured a teacher and took his own life.

But in Florida, this headline in the Ledger focused on a police account that made the death of a black 19-year-old seem somehow expected, or at least unsurprising.

In the wake of the mass shooting in Santa Barbara, California, earlier this year, the Whittier Daily News offered a headline showing one man's disbelief that Elliot Rodger could have committed such a crime.

Earlier this month, the New York Daily News ran this headline, carrying comments by the Ohio attorney general that appeared to defend police after k!lling a black man at a Walmart.

After being involved in a minor traffic incident on the highway, an Alaskan woman went on a major racist rant towards the driver of the other car.

The video shows a man getting out of his car and approaching another car with a woman already screaming unintelligibly. As he gets near, the woman releases a torrent of hate directed at him for “nearly running [her] off the road.” Things start off badly, with the woman claiming, “If I had a gun, I would shoot you!” Then she decides just k!lling the driver isn’t enough, adding that she will k!ll “your kids and your goddamn mother. I’ve got people who will do it.”



As he tries to defuse the situation, she calls the man a “f*cking Muslim” and later asks him to confirm that he is, in fact, a Muslim. He replies that he is. “Yes, ma’am. Proud.”

Apparently that wasn’t the answer she was looking for because it sends her into another hate spiral that ends in, perhaps the greatest word salad of hatred anyone has ever mustered: “You son of a n**ger-loving atheist loving bi*ch.” It’s like every racial and cultural hang up this woman has condensed into a single sentence. Oh, and she also accuses the man of blowing up buses full of school children. She seems nice.

Near the end of the video, the woman physically attacks the man, jumping out of her car and running towards him in a bout of fury. “I’m gonna goddamn k!ll you! I’m gonna goddamn k!ll you!” Then she gets back in her car declaring “I’m going to run over you,” before speeding away.

It’s absolutely nuts, but props to the guy for keeping his cool during the entire ordeal. I doubt many of us could keep our composure while being a.ssailed with threats against our families and hate speech.

Its definitely alive and well in individuals, my point was only that whole races shouldn't be classified as anything based on the actions of some people who just happen to be a certain race
