    In this case why is the race of the suspect material? The report refernced by Bock said that a BLM protestor was struck by a luxury vehicle; no editorial content, no suggested motive and no attempt to frame thestory to a particular narrative.....unlike the Blaze article that did.
    Actually the Blaze article I first linked to had an embed link to an earlier Blaze article which anyone would notice and could use, if they wanted to be thorough. I've since provided that link in my response using "quote" of your earlier post. I didn't say "that a BLM protestor was struck by a luxury vehicle", the excerpt from the article I linked said that.

    Considering how "race" is the main focus of these events, it is one important factor. Another is that access to this part of the freeway was supposed to have been closed off. The earlier article said that "motive" was still under investigation, along with other factors.

    No narrative framing necessary. The Blaze article merely presented relevant details MSM failed to provide.

    BTW, I recognize that span of I-5, have traveled it often in recent decades, usually do so one or twice a month still.

      And yet the initial Blaze article doesn't mention the race of the suspect either, unless I misread it.

      • Who cares about whether Colin celebrates the holiday or not. It's his right and he's entitled to not celebrate. I don't see what the big deal is.

        BTW, Colin didn't feel this way about the 4th of July when Obama was prez. I wonder why...

          Because he was in his early twenties then?

            Excellent point,

              From what I've seen they won't mention race unless it's relevant to the case. For example a hate crime. Otherwise, what would be the point?

                  What BS, the narrator is obviously bias, and there is nothing to verify the kids claim. If what he claims really happened he should have gone to the coach.
                  If I go I to a restaurant and get lousy service that waitress is having a bad day, if it happens to you it's blatant racism.

                    Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel (I actually had the honor of meeting him in person and shaking his hand once) had something interesting to say about future generations sharing collective guilt for the actions of their ancestors........he said it was nonsense. He did not view the Germans as "devils" nor did he blame the post-war Germans for what their parents/grandparents did to him and others of his generation. He said such sentiment is based on the notion of revenge/retaliation and not justice.....something many people have a difficult time distinguishing, and that such revenge/retaliation was itself simply another form of bigotry.

                    If Wiesel can come to this conclusion while being a first-hand victim, it begs to wonder why others, many generations later with no living memory are incapable of doing the same.

                      He just wants to be back in the limelight again, that's all.
                      I believe that you are correct.
                      We are not now that strength which in old days
                      Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
                      Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
                      To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                          I agree, but statements like this should not garner admiration

                            Nothing except the school confirming one of their fans made racist comments. Yes, the narrator is biased against racism. What issue do you have with that? If a waiter says 'I should have been George Floyd', that's a little bit outside the realm of just having a bad day.

                            Face the truth. This is what the majority of black people have to go through in America.
