American Racist Magic

Dear America,

Why was it that, in most of the reporting for the story regarding Chris Lane’s horrific murder, you first showed photos that all three murderers were black?

Then, you showed photos of just two of the three murderers, both of whom were black?

And then, after days of reporting, you finally showed a picture of all three murderers, one of whom was white:

But most of your reporting is STILL focusing on the two black boys instead of the white boy who, through American Racist Magic, was the only one not charged with murder even though he drove the getaway car (while one of the black boys was a passenger in the car and didn’t pull the trigger)?

Also, why haven’t you yet apologized to the black boy you misidentified in the first photo?
