(Disclaimer: We not support racism nor, marxism or advocate for it in any way shape or form. ) Recently, there was a case in which the press covered about 8 boys who were “accused” of racism for posting a photo that only appeared to depict a hanging of a black dummy and one wearing a hoodie. The case was the Phillipsburg Wrestling team. The photo was snapped, then placed on facebook so the oppsoing team could see it. The boys wanted to send the messdage that we will hang you. The facts however, behind the case only support that the boys did something stupid and were unaware that they were racist in nature and of its consequences. In other words, it was a prank. None of the articles mentioned the fact that 90 percent of the dummies manufactured for wrestlers to practice on are black or brown leather. It was stupid of them to take a picture like that and then post it on facebook.
The other lynchmen in the case are the media. Considert the fact that if it was reversed, and a white man was hung, this would not be talked about. The media outlets in question are the Warren Reporter, Daily News, AP Press and several others.

The ages of the boys are from 14 on up to 18. Several newspapers were not permitting commenters to comment on their blogs even when the comments were well with their guidelines.
Tonite we examine, “Did these media outlets overstep their bounds skew their and did they skew the articles to race-bait”?
