I’m sorry if this comes off as insensitive but you know I’ve always sought consistency. If George Bush didn’t care about black people because of the slow response to Hurricane Katrina, the media doesn’t care about black people with their blanket coverage of the Newtown shooting and almost non-existent coverage of kids being killed daily in Chicago.
I think a lot of people are indifferent because they figure it didn’t happen to them or they figure most of our kids in our community are gang-bangers or drug-dealers or don’t go to school, they’re uneducated, they don’t have fathers or they don’t have mothers.
— Annette Nance-Holt, mother of violence victim
Nah, it’s got to be something else….
