    I think it can be blamed on the mass media and entertainment.

    They can indirectly set opinions in to people's minds and they have a tendency to be racially disproportionate in how they portray certain activities.

    That is despite their claims of maintaining political correctness. You look at internet for example. Most ads for leisure and travel show whites, most ads for gardening show whites, most ads for humanitarian issues show blacks, most ads for science, research, and technology show whites, most ads for basketball and sometimes other sports show blacks, look for articles about fashion and beauty most will show whites.

    That has to change and should have been done a long time ago already.

    Mass media plays a part, but if you make those changes to mass media, then people also have to stop complaining about those changes. The are some who view changes in diversity as "having something shoved down their throat." However, the continued harassment goes beyond any influence of mass media.

    Read the story carefully.

    The trouble started in the summer of 2017 with the colors red, black and green. Mr. Peeples painted the color bands on a tree and on the porch of a gutted home facing the park. He said they were the colors of liberation, of Pan Africanism. The women said they were the colors of a gang.

    Pan-African flag - Wikipedia

    “We were like, ‘You can’t paint them trees.’ That’s when the threats started. He yelled it out from the field. He said he would kill us, burn down our homes and kill our dogs too, so we went and filed the police reports,” Ms. Morris, 37, said in an interview. “We went down to the prosecuting attorney’s office and told our story and it went to court. We didn’t want it to go that far. We just wanted the threats to stop.”


    ## Certainly a guy who feels obligated to paint what amounts to black power color on trees is not a guy who would threaten white people actually...

    smh come on

    Yes, we should trust the words of people who invented a pedophilia accusation. But I guess that's how it goes, if a black person is targeted, they are guilty, the words of their accuser are always true.

    It’s the media’s JOB to divide us and increase hate. That’s why watching the news can literally ruin your day.

    There are mostly white people in our community. Some of them have gotten arrested for maintaining gardens, usually the indoor variety.

    No I do not think a "black" person is guilty simply because they are targeted. All I am pointing out is there is two sides to every story and a bit of truth on both sides.

    They invented a fake gun and a fake sexual assault, yet there is a little truth to their accusation? Sure...

    There's a reason why their case was thrown out in court when the truth came out.

    And one wonders who is doing the real dividing. Could not be a white guy living in the UK who posts racial stories about the US all the time...nah

    Where did anyone say this equates to all white people targeting blacks? And what does this vacant attempt to change the subject have to do with your poor assessment that the people targeting this man were trustworthy despite their repeated lies?

    There may be lies on both sides, but in this story, the lies seem to be concentrated on one side.

    The title of this thread seems to be race baiting at the very least.
    Seriously.

    Some people don't understand that pan-African colors is simply expression. You see plenty of pan-African colors painted around white people, it's not a problem, it not meant to start a conflict. But calling the police and saying someone has a gun or saying they're a pedophile, that's meant to terrorize.

    And don't worry, you living in Germany does not mean anything.

    That sounds so unsafe, I would only feel safe if everyone had a gun since that would eliminate all violence...
