However, the (limited) reality of crimes in no way exonerates “reports” on the total breakdown of law and order – not because these reports were “exaggerated,” but for a much more radical reason. Jacques Lacan claimed that, even if the patient’s wife is really sleeping around with other men, the patient ‘s jealousy is still to be treated as a pathological condition. In a homologous way, even if rich Jews in early 1930s Germany “really” had exploited German workers, seduced their daughters and dominated the popular press, the Nazis ’ anti-Semitism would still have been an emphatically “untrue,” pathological ideological condition. Why? Because the causes of all social antagonisms were projected onto the “Jew” – an object of perverted love-hatred, a spectral figure of mixed fascination and disgust.
And exactly the same goes for the looting in New Orleans: Even if all the reports on violence and rapes had proven to be factually true, the stories circulating about them would still be “pathological” and racist, since what motivated these stories were not facts, but racist prejudices, the satisfaction felt by those who would be able to say: “You see, Blacks really are like that, violent barbarians under the thin layer of civilization!” In other words, we would be dealing with what could be called lying in the guise of truth: Even if what I am saying is factually true, the motives that make me say it are false.

Meh.. doesn't conform with The Narrative, therefore it is not news.
Now, if it was a WHITE man killing a 4-year-old BLACK boy, then it would be headline news, and BLM would already be burning things.
It's funny how conservatives complain about identity politics, yet we see @Scamp engaging in exactly that.

Being a giant paradox/contradiction is en vogue for conservatives.

Godstud wrote:@Scamp and @Gardener That might apply if Scamp's whole opening statement wasn't completely false. It was carried by pretty much ALL the news agencies, so his racist little rant is utter bullshit, as usual.
Are you arguing that media portrayals in the USA are biased against white people and tend to depict white peolle as aggressors and people of colour as victims?
The data seems to say the exact opposite.
