Another day, another interracial assault that mass media ignores. This one comes from Lehman High School in Kyle, Texas where a video shows a black woman standing in front of a white student who is seated, and then repeatedly punching her in the face before ripping her out of the chair onto the ground and then stomping on her head. 32 year old Tiffani Shadell Lankford was arrested for the alleged assault and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony. It goes without saying that had the roles been reversed that this story would be headlines on all the prime time media outlets and Tiffani Shadell Lankford`s name would be known by everyone. But, not only has this story been ignored by mass media but there has been no protests and rallies against racism, no calls for unity from politicians, no statements denouncing this interracial attack from athletes or the Hollywood crowd, and most importantly- there has been no civil rights group that has stepped up to defend this girl. Why is that?

By ignoring these stories while exploiting stories about a smirking kid in a MAGA hat or numerous other fake hate crimes, mass media is setting a distorted and dishonest representation of what America is. In reality, by purposely distorting the stats of hate crimes, they are doing more to fuel division and racism then they are trying to end it. It is deception and purposeful divisiveness, and it is malicious. This agenda needs to be challenged.
