Today, the American MEDIA portrays only what fuels the fire on racial tension. They claim and throw around the words protest when in reality, riots are stirring up. The media should be used as an outlet to bring all races together instead of further driving them apart. Where airing race riots promote violence and killings, why not air togetherness and the communities which instill values of togetherness help drive a decrease in racial tension.
Last week the media tried to characterize the increasingly violent protests in Baltimore as "peaceful." Now, even after the demonstrations have turned into outright riots, some members of the media are still trying to excuse the violence or are otherwise downplaying what has been going on since last Thursday.
