A white grandfather, 73, and his grandson, 23, are dead after two black males and a black female raided a property in Piedmont, Alabama which was flying the Confederate flag.
The city of Piedmont is nearly 90% White, and it is not uncommon to see Confederate flags waving about.
The suspects involved in the case are from Anniston, Alabama which is over 50% black. There, presence of the Confederate flag has obviously been muted.
What’s interesting however is that mainstream coverage of the tragedy has ALSO been muted to a very significant degree.
VDARE has compiled a list of mainstream news headlines covering the case. Why no mention of the event as being a BLACK ON WHITE HATE CRIME?
