CONTRAST THE REPORTING ON THE CENTRAL PARK JOGGER WITH THE REPORTING OF WHITE, VILE, RACIST MOBS WHO ATTACKED AND MURDERED BLACK PEOPLE DURING THAT SAME TIME.
When watching "When They See Us" please keep in mind that in August of that same year a wild, crazed, racist gang of 30 whiiiiiite, rabid savages chased three young black teenagers with baseball bats and a gun. Yusef Hawkins was murdered. The Black teenagers were only in Bensonhurst trying to buy a car when the savage, rabid beasts attacked them.
A couple of years earlier, in 1986, MIchael Griffith's car broke down in Howard Beach. Michael Griffith was Black and was with some friends. Again, a pack of wild, rabid, racist, whyyyyyte beasts decended upon the young men and chased Michael out onto the highway, causing his death.
And then in 1982 Wille Turks, a Black man, was dragged out of his car by a gang of wild, racist, whiiiiiite savage beasts, and beat to death. Yet the news papers never reported on these cases the way in which they reported on the young Black men wrongfully accused in the Central Park Case.
It is imperative to understand the role that the vile media played in ensuring that five innocent Black men were wrongfully convicted. They were active participants in knowingly convicting innocent Black youths.
Please look at look at how each of these cases were reported. I don't even know if the murder of all of the Black people by the racist, savage beasts, even made the front page.
