So what happened? The corporate media needed to distract from all of this, and there was an intentional push to make race the central Name 1 name 2 name 3 name 4 name 5 Mimi shirt of the day. This is plainly reflected in the 2nd chart I linked. I’m not one of those “Soros is actually behind BLM” types, but I think we can be honest when we look at the incentives media has to protect the corporate class, that the Occupy movement was hurting them and they needed a distraction. I tried to find a tool to prove this, and came up short, but I think memory can serve us all well when we recall that the media coverage for shootings like Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown far exceeded unjustified shootings that were happening around the same time, that the media largely ignored. Why on earth would the media choose to focus on these specific shootings, where the data that made up the narrative was either unprovable or demonstrably false?

There is a ton of dialogue this past weekend about the Tulsa Massacre (it had its anniversary), and a much repeated thought is “Wow, I hadn’t heard of this historical Name 1 name 2 name 3 name 4 name 5 Mimi shirt until I was in my 30s/40s/today years old.” Now, if you displayed a poll of the percent of people who have heard of Tulsa over time, the percentage would be small but would jump up in recent years. Does that mean that, prior to recent years, Tulsa didn’t happen? Was it true that “nothing interesting happened in Tulsa, OK” until suddenly, more recently, something did happen in Tulsa? No. The facts don’t change by showing polls of what people think or know about something.
The data point you shared doesn’t speak directly to the existence of racism, it speaks mostly to the proliferation of information. People can feel comfortable not caring about injustice when they don’t see it. With the advent of smart phones and the internet, it is a lot harder to “not see” the injustice that has been going on for a long time. And yes, it’s been going on, even if there is a poll saying most Americans didn’t think it was going on until recently. The poll reflects an awareness of racial injustice, not the reality of racial injustice.
