Coverage Of Pumpkin Fest Riot Compared To Ferguson Protests Exposes Media’s Overt Racism
(PoliticusUSA) Dozens of people were arrested and police used tear gas and pepper spray to disperse a rioting crowd after a riot broke out in the aftermath of the Keene Pumpkin Festival in Keene, New Hampshire. While the story was reported by national news outlets, the amount of violence and property damage that occurred Saturday afternoon and evening was not sensationalized anywhere near the same manner the Ferguson protests were. USA Today and CNN had rather vanilla headlines with the story. Meanwhile, Fox News buried the story on their main page and MSNBC didn’t even have the story featured on their front page.
Worse, the Keene rioters are generally not described as rioters,but rather “rowdy” students or “drunken revelers.” Further, the people of Keene are being portrayed as the victims of the riot, while the citizens of Ferguson are portrayed as the perpetrators.
There will be no jokes about food stamps or welfare, because the perpetrators are white and that’s not the stereotype. No one will call the Keene rioters “thugs” or suggest the police should have shot them all. No one will point to the scourge of white on white crime. No one will accuse all white parents of not knowing how to raise law-abiding kids.
The difference between the coverage of Ferguson and Keene is the difference between black and white. When someone tells you “it’s not about race,” know they’re wrong.
