    mohandasgandhiTYT: White Supremacist Teens Murder Black Man In Mississippi (Graphic Warning)

    James Craig Anderson was killed by two truckloads of drunk white supremacist teenagers in Mississippi simply for being black. A section of a CNN video of the story is discussed by Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian. Watch the full CNN report here.

    This story got a very small amount of exposure on Tumblr, so I’m posting it again from TYT, particularly for their commentary.

    If a group of Black, Arab, or Latino teens beat a white man to death, this story would be huge. However, this story features a group of white supremacist teens murdering a Black man and it has received little to no exposure. That’s the mainstream media for you.

    We need to acknowledge the serious problem we have with racism in this country before we can fix it.
