I just woke up to this haunted hour (4 AM EST) and said to myself Self, turn on the local news
Fifteen min of blax shot this guy, 3 blaxs shot in the leg, more blax, one shot a bullet a piece in both arms (there's sights for a reason), oh here's a new one, teens nearly kill some dude, you guessed it, blaxs; oh we have a new elevator robbery? Perps? Blax.It switches to politics, oh guess what? The demand for gibs increases, I swear it wasn't this bad back in the day.
Or maybe it was, we had no alternative news sources in the 70's-80's
Sorry, had to vent
I often ask myself the same question....was it this bad back then and we just didn't know it? I don't think it was. Thug mentality wasn't as pervasive, we didn't have social media to stir up trouble, and the instant spread of fake news didn't fuel hostilities like we see today.
