ONE PHOTO. TWO STORIES.


By Vernalee

The media definitely influences our thinking. Use discernment to what you read, hear, or see from the media - be it radio, television, or print. Take a look at this photo. Both photographs picture the same activity, yet, the description is different. The top photo references the Black man as "looting," while the bottom photo describes the White individuals as "finding." Let's look at the associated definitions. Another word for looting is stealing. Finding means to locate. Said differently - The Black man stole food. The White individuals found food. So, there you have it! You see it in black and white (print). The story paints the picture based upon race - Black and White. You be the judge!
