It Needs To Be CED: Racial Tensions in Crown Heights. So, How Come You Didn't Hear About It?

It Needs To Be CED:

Racial Tensions In Crown Heights Again! So, How Come You Didn't Hear About It?

Written by BIG CED for The Industry

So, once again, as I do on a daily basis, I am reading the newspaper and I read a story that was a follow-up to something I came across yesterday in the New York Daily News. In Crown Heights, (King of Racial Unrest between Blacks and Jews) there was another incident of an attack that was based on racial tension. This time, it was a Black man that was attacked by Jewish men and maybe this is why it isn’t front page news across the nation. We do know that if it were the other way around, I wouldn’t have to be the one telling you about this new story!

I just find it amazing that Andrew Charles, a 20 year old college student, was attacked by 2 Hasidic Jews on Albany Ave. in Brooklyn and there doesn’t seem to be any interest in the media to cover a story that, had it been the reverse, Black men attacking Hasidic Jews, we would have been force fed the story several times during television newscasts, email alerts and blog entries.
