Why the Biker Gang Massacre is Receiving Soft News Coverage
THE GRIO’S DAVID LOVE WRITES THAT THE MEDIA COVERAGE WOULD BE MUCH DIFFERENT IF THESE WERE BLACK GANGS
If the Texas biker gangs were Black, the media would be on this thing like white on rice. Yet even though they were armed, because they were White, they were treated as human beings, with dignity.
As ThinkProgress reported, many of the gang members appear to be not only White but a number are White supremacists with Nazi SS tattoos and patches. Just for reference, under Hitler, the SS, or Schutzstaffel, served as the Nazis’ elite paramilitary force and one of the most powerful units of the Third Reich. The SS ran the Nazi police state, the concentration camps and the death squads that went around Europe exterminating people on sight.
Although it was a mass murder scene with armed gangs who were firing on police, these murder suspects and presumed participants in the bloodbath appear to be hanging out, chilling and holding tight, just getting some fresh air. And the cops didn’t seem to be all too concerned.

Cashing in on Cannabis
As the green rush takes over America state by state, Black entrepreneurs may want to consider making the most of selling marijuana (legally). Find out why.
When Stacy Pope attended her first cannabis entrepreneurship meet-up in Atlanta last September, she didn’t know at all what to expect. “I was surprised that so many other business owners were interested in the industry. That really sparked my curiosity,” says the beauty salon owner.
But her decision to enter the legal cannabis market was solidified just days later when she saw a viral clip featuring the head of the Alaska Cannabis Club (ACC) and KTVA-TV reporter Charlo Greene quit her on-air position—during a live broadcast—to focus on her passion. “I was captivated by it. From that point on, I jumped in,” says Pope.
After months of research, the Atlanta resident is now considering a move to Colorado, where she can not only do hair but also work in a cannabis dispensary to learn more about the field. Obstacles, however, abound: Pope lacks the funds to make a seamless transition, and the stigma against the formerly illegal industry has prevented her family from being supportive. “I’m sad that it’s so difficult, but I believe this is part of my legacy,” she shares. Pope, who wants to have her new business operating by the end of 2015, is motivated to enter the legal marijuana trade while the fire is hot and as a way for her to possibility create intergenerational wealth.
