I’ll tell you when it isn’t. When the races don’t fit the narrative:
Wave after wave of young men surged forward to take turns punching and kicking their victim.
The victim’s friend, a young woman, tried to pull him back into his car. Attackers came after her, pulling her hair, punching her head and causing a bloody scratch to the surface of her eye. She called 911. A recording told her all lines were busy. She called again. Busy. On her third try, she got through and, hysterical, could scream only their location.
. . . .
Forster and Rostami, both white, suffered a beating at the hands of a crowd of black teenagers.
If you reversed the races, would this be national news? Would we be hearing from Al Sharpton?
As it happens, it is being publicized by an opinion columnist. Who says: “Forster and Rostami’s story has not, until today, appeared in this paper.”
