BPR: Wall Street Journal columnist Jason Riley says the race riots in Democrat-run cities following George Floyd’s death are based on a lie — gleefully fomented by the left-wing media — that there has been a surge in white cops killing black men. In reality, Riley said these incidents have dropped dramatically over the past 50 years.
However, because of the sloppy “blanket media coverage” of these racially-charged incidents — and the over-the-top amplification they get on social media — Americans are being brainwashed into believing they’re more prevalent than they really are.
Riley is shocked by the riots around the country because there is “universal disdain” for what dirty cop Derek Chauvin did to George Floyd. No one condones what he did.
