Ferguson-like attack in Utah escapes media notice; race bias seen

On the surface, the cases appear nearly identical: Michael Brown and Dillon Taylor, two young, unarmed men with sketchy criminal pasts shot to death by police officers two days apart.

But while the world knows of the highly publicized situation involving 18-year-old Mr. Brown, whose Aug. 9 death in Ferguson, Missouri touched off violence, protests and an angry national debate, most people outside Utah have never heard of 20-year-old Mr. Taylor.

The perceived double standard is fueling resentment and talk of double standards on conservative talk radio and social media, where the website Twitchy has compiled a list of Twitter comments asking why Mr. Brown’s death has been front-page news for weeks while Mr. Taylor’s was a footnote at best.

“Black cop kills unarmed white male #DillonTaylor in Utah,” says a Thursday post on Twitter by radio talk-show host Wayne Dupree, who is black. “#LiberalMedia can’t find [their] way to cover the story.”

A sarcastic Sunday tweet from Valerie said, “CNN Please! We need the name and home address of #DillonTaylor’s killer immediately. Why hasn’t he been arrested??!!!!!”

From Mark Andersen: “Black cop kills unarmed white male #DillonTaylor in Utah. Where is @TheRevAl, @msnbc and @CNN? Is @DOJgov there? Did @BarackObama speak?”

And this: “People need to be just as angry over #DillonTaylor murder by a blk officer in Utah. He wasn’t armed!” said NeeNee in a Friday post.

Critics of the disparity in coverage and outrage said that it is actually the Brown case that is the outlier: Statistics indicate that black-on-black crime is far more common than the case of a white-on-black crime. For homicide, for instance, the FBI in 2012 found that of the 2,648 black murder victims, some 2,412 were killed by fellow blacks and only 193 by whites. (Whites also were likely far more likely to be killed by fellow whites than by members of other races, according to the data.)

Talk-show host Rush Limbaugh blamed the discrepancy between the two cases on “the liberal world view” that portrays whites as oppressors and blacks as victims.

“[I]n the current climate in the United States, a black person can never be the oppressor, and a white person can never be a victim,” said Mr. Limbaugh on his national radio show last week.

Rev. Al Sharpton, speaking at Monday’s funeral service for Mr. Brown, attacked local policing methods in the case and the militarization of local police forces, but also noted that American blacks also must learn from Ferguson.

“Some of us act like the definition of blackness is how low you can go,” the civil rights activist and MSNBC host said. “Blackness has never been about being a gangster or thug. … Blackness was, no matter how low we were pushed down, we rose up anyhow.”

Another difference between Missouri and Utah was that Mr. Taylor’s death didn’t result in riots. There were peaceful protests a week ago outside the Salt Lake City police headquarters covered by local media, but no outbreaks of violence as happened nightly on the streets of Ferguson.

CNN news host Jake Tapper acknowledged the disparity in coverage of the Brown and Taylor cases in the mainstream media, noting that the press often undercovers such topics as inner-city violence and the high rates of black-on-black crime. But Mr. Tapper said Monday that media “critics fail to see” that the greater context of a story such as the Michael Brown shooting, including the reaction it sparked in the St. Louis, in the black community nationwide, and with local authorities and the Obama administration.

    Utah is still predominantly White so you will not see much ghetto behavior, hence no drama and no media coverage.

    Maybe Working Whites need to get more ghetto? Maybe we need to quit our day jobs? Oh that’s right, if we don’t sniff corporate butt then we will be shoved out via Refugee Replacement. Oh and where are our Sharptons and Jacksons? Oops. Forgot. If you are white and poor or middle class well you are just not White in America.

    Working White people don’t count in America. Maybe I’ll join the rioters in Ferguson.

    The difference is simple. When a white youth is killed by a black cop it is assumed that he deserved it because as we all know blacks can’t be racists. When a white cop kills a black youth, the assumption is that the youth did not deserve it because the white is always motivated by anti-black racism.

    These fundamental assumptions drive much of what is going on. School discipline toward blacks? Racism in action. Prison population? Racism in action.

    Black domination of the NBA? Uhhhh ….Where’s the white racism? Why aren’t blacks excluded? Because there is no racism.

    While I am relieved to see this story get more media attention and completely agree the disparity in coverage is hypocritical, the cop in this shooting wasn’t black. I believe the powers that be used Michael Brown’s shooting to stir up the riots and discontent nation wide by race baiting and making this a “bad white cop” shooting an “unarmed black teenager.” MSM and “civil rights” leaders and even capitol hill fed this ad nauseum. But it is just as irresponsible to try and race bait people by perpetuating this as a “black cop” killing a “white 20 year old man.”
    The body cam video released shows Officer Bron Cruz wasn’t black. http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=31772096.
    I do not think that fact should take away from the shooting of an unarmed MAN that had committed no crime. I am shocked the DA saw no reason to even file for an indictment against the cop. That is a travesty. Dillon Taylor’s life wasn’t important enough by the DA’s standard to even allow the justice system to decide. Excessive force by this officer and many across the nation needs to be addressed.
    Race baiting the population into a frenzy on either side is counter-productive to society.
    It is very interesting to note that the lack of national media coverage has allowed the people of Utah and Taylor’s family to peacefully protest and not be arrested. The same peaceful protests that should have occurred in Ferguson. Too bad the residence and “bussed in” protestors couldn’t have respect for their own community and local businesses. They still don’t get that witnesses lying in formal statements only helps prove the other side case and burning down their city will never get them “justice.”
