Three non-white teens were arrested for pushing a white homeless man in front of an oncoming tram in October 2021, killing the victim. Media refuse to consider racism as a motive, opting to describe this deadly attack as a ‘tragedy’ and an ‘incident’. The race of the people involved has to be deduced by the reader as they are not mentioned explicitly.
Picture the media if the roles had been reversed: a group of whites killing a black man in an unprovoked attack would be labeled a ‘racist attack’ without caveats and the story would make worldwide headlines. The white victim of this coldblooded murder will, sadly, be quickly forgotten.
