Pioneer1 Posted March 11 Report Share Posted March 11 A few days ago 4 Black Americans were kidnapped in Mexico. Unfortunately 2 ended up being killed and a third was shot but survived and was found and rescued along with the fourth victim. Any thoughts on this issue? I think that so far the U.S. media has been doing a pretty good job of portraying that these were indeed Americans instead of simply portraying them as a group of Black folks riding around Mexico getting into trouble. As I expected, a few media outlets were questioning why they were down there in the first place and were trying to blame the victims instead of the perpetrators.....typical racist narrative anytime Black victims are involved. But other than that, I can't really find too much fault in how the media has covered this. It's interesting how the Gulf Cartel has issued an apology over this incident and even claimed to have handed over those guilty of carrying it out. I wonder why they did this? Were they afraid of the response of America, or did they do it out of respect for the fact that the victims were Black and Black Americans are usually left alone when it comes to international crimes.?
