The Rittenhouse Verdict and Self Defense in America.

Self defense is not a racial issue. A white kid shooting three white guys who were attacking him is not a racial issue. A black man getting the charges dropped against him due to self defense is not a racial issue. Yet one is blasted across every social media platform and news outlet and the other got a blurb. One has celebrities and athletes crying out, the other is just a two paragraph report. Shooting at people in your high school after a fight is broken up is not self defense, not a racial issue. And not being covered, other than locally, beyond a blurb. In major metro areas there are kids killing each other practically every weekend for months at a time, but there is no outrage, no marches. no protests. No celebrities trying to preach about the injustice of it all. Families are destroyed every weekend when the weather is hot in big cities, but it's in poor neighborhoods so there are no rallies or cries for justice. It's a byline in a police blotter report. The media doesn't point so the dogs don't bark.
