Behind the Protests :: What Traditional Media Never Shows

Posted on April 27, 2015 by TLC Baltimore

This past weekend thousands of men, women, and children took to City Hall to protest the death of Freddie Gray and the police brutality that has plagued Baltimore City and the nation. The majority of the protesters were overwhelmingly peaceful, but most media coverage focused on a small group who took to violence and destruction. It is extremely important to be mindful of the images and stories all media is displaying. Skewing coverage to only include the small pockets of violence that occurred in these protests is neglectful and detrimental to the cause at hand. Social Media feeds have been muddled with click-bait and protest-shaming, instead of photos like these of the peaceful contributions that have been driving the protests. These are voices and images that need to be heard.
