Ignorance Is Bliss

The staggering media bias concerning race and nation, was on display for all to see last week. Based on the volume of coverage, the civilian deaths in Iraq have apparently been accepted as status quo, and receives little, if any attention, in sharp contrast to last week's terrorist attacks in London.

A predominantly "white Christian" nation experiences terrorist attacks, and suddenly it's Terrorpalooza.

Yesterday, in 6 separate attacks, 48 people were killed in Iraq, just one less than the amount of deaths in London. Where is the outrage? Where is the 24-hour coverage? Where are the "WE WERE WAITING TO DIE" banners in 45-point-bold-type-font splattered on the likes of CNN and FOX? Where are the hour long specials on the cables news?

The total civilian death count in Iraq is up to 25,814, but sadly most of the population are simply oblivious...
