The mainstream media no longer reports the news, but instead reports its agenda, and the blackout over a mass shooting in Cleveland is evidence of it.

Of course, whenever a white man opens fire and either kills or injures numerous people, we get wall-to-wall coverage of the incident and know every single detail about the suspect within hours. Not only that, the airwaves light up with sensational headlines, and the 24-hour news networks breathlessly speculate about every aspect of the crime.

One would think that a mass shooting in which five people were injured and a young child killed would make national headlines, but you’d be wrong…dead wrong – when it comes to one of the left’s protected classes, we hear little, if anything, about the incident.

Take what happened in Cleveland, Ohio on Friday night. Two groups of kids between the ages of 12 and 16 were walking down Buckeye Rd. around 7:30 p.m., and when they saw one another all hell broke loose, the Daily Mail reported.

The two groups immediately started shooting at one another – yes, young teens and boys with guns were roaming the streets, making the story even more shocking – which led to five of them being injured and one of the boys losing their life. Details are slim at the moment, but police believe the two groups “crossed paths” just before the mass shooting began.

“Kids crossed paths and shots were fired,” said Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams.

“We don’t exactly what spurred this or what happened, but definitely, our hearts go out to the families of the victims here,” he added, WOIO reported.

The 12-year-old, identified as Abdel Latif Bashiti, suffered a fatal gunshot wound to the torso. He died at the scene.

The other victims have not yet been identified, but police did list their injuries in a press release Saturday morning. A 16-year-old boy was shot in the head, and remains at University Hospital. Two other 16-year-old boys were shot, one in the leg, and the other in the torso. Two 14-year-old boys were hurt, one suffering a gunshot wound to the leg and the other to the groin area. All were taken to University Hospitals for treatment, and their conditions are unknown.

Sadly, Bashiti wasn’t directly involved with the shooting, which police somehow don’t believe was gang related. According to the Cleveland Ohio Remembrance Page, he had gone with his father to work at the family’s liquor store when the thugs outside opened fire.

Ironically, when descriptions of the suspects were released, it only listed them as wearing “black hooded sweatshirts,” but their race wasn’t ever mentioned.

Thankfully, Bashiti’s father wasn’t injured; however, it’s hard to imagine the loss he’s feeling right now, and our prayers are with his family.

Perhaps this type of crime is extremely common in Cleveland, or maybe the media has just become apathetic to violence in inner-cities. But regardless, the fact these kinds of incidents rarely make national news only enables them to keep happening.

Maybe if the media didn’t selectively report shootings based on their agenda, we could finally bring the national attention necessary to stop the horrific violence plaguing black communities across the country.
