A black man, Jermaine Jones, 29, was gunned down in the street on the outskirts of Ferguson, Missouri Oct. 18, a few hours after his sister, Margaree Dixson, 35, had been shot half a mile away.
If this is the first you’ve heard about these murders, it’s because their killers also were black.
To most in the news media, “black deaths matter only if the killer is a white cop,” said Italian journalist Enza Ferrerri.
Which doesn’t happen very often. Of 1,265 people killed in St. Louis between 2003 and 2012, 1,138 (89.9%) were black, according to University of Missouri-St. Louis criminologist David Klinger, a former police officer.
