Sister Toldjah is....well....telling you about media double standards

I was just perusing the halls of the SisterToldjah site and came across a story that I was vaguely familiar with, involving the grizzly death of a Knoxville, TN couple last year. The alleged perpetrators were African-American and it is Toldjah's supposition that due to the reverse racial role in this case, the story was largely ignored because of our liberal media. I'm not sure if I agree with her assertion but I do believe that the media by in large has a liberal slant (which led to the development of Fox News as a counter) when it comes to their portrayal of people of color. Whether it's Three 6 Mafia's new MTV show, Adventures in Hollyhood or the preponderance of minstrel programming (in print, TV and radio), their existence is by in large due to liberal bias. Take a look at an excerpt from the SisterToldjah article in question:

Imagine this: A young black couple in Knoxville, TN go out for a night on the town, but instead are viciously murdered - their bodies mutilated and burned, after being brutally gang raped, sodomized, and tortured at the hands of five white thugs. The story easily makes it onto the front page of the national news, right? For weeks, we hear of little else outside of the manhunt that takes place for the suspected perps. Pictures of the perps are shown on national TV, and the mediots play up the racial angle of the crime, which leads to commentary from purveyors of ’social justice’ exclaiming that the white suspects are guilty of what ‘all’ white people are guilty of, and that’s ‘hating black people’, in this case, to the extreme.
