How Raw Story Obscures the Ethnicities of Suspects Accused of Criminal Activity
Under The Radar Media
Raw Story is the popular liberal news blog that is just to the left of the Huffington Post. It used to be a pretty decent source for quick news updates of the day, that is, until the election of President Barack Obama. It’s now just a propaganda arm of the Media Matters/Southern Poverty Law Center political correct mafia, and their stories are now primarily the typical far-left, Marxist and pro-homosexual agitation variety.
On November 25, 2014, Raw Story ran with a salacious local news item about a high school girl who stands accused of running a prostitution ring on Facebook. The screenshot below shows Raw Story editors using a Shutterstock image of a young Caucasian girl to portray seventeen year old suspect, Alexa Nicole De Armas.
The Shutterstock image used above brings to mind the type of young girl you see in a typical suburban neighborhood who shops with her yoga pants-wearing soccer Mom at the local Whole Foods. The actual photo of Alexa Nicole De Armas (shown in the screenshot below) shows that the image Raw Story wanted to plant in the minds of their readers is far from reality.
Why Raw Story routinely portrays criminal suspects who are non-white/people of color, as Caucasians via stock images, should at best raise serious questions about its journalist integrity. Too see a photo of the real suspect, all you had to do was click on the news link that Raw Story used in the article, or simply put “Alexa Nicole De Armas” into your favorite search engine, so perhaps Raw Story assumes their readers are either too lazy or too stupid to even do that. Maybe they are right!
Even more disturbing than Raw Story falsely portraying the perpetrator was reading through the comments section. Raw Story readers are mostly feminists, pro-homosexual heterosexuals, radical LGBT cultists and other assorted Marxist agitators so their comical assumptions and unsophisticated, childlike conclusions of news stories from imagined information based on their own politically correct bias is the order of the day. Raw Story readers routinely use gutter language involving toilet humor and sex, so a good number of them were applauding the fact that their (paraphrasing) standard, conservative-looking little White girl could get dirty and play in the gutter with the rest of the trendy sex-obsessed degenerates. They loved the fact that their lily-white criminal could be such an entrepreneurial individual, at such an early age, since prostitution is the world’s oldest profession and all.
The good thing about Raw Story is that the comments section is so heavily moderated and troll-infested that you can often shame the editors and other readers by simply noting that they are using stock photos of Caucasians to portray suspects of non-White heritage. To continue to appear credible and not raise suspicions with more intelligent readers, they may quickly remove the offending image and replace it with something more innocuous, but very rarely do they use the correct image.
