We live in a polarized world, thanks to the media.
Instead of every life having “value” and equal importance, they’ve made it so that if a murder or shooting doesn’t fit their BLM agenda, they just ignore it altogether.
All lives really don’t matter to them.
Riots in Chicago break out over police returning fire on a man who shot at them, but not a word is said about all the other murders that happen every day in Chicago.
It doesn’t fit the anti-police or anti-white narrative.
And then there’s this story here – about a little boy named Cannon Hinnant who was shot at point-blank range by his black neighbor for reasons that nobody even knows at this point. And the media is once again silent even though entire cities have burned to the ground over the past several months for George Floyd – who once held a gun against a pregnant woman’s stomach and threatened to kill her while his friends robbed her home.
I’m not suggesting Floy’d life was less valuable; I actually believe his death was horrific. But I am suggesting that the media thinks his life is far more important politically than little Cannon’s life was.
And I am not the only one.
Say his name. 5 year old Cannon Hinnant was executed in cold blood while riding his bike. The accused killer is Darius Sessoms. He allegedly walked up to the boy and shot him dead in front of his sisters. Reverse the races and this is the only thing anyone talks about for a month pic.twitter.com/5V72YhAOlI

North Carolina police have charged a neighbor with the murder of a five-year-old boy who was riding a bike in his own yard when he was shot at point blank range on Sunday evening.
Darius Sessoms, 25, was taken into custody by Wilson police around 24 hours after he allegedly approached Cannon Hinnant in front of the young boy’s father’s house at 5:30pm and shot him in the head.
Hinnant’s seven-year-old and eight-year-old sisters witnessed the killing, their mother told WRAL.
Sessoms lived next door to the family, and the killing is not believed to be random. Neighbors claim he had dinner with Hinnant’s father Austin on Friday and had been over at the house earlier on Sunday.
The little boy was supposed to start Kindergarten on Monday and had just learned to write his name.
“He was just a loving kid,” his mother Bonny Waddell told the Wilson Times. “He had the biggest heart.”
The family knew the suspect for about 5-years and never thought he was capable of murder.
