The Fallacy of Publicity
I am seeing some people cherry-picking stories about African-American men being shot by police. Obviously, the cherry-picking is being done for political reasons - i.e., to show that we live in a racist society - and is in no way done out of concern for police abuse unrelated to the specious broader claim of a racist America.
The reason - the victim is white and so doesn't fit the narrative.
