    No discussion of how this affects people differently based on geographic location. So, the type of worthlessness I expect from some people.

    Fox "fake" news, or Fake "fox news".

    You decide.

    I get the bias, conservatives feel the same way about CNN and the like. However, I am curious how interviewing people at random in the street or on a campus is fake news.

    Sure. Identifying a subset of a population and displaying it as it's how everyone in the demographic thinks, which can be called "telescoping" or "scaling", is an easy way for a 'reporting body' to spin a narrative.

    Does this answer your question satisfactorily?

    good enough. I don't think these kinds of interviewer ever fail to select the bits they put in their video. Lots of bias. But it is still fun stuff. And it does carry a bit of a positive message about the ability of blacks to deal with life.....

    Funny bit, but you know the college kids that were interviewed are probably very unworldly and self-centered, even that older guy probably has few if any black friends. Also, if you live in communities with few black people, you're going to be influenced by stereotypes that are currently being perpetuated by Republicans and evangelicals who are racist.

    I wasn't trying to be a dick, you assumed that. I was trying to give you a venue to ask follow up questions.

    Apology accepted. An amazing thing just happened. Two people from differing views agreed and understood each other.

    This does not happen every day. Maybe we can make a habit of it. :)

    That does look like a faculty head shot. But it could be a mug shot.

    what could possibly distinguish the two???

    I'd say get a different tone bias on it. A little too red.

    Would requiring an ID to purchase guns disproportionately target minority gun ownership?

    I also live in an urban area. As with any urban area, there are more and less wealthy areas.
