Lest we forget the fallen

It took just two weeks for the mainstream media to de-focus on the killing of eighteen year old Michael Brown, Jr., an unarmed black teen killed by a cop in Ferguson, Mo., and re-focus on  the late Douglas McAuthur McCain, of San Diego, Calif.

Again, this type of rhetoric objectifies young black men who cannot defend themselves because they have been silenced by death. I'm not being told anything about McCain other than he was a black American turned bad. There's that negative image again...

The latest picture of a black terrorist is a corpse who is still frightening, a poster child for ISIS violence labeled "One Dead Jihadist."

What about these American poster boys: Mark Zimmerman, Daniel Pantaleo, etc.... What can we do to stop this list from getting longer:
