TL : DR Brandon Cory Lecroy of South Carolina reaches out to a White power org. to murder his Black neighbor. Lecroy spoke with a person he thought was a White Supremacist , asking him to lynch his Black neighbor . The hitman asked for $500. Unbeknownst to Lecroy the hitman was a Federal agent. The Feds were tipped off that Lecroy was seeking a hitman. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/15/us/hit-man-lynching.html?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=cur - Now here's the reason for the thread. Especially after the Covington incident, the rightwing was full-on bitching about how the media likes to stir the racial pot, how they like to publicize racial incidents and push false narratives. Yet this story is not on the prime time radar. The media is not running it prominently. Same with that story about the White guy running over and killing that Black guy. Neither stories are promoted by the media. The media isn't grasping at every racial incident (real or not) to push some kind of agenda . They pick on certain stories that have a je ne sais pas quality to it. Covington for whatever reason just had this quality. This story is just a back-burner article.
