Paying For Distractions and the Race Card
We, the people are to blame. We have short attention spans, grasp at headlines, and are very easily distracted. We don't demand real substance in news reporting, and we are easily swayed by what has become select-an-opinion-broadcasting. We let the "news" executives decide what is important and what goes on the back-burner.
Additionally, we let the media bait us into the race traps as well. They're everywhere, and we let it happen, invite it into our homes, and it spreads like a virus.
These too are distractions. We know it, but we keep going there.
