1/n Thought I'd follow up on this () with a ProQuest search. On February 28, an unarmed Ariel Roman (white) was maced, tased, and subsequently shot twice in the back by two black police officers who were trying to arrest him for crossing subway cars.
2/n Since that day, there were 30 news articles covering the incident that show up in ProQuest.
3/n This past Monday--just a few days ago--the George Floyd incident went down. ProQuest turns up 1,338 articles.
4/n So the 'narrative' prevails (and is doing tremendous harm to the social fabric of our country...but hey, it drives traffic!)
5/n Since March 1, the Roman family has managed to raise $1,718. Floyd family? ~$2.6 mil.
6/n it’s been over 4 years since the Daniel Shaver killing, and the family still has only raised but a small fraction of what the Floyd family has raised in the space of a couple days.
7/n Poor Tony Timpa. It's been almost 4 years and only 29 articles (so I guess Roman did 'pretty well' by comparison)
8/n Using the WPost police shootings database, I'm considering do a more systematic analysis of disparities in media coverage. Stay tuned.
