Medium / Mary Retta / Jul 6, 2020
“I think what has been considered objective journalism has been journalism trained from the perspective of U.S.-born, cis, white males. And that’s not objective, that’s never been objective. Memphis is majority Black, it has been for a while. So, if you are going to frame the news from the perspective of Black people, it would center Black people, period, full stop. If you look at news coverage in Memphis and it doesn’t center Black people, it’s being produced for a minority of the potential audience.”
