I found an article by the AP about a 73-year-old black man who was shot by two white police officers in Homer, La., a small town of 3,800 people. The shooting has caused much racial tension in the town. The reporter reported the details of the story. She did not stereotype, yet it's such a controversial topic. There's so many fingers pointed within the story, but this is unavoidable, since the people of the town, both black and white, feel so strongly about the incident. The reporter did a great job of reporting the facts, leaving her own beliefs and feelings out, but capturing the town's emotions. The story reinforces that racism still exists through showing, rather than telling. She used quotes from police officers, both black and white. She also used quotes from neighbors who witnessed the shooting. And from family members and people of the community to describe the victim shot. The description of the man, gathered from family and the community, really showed what kind of person he was. The reporter used much observation that she gained herself, and also information from people's observations around her.
