Tolerance, good temper and sympathy — they are what matter really, and if the human race is not to collapse they must come to the front before long.
- E. M. Forster
Bias aside, I suspect this is a simple mater of the photo editing software they use automatically lightening if the image is darker than a certain threashold. So, in this particular case, it's nore Adobe being biased (against darket colors) than CNN.
Actually, this does a lot to show CNN's intentions: if they can't find a white person to be blamed, use a photo editing program to *create* a white person to be blamed.It's about "fairness", right?
Wow, that's impressively blatant, even for CNN.
Yep, that IS a tad BLATANT!!! :-(
If you didn't want to link to CNN, I can understand that, but I wanted to see for myself. I found this article, which has individual pictures farther down, as well as pictures of at least 4 of the 6 in the video. The three pictures were not lightened, unless someone edited the story:http://www.cnn.com/2015/05/01/us/freddie-gray-officers-actions/index.html
Remember the OJ lightening/darkening flap?Everything that's old is new again!gfa
I know that when some dark men and women gt photo-rendered the result is so dark that it looks like an inkblot. lightening the hue is neccessary just to make the face features printable. This case may be exagerated. But I still think it is close enough that there was no deliberate human involvement in selecting the contrast levels.
White Face. Interesting...
