@AwareNetConnect I guess my entire point is that “rising tensions” may well be nothing more than “rising media attention”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AwareNetConnect

@AwareNetConnect Indeed. But a key question is “rising tensions”, as opposed to this week’s blip thanks to media pushing a racial angle.
