The Few Do Not Represent the Majority

Mayor Bill De Blasio asked the media to stop portraying the few who use racist and bigoted comments about the NYPD as the majority.  The mayor said that the vast majority of people believe in peaceful and respectful protest and the NYPD protected people’s democratic rights to march peacefully.
The mayor said he did not see reports on the good and decent people who are using the political process respectfully.  He asked the media what they were going to do.  “Are you going to keep dividing us?”
Finally the media is reporting on someone who is asking out loud if the news media will continue to fuel a debate that enables the minority or if the media will tell the world about the majority of good that is happening.  The mayor rightly points out, “You are all part of this too.”
