What propels rape stories to wide attention?

All four of the accused are black, two who had ties to the football team. One was a star quarterback as a freshman. All four were considered good kids, attending a historic black university.

It is true that rapes against white women by black men do not get the same media coverage. It is also true that the media causes more racial tension to make money.
