why we don't fuck with "true crime": the entire genre is copaganda 

metro.co.uk/2021/01/01/the-rac "There’s also a marked preference for victims that can be superficially portrayed as “innocent.” This depiction of crime victims diverges quite a bit from what we know about who is, statistically speaking, most at risk of #violence: young Black men; trans women; sex workers; indigenous women; people struggling with addiction; the homeless, etc. – these folks are rarely at the centre of pop culture #TrueCrime narratives." "from 2000-2019 ... Black homicide victimisation ranged from 200% to 800% higher than that for the White population during that time period"

theappeal.org/whiteness-of-tru "Think about what it means to have white writers tell the world about crime that, most often, affects Black people—or that white editors get to choose what crime is worth a book, a feature, a #podcast. Think about how this skews some people’s perception of what even /constitutes/ a crime." “Modern true crime is almost a fantasy genre.” "American true crime began at the National Police Gazette, founded in 1845."

links (especially the 2nd, much longer one) describe intense interpersonal & structural violence so heads up if you read them in full.

Facebook just hard pivots into making war weapons. The PR is WAY easier to manage.

Holy shit is this article good:

The phrase "the shock of realizing she has no agency in a culture that accepts as normal that which she experiences as degrading" cut me. It's like the impetus for every shitty act in human history summed up in 21 words.
