Posted my theory on this in another thread and have now done a bit more research to prove my point. I think once again the media has lightened a photo to make the person look more white when going against their narrative (remember how Zimmerman was a white hispanic? lol).

Here is the photo I've seen plastered over international news and a few US news sites.

Here is the actual image un-doctored from the rally.

(The lighting effects are completely different, just look at the other people in the pictures)

Is OP trying too hard to see the ministry of truth at work? Or is their propaganda just not working as well?

if the victim was black you might have a point but that's not the case. Media would cultivate more controversy if it was racially motivated.

you can't say this is the actual image undoctored when they are two different images. perhaps it was two different cameras, one that captures light better than the other. top is punch about to be thrown and bottom is punch connecting.


and he is black clear as day in the first picture anyway.

These pictures definitely come from the same video clip, I doubt lighting changed that much, but I do kind of agree with you, my mind is conspiratorial by nature so sometimes I tend to overblow things.

I didn't know it was taken off a video clip or just actual photographs, but the 2nd pic looks really grainy and low quality compared to its more HD first picture

I distrust the media but who could possibly think that he is anything but a man of color?








Notice how he secured the wrist for the overhand left. Well played Jamal, well played :D

Did the media actually claim it was a white guy? Because even in that original lighting he doesn't look white to me at all.

But yeah, the media have done this before....
