Is the racial tension in the United States being overblown by the media?


In the wake of the Ferguson incident and other incidents throughout the US there has been a huge debate over racial inequality. Is that actually true, or is it being blown up by the media in the effort to garner ratings? In my city (which has many different races) there doesn't seem to be much of an issue. Some state it is, but it's such a small minority. So, is this just a media game, or does the U.S. still have an issue with race relations?

    Old--How would you solve this perceived problem? I once asked a Black friend if he ever wished that slaves were not purchased from other Blacks in Africa and shipped here. His reply was short, to paraphrase, who in the hell wants to live in Africa?
