I agree with Martin Berger’s claim on how the media uses photographs to make black people victims of whites, as that has been used throughout history. This can be found throughout the introduction section, where Berger references photographs from different historic points. Examples of photographs include the integration of Little Rock Central High School in 1957, sit-ins performed at segregated lunchrooms in the early ‘60s, and a photograph showing the Freedom Riders with their bus wrecked in 1961. I can see why the press would do this, probably because to make white people that are sympathetic and viewers of the media could see this and learn to be equal to blacks and treat them fairly.
