Huffpo did everything in it's power to try to hide the fact the murderers were black and this was a hate crime. Hate crime is not used in article and the teens are not charged with it. Also not stated was the fact the murderers were black; you have to go to the video to find that out. This is just another example of the media covering for black on white crime.
