A racially-tinged violent incident in Norfolk, Virginia, was covered up for two weeks by the local newspaper. The incident — whose white victims were reporters for the newspaper — involved an attack by a group of more than 20 black teenagers, at least some of whom maintained they were avenging “Trayvon”. The victims are expected to recover.
