1. I think this is on purpose and not an oversight

People were fine with big government and social programs until people of color had more access to the services white people had mainly used until then. That is when social services started being talked about in a negative way, and the only reason they did - white people didn't mind social services when they benefited pretty much entirely white people, but they did when everyone could use them. And I think people in the media get that on some level. News is entertainment, and they are trying to entice their viewers to read the story and choose them as a news source, so they show the images that reinforce a lot of people's views.
