I'm sure this is already everywhere by now, but...

Thought I'd post the picture just in case. The media is definitely to blame here too. It should be noted that while the black/white - loot/find difference is glaring, there are two other facts that make this situation possibly less racist: (1) The second picture says that the couple "found...from", which leads me to believe that it might have formerly said "loot...from", since we usually use the word "at" with "find", not "from"; (2) The second picture is from France and the first is from the US, so it's not the exact same publication that's referring to folks of different colors doing the exact same actions in different ways. In any case, it's interesting to see it.
