This feels staged

Ace: "Video of Black Female College Student Harassing (And Grabbing) White Male Student Over His Wearing of Dreadlocks Goes Viral; College Allegedly Investigating the Incident."

My radar starting pinging like crazy upon seeing this video.  The staging is perfect with the filmer slightly above the "incident" and the audio is super-clear.  Then the conversation between the filmer and the assaulting girl is too quick (i.e. rehearsed) to be spontaneous before she blocks the lens - drama!  This feels like a fake-but-accurate lesson in "consciousness raising."

I, also, think it is staged: to perfect.

These days, I prefer my news fake-but-accurate. And so does everyone else.
