Race unity in #FeesMustFall protest largely ignored

This historic act of race unity and solidarity is largely being ignored by the South Africas media – is it because their goal is to deepen racial divides rather than help heal them?

It remains the responsibility of all students to raise their complaints in a peaceful, constructive and peaceful manner, without attacking people and property, and allowing those who don’t want to protest not to do so; for the security services to ensure law and order is maintained, respecting the rights of all individuals involved; and for the media to report these things fairly, accurately and in a balanced manner.

Given what I perceive as a lack of reporting on positive instances such as this, it seems to me the media is happier to report on the negative only.
