Opinion: Actions, coverage of protesters leads to no good

I am 77 years old, not stupid and see a civil war looming on the horizon thanks to media.  

I don't understand why media gives exposure and glorification to protesters with their constant coverage. It is no longer about police brutality, but now the Black militants and white supremacists are getting exposure thereby fueling a revolution I believe will happen. 

What happened to the common man and common sense? Stop filming these troublemakers.   

I am a Southerner and do not appreciate anyone, white or Black, defacing statues, demanding they be removed or tearing down themselves. My heritage means a great deal to me.   

I am not a racist, was not raised that way, but Black militants can change my mind. So sad.
