Of course not. There were 78 cases in 2016 of white people being brutalized by airport police when they refused to disembark on command: broken noses, broken fingers, 2nd degree carpet burns, black eyes, etc. Did you read about any of them? Of course not. Because the Liebral media didn't deem them newsworthy. Try to Google these stories. Nothing comes up, right? That's because there's a media conspiracy to suppress these stories. The only reason I know of them is because my uncle is a higher up in the TSA where they track these stats, although they can't make them public. For security reasons.
Far more likely is there isn't video of the other "78 cases in 2016". And for the record, no matter what the subject, when someone says "XYZ happened, but you can't find out about it" always raises severe doubt. I have no doubt there have been multiple forced disembarks by multiple carriers. What made this news was not the passenger's race, but the video and the excessive nature of force used.
