I have one simple question for you, what would have happened if they were white instead of black? IMO, it wouldn't have played out like this given that change, and that is the point. Also, soley basing your stuff on Fox News is not a good idea.
This was not racially motivated. The fact is that 90% of people really don't care who it is that's breaking the rules, but more that "they're breaking the rules. They're in the wrong.". If a bunch of white hoodies walked into a Starbucks and loitered, odds are incredibly high that they'd be treated the same as these guys. Most media outlets (specifically in America) like to push the race narrative because it makes them look good to the incredibly vocal minority who I'm not going to name and (oh boy here we go) it tries to keep African-Americans in this docile, entitled mindset that Kanye West of all people is trying to eradicate. Pressing the Fox News point, I agree that having multiple sources (from both left leaning, right leaning and centrist media outlets) in the OP would be much better.
