This paper is a study of how and why Black Lives Matter in print media. Many biases exist in print media news reporting that create a negative perception towards black lives. This negative perception often form stereotypes. Using content analysis, one hundred news articles and editorials were examined from a variety of online news sources to detect bias against blacks in print media. Previous studies have shown that blacks have been the subject of bias in crime reporting. This study has shown that blacks continually face print media bias and negative public perception in the United States.
