But, just for the sake of argument, let\'s say we had a guy who played basketball for one year and then spent 40 years as an activist for whatever cause. Writing an article titled \"Ex-basketball player fights for equal rights\" could come across as massively disrespectful or agenda-based, because it colors the entire perception of the headline. The layperson who reads the headline can easily make assumptions based on it, such as \"this guy is a just a former basketball player, and not someone who\'s spent most of their lives fighting for an issue\".

You see the same outrage when headlines introduce a black person as \"Ex-convict saves stranger from burning car\" when the article is about saving peoples\' lives. Or introducing a white mass shooter as \"Straight-A student causes bloody massacre\".

So again, I don\'t we\'re reading too much into this at all.
