Ten Days For Missing Pregnant Black Woman To Hit MSM?

By  | 


In The Agora has a very interesting post about race and media coverage. They basically point out that it took the main stream media an amazingly long time to report on the disappearance of a pregnant black woman. They then pose the question “What if she were white?”

Considering the hysteria surrounding the case of the “Runaway Bride”, which made complete fools out of the media a few months ago, I think In The Agora has a good point. Especially since this woman went missing on July 18th!

Read the story for yourself and tell us what you think.

    The “runaway bride” story wasn’t the half of it. The MSM has been tripping over itself to cover every last nook and cranny of the Natalee Holloway case (another young, white, photogenic woman), and that case isn’t even in a location where the MSM’s viewership/readership would be in any position to assist the search in any way.

    A lot of stuff happens in the U.S. that is not reported. It is likely that it is racist. It is also likely that a few days missing could have meant she was at her boyfriends place.

    Black, white, yellow or purple we all need reported if we go missing. For many it just is not being done.

    Who knows why the woman was not reported in the news. We will never know if it was because she was black. Sometimes things slip through the cracks, sometimes other things are considered more newsworthy.

    I think Jeannie said it best in the previous comment, “Black, white, yellow or purple we all need reported if we go missing”. Either way, it’s certainly a sad thing for this sort of thing to be happening for any reason.

    This can be related to the story of the run away bride. As a matter of fact, this issue or concern will really grab the attention and interest of the people who will be seeing this most especially to those women who are planning to get married.
