Just one, simple question:

When will the media choose to cover a missing black girl?

This has been going on for decades--the media hand-picking missing persons (almost always young, white females) for your viewing obsession, one after the other--and I'll be damned if I can remember them ever going apes# over a black girl. Ever. Or a brown one, for that matter.

Can you?

The same institution that beats you over the head about how racist you are is the same that oozes racial contempt with every turn of their talking f# heads.

Wait, you actually pay attention to the hypnotube "news"?

Is that the problem?

They're covering it, I'm just not paying close enough attention?

Hmm...

Any media is info-tainment at best. If they think it won't draw in viewers, it doesn't get covered. Same reason why you don't hear about the myriad suicides, murders, rapes etc. that occur daily in Anytown, USA.

The 'news' is simply an entertainment product. They have to know their consumer and put their best product at the front of the shelf.

It's a mixed up crazy world unfortunately, and for every tragedy on the news, there's 100 more being ignored.

I don't think it's a racist issue. I think it's a misanthropy issue.


Edit: For what it's worth: where I live is predominantly a Hispanic population...so that's who you always see on those "Have you seen me?" notices of missing children.

Perhaps you are talking national media? Instead of local?

Does the media hand pick them? Or does the constant pressure that family etc. put on the media play a role in what is shown on the evening news?

Why play the race bate game?
It's bad when anyone goes missing. I think we can both agree on that.
Why one gets more coverage than another might be based on any number of things.

Yeah, like racism.

It's not that one gets more coverage than another.

One gets none at all. AT ALL.

Ratings? People get sucked in more by cute white girls than others?

That's not racism?

Pray tell, what other factors do you think might be at play?

I had to edit above to ask--are you talking local media or national media?

The MSM Cherrie picks what is covered based on what agenda is at play. It is not racist, just a MO that is being played. Don’t be upset about this just be aware my keyboard friend.

They sure do, maybe even more-so than those whom they label "liberals". If you are hooked into the media's narrative then you are falling for their propaganda.

Propaganda is not aimed at one side of a divide, it is usually aimed at both so that each side is radicalized in unison with one another. Fake narratives being pushed to polarize the country, pretty obvious once you see it.

you're a racist trying to rationalise your racism by pointing the finger at others. There's many reasons why the media plays more white girls missing than black but you don't want to think about it. The media are ratings driven if they think 'black girls missing' will up the ratings I'm sure as hell they'll show 'black girls missing'.

How in the hell is that not racist?

Dafuq is the matter with you people?

Name ONE missing black girl that made national headlines.

If it isn't racism, what is it?

No idea? But definitely NOT racism, right?

So by your line of thinking if there are half a dozen missing girls every one

a different hue, from white to black.

Which ever girl is chosen by the media is being singled out just so as to being

racist to the other five

Maybe black girls just don't go missing that often?

Not like those wimpy white chicks.

Kidding.

A) the media is not a single person or institution. It is tens of thousands of independent sources all competing with each other..


B) The media is based on advertising dollars..


Cute little white kids “sell” better than cute little black kids. If cute little black kids sold better that’s all we would see.
