The disparity in media coverage has little to do with demographics, and much to do with racism. The fact is, missing black children don't matter to most of America, and missing middle class white children do.


Thanks for repeating your statement. I fail to see how giving links matters any.


You just contradicted yourself. Which is it? The fact is, most throwaways and abductions occur in cities, while most runaways come from the suburbs and rural areas and gravitate towards the nearest city, or NY (the mecca of runaways).


I didn't contradict myself. The news focuses on whats different, not what's common. If it isn't common in the suburbs, and if when it happens in the suburbs it's pretty much a given it'll be a white kid, then that explains why they are normally white kids getting covered.


And that makes it okay in your mind? Because I still see it as wrong and deplorable and offensive.


I fail to see what's so evil about it as you try to make it. The media reports only what people care about. People don't care about the typical cases in the city. They care about the out of the ordinary.


Ooohhh, now the truth reveals itself. You have a personal bias against me, so you chose to disagree with me, and attempt to defend an indefensible position. I don't want race warfare, it's not about race anymore. It is about the haves and the have nots.


I don't give a damn about you. I do care about this moral hypocracy shown by liberals, where your idea of kindness is using the government to force the rich to give what they earned to the poor, who are usually poor because of their own mistakes, and not lack of oppertunity.


However, race is still a prime motivating factor in determining what gets air time and what doesn't. There is racism in the reporting of missing and exploited children, that's a fact. Whether it's fueled by a quest for ratings or a personal grudge is irrelevant to this discussion, the fact is, the disparity exists.


That is illogical and baseless. Race is not the factor.

Succintly put. The powers that be know what makes the body tick and if you're going to make an attempt at subverting a population into the status-quo, it would require stories such as this.It helps to cultivate an 'us vs. them' attitude that is vague and includes the news source/authority figure in the 'us' classification.......who isn't going to agree with a news source condemning a pedophile and child killer?

My concern, however, includes the 'by association de facto' attitude towards the source and surrounding news stories........but the implications of which probably won't be taken seriously because of the dubious nature of at large associations.....they're varient in intensity and most people aren't ready to accept the concept of subconscious manipulation on this level.....

You're welcome. Read the links and see the people being ignored in favor of your precious white bread sweethearts, categorically ignored! What's your agenda? Are you a WP Stormer or just antagonistic in general?



I didn't contradict myself.


You're not even reading your own posts? I'll let your written statements stand for themselves. You DID dontradict yourself, you made two contradictory statements in back to back sentences, as pointed out in my last post.

A white girl going missing from the suburbs isn't out of the ordinary. It happens many hundreds of times EVERY DAY.

Keep believing I'm a partisan.
Your own prejudices have turned you into an illogical argument machine, I see your 'skills' on thread after thread, and you constantly tow the line, dig the divide a little deeper. If you're not collecting a check for your efforts, you should be.

Race is very clearly a factor. You simply don't see it because you've been indoctrinated into a constructed world view intended to dehumanize minorities and elevate white males into the realm of divinity. You are SPEWING propaganda, and calling me illogical? I'm quite well versed in the art, I have studied it for years, and I'd love to know your pedigree in the subject. I'm sure it has something to do with television and public school.

You come into a topic about a murdered little girl and start ranting about classes and races, and call me an antagonist?

You never actually pointed anything out. You quoted a paragraph, and said I was contradicting myself. How about you explain the contradiction for me?

That's like saying crime itself isn't far more common in cities. How many children go missing, stay missing, and are never found in the suburbs? It is far less then in the city.

Why you think race is the fact, I don't know. You have no evidence. It's far more rare to here about a child going missing in a city on the national news then a black kid.

I'm the one responsible for dividing people, yet you come into every topic talking about the evil rich people and how they cause every problem?

From what I've seen, you equate every problem in America to rich vs poor.

And to deny you're a liberal, when pretty much every thing you say is the same you'd here from a liberal, is absurd. You talk about socialist policy. You are a liberal.

I base my opinion off of a few basic things, like logic and common sense. There are many, many factors that decide these things, and all of them make more sense then race. All of these children happen to be from suburbs, so why isn't that a logical conclusion? Why is race what you grab at?

And how exactly am I dehumanizing minorities? Getting into an argument about race, and immediately calling the person you are arguing with racist is a clear indication of a complete lack of maturity and logic. It's the same as calling someone a Nazi, or Hitler.

You immediately claim the person you are arguing with is indoctrinated (by who, exactly, you never do say), yet you are some kind of enlightened saint beyond any realistic judgement. My views are hardly what would be considered mainstream. The mainstream media comes closer to agreeing with you then me. Go pick up a copy of the New York Times, and tell me you don't agree with the majority of the editorials inside. I know I sure as hell wouldn't.

Your hypocracy is easy enough for anyone to see. You whine when I call you a liberal, yet feel no problem with insinuating I'm an ignorant racist who has been indoctrinated by some big evil omniscent force.
