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.
