Yet another reason why I will continue to not give a shit on the umpteenth missing white woman/girl. A white woman from Bethesda, MD goes missing in Aruba (ala Natalie Holloway) and national media of Today and GMA cover it. Young black girl Phylicia Barnes missing in Baltimore, MD was hard as hell to get missing news coverage on her nationally! SMDH
Baltimore City police on Tom Joyner morning show during the timeframe Barnes was considered missing talked about the difficulty & frustration for her status to be covered on a national level. But alas if you look like a Playboy centerfold with big boob, ugly tats and blonde hair you get coverage on your missing status ASAP! That is such a slap in the face to the family of Phylicia Barnes to me and the other missing people of color whose stories don’t get told because they don’t have the appealing look and the managers of the newsrooms don’t get the unfairness they showcase on missing story coverage! I really don’t care the attacks my comments get either! Because all I can say is screw you those whining about race once again being addressed and you’re sick of it!!
God Bless Racial Hypocrisy in America. SMDH
