Is it surprising that the news will cover predominately white people? There are lots of em. The part that I can get annoyed at is the gender part. Somehow someway, a missing girl is more important (evokes more emotional response) than a missing boy by significant margins.

The paper does point out that proportionally, the media, by extent their audience therefore police, gives two shits about blacks.

Is that surprising? Ha. "We're not a racist country" by what metric? 🙄 "We are for gender equality" by what metric? The rosy horseshit people espouse then do things contradictory to it. Happens everywhere and people only want to be "better" when called out and punished for it.
