A white couple a was slaughtered by seven African Americans (Black Panther?) and it didn't even make the headlines, but then you have a thing like the travon martin ordeal and it's all over the news.

How do you know about this if it didn't make the headlines?

LOL at the argument that African Americans have more power in the U.S. than Caucasians do.

Do you know what usually makes the headlines? The death of a pretty, blonde, blue-eyed girl. What usually gets skipped? The deaths of thousands of African American girls.

Agreed.. I'm not really sure what the OP's point actually is.. the double standard is indeed very much what you have pointed out.

If he can, wouldn't that disprove his point of it not being news?

Also, I dare you to name a kidnapped teenage BLACK female who had a headline story. Elizabeth Smart. Jon Bene Ramsey (sp?). etc/

Ok, this did make the "headlines" since it was on the news. I don't know what you are complaining about.

How many stories of black women who were kidnapped make the front page? I usually only see stories about pretty blondes on the front page. Everything can't make the front page.

Yeah, i was just kidding. The OP suggests the possibility that racism actually exists! What are we going to do?!
