WHY THE F*** CAN'T THIS BE THE NATIONAL NEWS?

Can't make it clicky but basically, it was an African American young man and his friend. They didn't kill a white girl, no. They helped SAVE her.

She was kidnapped nearly 2 hours when the boys recognized the girl in the car to be the kidnapped girl.

They chased the car down on their bikes and the kidnapper stopped the car and let the girl out.


Yes, it's "big-ish" news but the President isn't going live to thank them. No one across the country is going to thank them for being positive role models for black youth. No one is blasting this all over the news.

How about we have some positivity here and show that race holds no boundaries if you see past the mob.

It is? And they are being praised? The president is a busy guy. He can't stop everything to make a live televised statement when things, good or bad, happen.

Unfortunately, positive stories like this aren't what people want to hear. The media reports the negative because that's what society feeds into and wants to hear about. It's sad. Good for those boys, the world needs more like them.

It was 1 boy who seen her, she was pushed out of the car and the boy took her to the police area. He is 15. I believe it was on the news that is how I seen it.

I agree. But good things are not newsworthy, the media thrives on drama and negativity and breeds it to cause panic.
