The media is ridiculous!

Posted by   + Show Post



All 3 stories are tragic, and heartbreaking, but where was the media for Autumn or Marley? I feel like it's a little one sided... Just saying.

You don't hear about it because it is not something that can be sensationalized for ratings. 

Why did we hear about Caylee Anthony, but not that little girl who was locked in a closet and starved by her crackhead mom, who then reported her missing?  Because it was out of the norm for a pretty girl with a pretty mother to be murdered, while it is kind of uninteresting to the average veiwer to hear about a skanky, hideous crack head killing her not very attractive child. 

You will only hear about the stuff that the execs think will make the average person tune in.

I dont care if you are or not, but did you read the memes you posted, & do you understand that they're geared towards the lack of white coverage?

Quoting Litlmama87:

PLEASE, SOMEBODY, ANYBODY



THINK OF THE WHITE PEOPLE SO THESE POSTS WILL FUCKING DISAPPEAR.



Tomorrow is give a white person a hug day. Because you guys obviously need it.

Isn't it a bit off putting, the amount of posts these past few days, that do nothing but further cause division between races?

From what I'm seeing, white people don't feel acknowledged enough. Then there's always the people who comment on the posts, meant not for awareness, but to villainous another race, that accuses black people of thinking shit is owed to them.

If someone wants to promote awareness in these tragic cases that's great, but to use a family's (white, black, hispanic, etc.) loss to push their own flawed agenda, is just as bad as the media they're complaining about.

Did you also read the link I posted of the black woman who fired warning shots and got 20 years?

Perhaps, you should realize I'm not being selective of race. Read before you assume.



Here I'll re-post the link for you again;

and this one

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57433184/fla-mom-gets-20-years-for-firing-warning-shots/


And here's this one.

Therefore your argument about my "dividing races" is erroneous.
