Here is the wiki regarding Missing White Woman Syndrome:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missing_white_woman_...

The difference in how missing persons are treated based on race is stark.

Thanks 2019...I did not know that Wiki (a favorite site) described that syndrome. The detailed table of missing women (none over 35) and the supporting citations is worth a second look. I learn something new almost every day reading these posts.

It's not that they shouldn't look for young, white women who are missing; it's that every missing person deserves the same level of concern and effort.

Yes, I've been aware of missing white woman syndrome for years. Attractive, young women or girls gone missing are hyped by the media because that's what sells. I, too, wondered why suddenly this latest young woman's missing, now turned deadly case was blowing up on the news and all social platforms. I remember a story several years back where a gunman went into a Lane Bryant clothing store and killed 5 women. The victims were all large black women, The gunman was never found. I found the story shocking, but it barely stayed in the media spotlight at all. That sickens me.

The MWWS is also a way the media always likes to portray women as victims. It seems the majority of stories on Dateline, 48 Hours and 20/20 involve the disappearance and/or death of attractive young females.

As girls are growing up, they are most often praised for being “good", “nice", “well-mannered", “pretty". There is a meme that says we should teach girls to prioritize feeling safe over being nice.

A few memes as I recover from anesthesia this afternoon. I'm not at all sure I'd make much sense if I tried to say too much. Also, the small bit of news I've heard today didn't sound great, as it sounds like some of our Democrats can't get with it ( same ones pretty much. Sinema and Manchin ) and we have several important things coming. Biden's agenda and debt ceiling.

I am not sure why we continue to give the Reps. such a long tether. For a very long time they have been much more than willing to do us in. This was going on before the other orange guy was in the WH. Once he was in they kept doing it, but they got permission to be it seems especially nasty about it all with an orange attitude.

I would like to think a couple of the holdouts on our side would get with it. We try to do everything by the book. I think the other guy and the Reps. just forgot there is a book period.
