This has nothing to do with race. Very tragic and sad story. But its about a girl who was beaten and raped and tortured and went through hell. Its an awful story. It would be awful if she was black and the attackers were white- this is just an awful story.
That being said, I agree that Sharpton and Jackson are both the biggest hypocrites and racists on the face of the earth, as they are probably bigger racists than those they see in their minds as racists. But as far as the media goes, these are the types of stories that usually get covered- a black person committing a crime against a white person. I especially find this true in kidnapping stores. How many kids go missing a day? Far too many every day. Hundreds of kids. Who do we see on the news? The wealthy, upscale, young, pretty white girls. That's who the media likes to cover. How about murder? Watch the news, and if a white person from an affluent part of town is murdered by a black person, its a top story, or a headline on the front page of the newspaper. What if a black guy from a rough neighborhood gets murdered? He gets a 3 sentence section on the 5th page of the paper. That's just how our society works, its unfair and its horrible, but I think you have it wrong here. And this doesn't have much to do with Imus at all.
