Racist Media?

I was watching the news the other day and I was shocked to hear a brief clip about what the public is saying about a missing African American child. It was brought to public attention that when there is a missing Caucasian child they receive more media attention than African American missing children. There is a young African American boy that has been missing nearly 8 months or so and hasn’t received much media attention at all. I thought this would be a great topic for discussion. What are your takes on this situation???? Of course, I hope that race doesn’t play a role in the lack of media attention this child and their family had received, but I could understand where the idea generated. Perhaps the news reporters are being shut out from the families homes, but then the question of why, would arise. Is there more to the story that shouldn’t be released to the public attention?
