The media has finally taken a break of their wallowing in the misery that is black males to focus attention on yet another pretty, young white woman that has gone missing. Does anybody else, beside me, see the glaring hypocrisy of my statement?

White people, particularly white males, play a very good game and put on a tremendous show of disgust when a black male is guilty or accused of doing something heinous to a black woman.
