There is no questioning that the racial disparities in the US are evident in different areas of society. An excellent example is the attention black people versus white people get when they go missing. The media and police give more attention to the latter than the former. Dr. Whitehead calls this the “missing white woman syndrome.” She states that it goes back to slavery, where white women were lifted up, and the rest were crushed. To some extent, the media plays a huge role in promoting this as they cover cases of missing white people more than missing black people. What do you think?
