FIRST, Let me say, I pray that Gabby Petito's body is found soon and the perpetrator is brought to justice (yeah, we know who did it)
My next wish is that our INDIGENOUS Mothers, Sisters, Daughters, Aunties abductions and murders would get the same news coverage.
Please read articles on the differences in press coverage linked in this story.
No missing Native women get this type of coverage. The recent DATELINE piece on one missing Native woman was from a years old murder. Mollie Tibbet's murder coverage was IMMEDIATELY a National story.
Why are white women valued so much by our media over others? Is it deliberate racism? Or simply ingrained that women of color are worth less?
The comments are open
UPDATE: FBI announces they have found a body in WY consistent with what they know of Gabby. PRESSURE works. Again, I wish they would put this kind of pressure for all our #MMIW who deserve justice, and to be found. FBI STATEMENT
