Don't get me wrong, I will feel sadden for a missing white girl as I would a missing girl of color because I am a father myself. However their is no equality in the rescue efforts.

    2) I can honestly say that is a first for me . I don't think it is necessarily wrong to connect Jesus to their race. I just think they do it because they believe that a perfect being should look like them.

    3) I know this for a fact in the Black community because I witness it.
    1. Media attention doesn't cover the "why" you see more white girls getting covered by the news? It doesn't address the actual stats or the actual reasoning behind them. That's my issue here, you haven't looked into it you've just made assumptions based on your own preconceptions.

    2. We're Catholic, we have a lot of religious images a family favorite actually has him with darker hair, dark eyes, and olive skin but there's a few white Jesus images too. I think you're partially right, people can be very ego/ethnocentric but I think it really comes down too relate-ability.

    3. You don't know it for a fact if all you have are personal experiences to go on. I've never seen racism towards black people in my area but I have seen a lot of racial slurs directed towards white people so if I were to rely solely on my personal experiences then that would be the form of racism that exists. I think a higher level of accountability is absolutely necessary, you made a claim and you're trying to back it up based solely on your personal experiences which isn't enough unless you're omnipotent and omnipresent and even then people would still be asking for proof and I'm not saying that your claim is wrong, I wouldn't be surprised if it was right given how long we have been media bombarded with images of thin white women as being the 'ideal' beauty form but I'd need recent studies to back that up given how much society has changed where you have people like Hale Berry, Beyonce and Tyra Banks who have become front and center as examples of beautiful strong women.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    Those of us who weren't exposed to liberal revisionist history remember who those Turks were and especially Hadji Ali, known by most informed Americans as "Hi Jolly."

    But that was back before socialist/progressives would proclaim that Turks were no longer were to be consider to be whites.

    Even though the last confirmed sighting of a camel in the Mojave Desert was during the late 1950's, there are still those operating meth labs in the Twenty Nine Palms area reporting seeing a camel off in the distance.

    If you were an American citizen and did understand the post, you wouldn't be one of the 52% of uninformed Americans.

    The post is really about the dumbing down of America and how the political left in America divides and puts everyone in an individual sub category based upon race, ethnicity, income, education and socioeconomic status.

    But if there wasn't a gay judge on the panel, she could have been the winner.
