Guess Whose Back in the News......

JonBenet Ramsey (Agust 6, 1990 - December 26, 1996) was a child beauty pageant contestant made famous by her Chirstmas time murder and the subsequent media coverage. She was found dead in the basement of her parents' home in Bolder, Colorado, nearly eight hours after she was reported missing. The case is notable in both its longevity and the media interest it has generated in the US. After several grand jury hearings, the case is still unsolved.

Apparently people just cant let this one go, and frankly, this slightly grinds my gears. Not to take anything away for this little girls life, but I just don't understand why this country is obsessed with missing and dead white women. Black women make up over 33% of all missing persons in the U.S. Why is it that we never hear their stories?
