Most disappearance cases involving people of color quickly fall off the national radar, if they ever even make it that far — a racist double standard considering the current Gabby Petito saga, critics claim. “Missing white woman syndrome’’ — a term used to describe the perceived disproportionate attention paid to white females who disappear, as opposed to people of color — was trending on social media Tuesday as hordes of news outlets and local and federal authorities focused on the Petito case.
Petito, a 22-year-old white woman from Long Island, disappeared out West in late August while trekking around with her boyfriend, Brian Laundrie, sparking a national manhunt and media frenzy. “We would not know that Gabby Petito existed if she was Native American or black and not a pretty white blonde,’’ fumed Twitter user Hart-Van ‘n Leeu. Lynnette Grey Bull, a Native American advocate from Wyoming, told NPR, “It’s kind of heart wrenching, when we look at a white woman who goes missing and is able to get so much immediate attention.”
After a major case it always comes to race. Whites are more reported on than blacks, except when police are involved. Then it never ends. The police become the bad guy with fury.
