MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid attacked the coverage of the Gabby Petito case, allegedly that the only reason why Petito’s case is receiving so much press coverage is because of what Reid called: ‘missing white woman syndrome.’

As Fox News reports:

MSNBC host Joy Reid turned to race Monday while discussing the media’s coverage of missing 22-year-old Gabby Petito, dismissing the focus on the case as “missing White woman syndrome.”

During a segment on her show “The ReidOut,” Reid said while Petito’s family deserved “answers and justice,” she felt the same media attention didn’t apply to non-White people when they go missing.

“It goes without saying that no family should ever have to endure that kind of pain. And the Petito family certainly deserves answers and justice,” Reid said. “But the way this story has captivated the nation has many wondering, why not the same media attention when people of color go missing?”

“Well, the answer actually has a name: Missing White woman syndrome. The term coined by the late and great Gwen Iffil to describe the media and public fascination with missing White women like Laci Peterson or Natalee Holloway, while ignoring cases involving missing people of color,” she added, referencing two well-known cases of missing women.

Is Reid correct that the Petito case has been over covered by the mainstream press, or is her objection to it merely an expression of her own racism? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Joy Ann Reid needs to get a life and get over her hatred for white people. It will only make her look petty and unliked.

All of them on the left are this racist, hateful, and dumb, but don’t forget all the good, hard-working, law-abiding, tax-paying black people, like the wonderful and brilliant Thomas Sowell, Larry Elder, Shelby Steel, etc etc, who are not represented by low IQ racists like Maxine Waters, Reid, or racist hate groups like ‘black lies matter’.

Make everything about race – that’ll help your cause. Or haven’t you yet realized that approach has been so overused that the public – all of the public regardless of race or political affiliation – is becoming immune? But of course you know that the media isn’t reporting on black crime because they don’t want anyone to know the Leftists aren’t doing anything to assist communities to lessen it. You have the ability to change that, so stop being an indoctrinated servant to the Left and bring cases to the fore.

Right, she might shut up if one of her TV guests suggested publicly that she go find a black pregnant woman who went missing when her husband returned from a fishing trip in San Francisco Bay, or a black woman who quarreled with her boyfriend and then he drove her van from the Grand Tetons back to Florida without bothering to take her with him.

Go find ’em, Joy! Be a reporter instead of an conjecturer! Do something constructive instead of poofing up the airwaves with your endless whining about black victimization!

They had a story about a missing black mother in People Magazine last week. Guess that she missed that issue.

The media isn’t reporting on black crime because it would dominate the news leaving little if any time that fits their narrative of bashing white folks or conservatives
