MINORITIES IN THE MEDIA/MONICA GUERRA

FOR THE PAST FEW YEARS, I’VE NOTICED THAT THE COVERAGE OF PEOPLE IN THE MEDIA ARE A MAJORITY OF CAUCASSIANS FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN SOMEONE IS MISSING, KIDNAPPED, OR MURDERED, THEY SEEM TO BE ALL CAUSASIANS. ALTHOUGH THE SMALL, 30 SECOND, QUICK NEWS PIECES COVER OTHER ETHNICITIES, MINORITIES ARE BARELY EVER INCLUDED IN THE WEEK AND MONTH LONG COVERAGES. TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE SEEN A LATINO, AFRICAN AMERICAN OR ASIAN HAVE A WEEK OR MONTH LONG EXCLUSIVE ON TELEVISION. BUT WE HAVE PEOPLE LIKE TERRI SHAIVO AND STACY PETERSON BEING TALKED AND DICUSSED ABOUT FOR WEEKS AND SOMETIMES MONTHS, WHILE MINORITES ONLY GET AIR TIME WHEN THEY ARE ACCUSED OF STEALING OR KIDNAPPING. ALTHOUGH MY PARENTS WATCH THE MISSING PEOPLE EXCLUSIVES, I DON’TWATCH THEM ANYMORE BECAUSE THEY DO NOT TRY TO COVER EVERYONE, THAT’S NOT FAIR, AND I WILL NOT SUPPORT BY WATCHING.

UNFORTUNATELY THAT’S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE LEFT FOR OUR SHOW. I’D LIKE TO THANK NICOLAS GABE-MOORE, JOSHLYN PATRICK, AND NEHEMIAH HOBBS. I’M YOUR HOST MONICA GUERRA. YOU CAN HEAR THIS DISCUSSION AND MORE ON THE WEB AT WWW.YOUTHRADIO.ORG
