MSBNC's Joy Reid suggests people only care about the Gabby Petito case because of "Missing White Woman Syndrome," ignoring the 700+ indigenous people who have gone missing in that same area over the last decade
re: anyone getting bigmad about someone using the expression "Missing White Woman Syndrome," what if I told you that 5,590 Native American women went missing in 2019, and weren't the subject of daily Twitter updates
Wrote about so-called "missing white woman syndrome" back in 2014. Back then, upwards of 40% of missing folks were people of color and yet the media only covered white women like Gabby Petito who disappear. It's worth asking why.
