Black Lives Have Less Value

Anthony Thomas and Kyron Horman: Two Missing Boys Demonstrate Disparity in Coverage

It’s sad and unfortunate that two boys suddenly vanish without a trace.  We ask ourselves a great many questions like who would do such a thing and why.  Then there is the question why are greater resources brought to bear in the search for one over the other.  Unfortunately, these are editorial decisions that reflect editorial values over community values.   The unmistakable conclusion, Kyron Horman is white and has garnered national media attention while Anthony Thomas is black and has received neither local nor national media attention and that black life has less value.
