    What would help support this story are both the empirical evidence and the use of matching examples to support the premise that women and people of colour are described differently. These would make it much harder to dismiss.

    There's no one to blame but the media. They are the ones who cover these missing persons.

    Same reason 2 American soldiers dying get more attention than 33 Afghanis / Iraqis etc dying in the same incident . They are at the top of the food chain , same way as whites are in America .
