Professor Kim's News Notes: Should racially-motivated violent rapes be national news?

Professor Kim's News Notes: Should racially-motivated violent rapes be national news?

This is a troubling blog entry that I just found out about today. It was posted on the news forum at Nappturality.com. Basically, two men brutally stabbed, raped and thought they'd murdered a 15 year old black girl. She laid still; they thought she was dead, so they went to get something to dispose of her body. That is when she was able to run to a house next door and someone there called the authorities.

I truly don't understand minds that work like this. What's worse is I don't understand a media which doesn't aggressively cover this sort of story and runs the same stories over and over all day long.

It's something that I think needs to get more attention. That's the main reason I'm posting it here on my blog, and that's why I put it up on Digg.com.

Being sad or upset is fine, but we have to do more than feel emotions. We need to mobilize to make sure people hear about the story. Head over to Digg.com via the link below and "digg" the story so more folks will read about it.
