Alisa Valdes Rodriguez Article

This article is written by Alisa Valdes Rodriguez concerning the media sanctification of privileged white men who kill. The media tends to cover up crimes committed by those guys. This is a mirror image of the missing pretty white women syndrome concocted by the same media. I also want to thank macon d. for bringing this article to the attention of the people that has been covered up or denied for a very long time. d. from Stuff White People Do Blog has the following commentary:

For another discussion of the common white tendency to overlook that which is dangerous because it seems so normal, see Tim Wise's "School Shootings and White Denial."
