    I have seen a number of observations to the effect that if the missing or dead kid is a pretty white girl, Nancy Grace is all over it.  

    If it is a teenager of either gender who happens to be of African or Hispanic descent.......crickets.  

    MO, I have no answers to the question.  Just more questions.  Damn.

      on Law & Order hosts a new show called "Find Our Missing"
      on TV One specifically focuses on missing African Americans and Hispanics to specifically counteract the so called Nancy Grace syndrome. It fills a badly needed gap in focusing a spotlight on these cases.  

      (I say so called because Nancy Grace has extensively covered many cases of missing and/or murdered people of all races, she is most definitely an advocate for victim's and their families and knows what they are going through having lost her fiance' to murder and then going to law school and becoming a prosecutor. She gets a bad rap that she doesn't deserve, I don't always agree with her techniques, but I greatly respect and admire her and quite frankly, it is because of some of her techniques that these cases get so much media coverage, so in all likelihood, that's the method to her madness. She cares very much about these victims and getting justice for them and the missing person cases that don't get solved haunt her and she doesn't forget about them, she regularly airs updates on them.)
