Why when pretty girls like Natalee Holloway, Laci Petersen , the Popovich girl from Ohio and Lyndie England vanish, everybody freaks out. But when Twasheeka Jefferson, a 17 year-old mother of three comes up missing, nobody cares??

A lot has to do with the story. Young girl on school trip, pregnant woman on Christmas Eve etc.

She just probably went back to vist the boys' fathers.

Why is it that so many girls are attracted to guys who are pure trouble, then everyone is shocked when something happens to them?

Also has to do with social status of the women and facts surrounding incidents. Let's face it, the media could care less about people that aren't at least better off.

If better off means not having 3 children before the age at which most graduate high school, then yes.

A poor dead black girl doesn't sell newspapers or increase ratings. Its not right or wrong, it's simple capitalism.

*retorical question*
Yes, but how come newspapers won't sell if the story is about a ..tartered up.. black girl, but they will if it is a semi hot white chick...?

I wonder why the media doesn't feel compelled to produce for that market.

For the same reason that nobody gives a shit about 250,000 Rwandans getting hacked up by cannibals.

Something tells me that any girl who is 17 years old and has three children (out of wedlock, no less) is participating in a lifestyle that isn't conducive to a long life.

ETA: It's the same as the guy who routinely hits himself in the head with a claw hammer. I sure as heck am not going to shed a tear because he winds up with brain damage. Or the motorcycle riders who take insane chances all the time with their bikes...all the while wearing nothing for protection but a pair of Oakley sunglasses.
