missing white women

The search for Brian Laundrie -- whose fiancée, Gabrielle Petito, went missing under the most suspicious and tragic of circumstances -- embodies white privilege in every way, fashion and form.

Hopefully, Gabrielle Petito is found alive and well. Unfortunately, there are non-white Gabrielle Petitos across the nation who deserve the same mainstream media attention and sense of urgency but will never receive it.

Black lives have had a centuries-long history of not mattering as much as their White counterparts.
