White face in the media

Not much blogging today, but I do have one thing that is striking me. Pictures of Natalee Holloway, the young girl who dissapeared in Aruba, are all over the web right now. AOL has an eight picture photo essay up that begins with a portrait shot of this beautiful, blonde haired, blue eyed girl smiling at us. It all leads me to wonder: if she were a black girl from Brooklyn would her picture be plastered everywhere? Would we even know about her case? Would the media care near as much as they apparently do? Think about it.
