While listening to a couple radio personalities discuss the disappearance of Jahmeshia Conner in Chicago in November 2009, there was discussion that white female teens are reported as missing or abducted while black female teens are generally reported as runaways by news media.
I did find one CBS news story that stated Jahmeshia was reported as a runaway.
Is this discrepancy faulty reporting by the police, media stations, or both?
What do you think?
