the head of the black and missing foundation says the police and media focus on white women in particular has long been a trend in this country. we know of gabby petito we know of natalee holloway, chandra levy lacy peterson, but you can't name one black and brown person that have actually received mainstream media. the term missing white woman syndrome was coined almost 20 years ago. to describe the public fascination with cases involving white women to the exclusion of cases involving missing people of color. people such as arianna fits. she was just two years old when she went missing after her mother was found dead in san francisco in april of 2016. ariana would be eight years old now, but no one knows if she's alive. i can't think of her any other way contest if it's has spent more than five years mourning the loss of her sister , nikki, ariana's mother, and waiting for word on her niece. i
6:41 pm
still think of her as that same energetic, bubbly kid that that curious kid who would grab people's attention because she would smile and wave at people when we were out. you know, out in the street doing stuff performer partner claire bonner considers ariana family she watched the gabby petito coverage with deep sadness on a number of levels. unfortunately it wasn't surprising to me. i think it was the missing white woman syndrome. i think that if ariana's case and nicky's case had received more media attention. we would. we would be further in the case than we are now. the head of the black and missing foundation, who served as a police officer from more than two decades says police are key in how missing persons cases are handled. oftentimes on enforcement label our black and brown young, you know, children asked right aways. runaways do not receive the amber alert. there's no sense of urgency when it comes to looking for those
6:42 pm
children. and when it comes to missing men and women, their disappearances oftentimes associated with some sort of criminal activity. and so it really just sensitize is the fact that they're missing and it's really dehumanizing as well . the black and missing foundation sites numbers that show nearly 40% of missing persons are people of color, even though african americans make up about 13% of the total population. the foundation's mission is to help families of color. get the word out about their missing loved ones. we have families that have had their loved ones to go missing for years, you know, for months , and they can't even simply get a flyer. you know, they can't simply get their loved one on the five or 10 o'clock news station last year alone, we had over 1600 cases coming to office for missing persons. the head of the oakland police department's special victims unit says a missing person's race has no effect on who gets a tweet press release news conference or no
6:43 pm
public notice at all. we can't control what the media covers as far as story wise, other than hey, please release this information about this mr person and have people that have information. contact us. after that, we're not asking for additional coverage unless it helps the case. but you're not putting out a media notice for every single one of those 1600 people whose reported missing a year. no not again only if it is just the case. again. more generally, the video alerts will go out for the people that we believe they are at risk, and it can actually help the case. the media are under scrutiny as well. many questions if newsrooms are giving equal coverage to people who are not reflected in the faces of the editorial staff. the head of the black and missing foundation says inherent biases and implicit racism in policing and news coverage are to blame. we need more diversity in the newsroom. we need law enforcement to take these cases seriously, and we need the community to come forward and say something. if they see something there are a lot of us

the second quarter versus tennessee this past thursday. now, he told coach shanahan about it fairly close to when it happened during the game. shanahan did not mention it to the media at all after the game. but had this to say about things today? i think it affected his throne. just talking to him and n the, um first play the third quarter. um i would say that was one plate affected him on the most. it's a dump sprain. so i think you guys know how those are. i mean, they didn't feel great today, um, wasn't able to throw today and be out as on wednesday, hopefully will get better. all right. that would be a semi miracle can't help but believe there's a great chance that rookie trey lance is going to get his second nfl starts sunday at lever is against the texans. lance also sustained if you remember a bone chip in his throwing hand versus arizona in his first ever started. haven't seen hide nor
6:56 pm
hair of him. basically since then, here's shanahan's assessment of lance development behind the scenes and his thoughts on whether or not he'll play. if your starting quarterback can't throw it as good as he normally does that always factor, you know, i mean, it's i feel like if that was the case at any time this year, um, jimmy, he was struggling to, um , throw it as best. i think we would have gone with this last month of trade has been his best consecutive four weeks of practice, since we've had him as far as this consistency and stuff until this last month, has been as best alright if there is such a thing, i guess the golden state warriors have received some good covid news but hit quite hard, particularly in the last week or so. so as they ready up to play denver tomorrow night in san francisco closer to full strength. andrew wagons is off the covid protocol left and will play tomorrow night against the nuggets. jordan's pool also cleared but needs a little more

7:00 pm
now imagine you have a billion mirrors, and each of them reflects one thing about you correctly and a billion things about you incorrectly. and imagine the set of incorrect things are floating in an abstract n-dimensional hyperspace. now imagine there was never a mirror to begin with. oh, was that a doorbell? i didn't hear anything. (doorbell rings) huh, there it is again. sheldon, why don't you answer it? but i don't know who it is. maybe it's a special guest who i invited just to surprise you. why don't you open it up and find out. this is a terrible message to send to children. children, you never open the door if you don't know who's on the other side. you always make your mommy or daddy do it while you hide under the bed and try to imagine what your superhero name will be when you avenge their deaths. i'll get it. but it can't be the silver shadow-- that's mine.
