Is Newtown Making Such News Because The Kids Are Mostly White? [View all]

On Wednesday night, my brother and I were talking on the phone. I am not sure which one of us said it first, but we both agreed that the news coverage for the Newtown massacre was only as intense as it was because most of the children murdered were white.

On Thursday, I heard Norm Goldman discussing this very issue, and it sent my mind racing.

In 1989, an armed man murdered 5 children and wounded 29 others at the Cleveland Elementary School in Stockton, California. The murderer was white, I won't name him and give him any glory, but there are dozens of pictures of him online.

The 5 murdered children, 1 little boy and 4 little girls, ranged in age from 6 to 9 years, and they were Cambodian and Vietnamese immigrants. I am a pretty skilled Internet sleuther, but it took me a while to find pictures of them in this YouTube video and still picture. Until today, I cannot EVER remember seeing the faces of these 5 murdered beautiful children shown anywhere.
