No that was an explanation for why the two stories mentioned got different coverage. People identify with what they consider to be similiar to them. ie. If someone gets shot in your neighbourhood it would interest you more than if someone got shot on the other side of the country in some other neighbourhood.

Reading these posts reminded me of watching the news coverage about James Byrd being dragged to death behind a truck in Jasper TX...I was sitting in a bar with a friend and expressed my shock, anger and ignorance that something like that could still happen and my friend looked at me and said "that kind of shit happens everyday, this time it just happened to make the news."
your right...prejudice, racism...it all sucks.
