    but it’s not about race right?

    Woah

    This is the master post of the new millennium showcasing racism and white supremacy at its finest.


    Please stop telling us it’s not about race and to move on cause IT IS and WE WONT until justice is served and equality is established!

    Well this will make it hard to sleep tonight.

    There was a lot of talk today about the media’s failed coverage [read: non-coverage] of the 234 Nigerian girls, thus came the #234WhiteGirls hashtag.

    No, none of us wants any white girls to go missing. We just want these Nigerian girls to get the same amount of coverage that white girls get (or would get), because EVERY girl matters.

    I really don’t have the patience anymore for PR people who email me on a daily basis to find out when the stories mentioning their clients will be published.

    Here’s what I wish I could say to them:

    1. You don’t write my paycheck and you are not entitled to any story at all, so sit tight and be grateful I interviewed your client.
    2. Shockingly enough, I do work on more than one story at a time. Some are more timely than others. If yours hasn’t run yet, it’s not timely.
    3. The caliber of reporting we do here takes a lot of time; we don’t just rewrite news releases or take anybody’s word for anything.
    4. The longer it takes, the better the story will be, and the more likely it is to get better placement in the print edition.
    5. I’m just as eager to get this story off my plate as you are to read it.
    6. I get a dozen emails like this every day, and the more of them I receive, the longer it takes for me to finish the stories about your clients.
    7. I am not giving you tentative dates anymore, because I will get another email from you when the story doesn’t run on the tentative date because it got bumped by breaking news or more pressing projects.
    8. Let me show you how to set up Google Alerts.

    Holiday retail coverage plan in the works. People have no idea how much work goes into this time of year. We have been planning for months already.

    Just realized yesterday would have marked my grandparents’ 46th wedding anniversary. I really need to call Granddaddy.
