Following the national media coverage of Gabby Petito, MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid called out the national media Monday for “ignoring cases involving missing people of color.”

“If you’ve been watching the news for the past few days, or on Twitter or TikTok, you’re probably familiar with the name Gabby Petito, the 22-year-old aspiring social media influencer who was reported missing after her fiancée returned from their van life excursion without her,” Reid said. “Now, it goes without saying that no family should ever have to endure that kind of pain, and the Petito family certainly deserves answers and justice. But the way this story has captivated the nation has many wondering, why not the same media attention when people of color go missing?”

Reid didn’t stop there, echoing a phrase created by fellow Black broadcast journalist Gwen Ifill. “Well, the answer actually has a name: missing white woman syndrome,” Reid said. “The term coined by the late and great Gwen Ifill to describe the media and public fascination with missing white women like Laci Peterson or Natalee Holloway while ignoring cases involving missing people of color.”

Now, she’s retweeting cases of missing Black persons, like that of Daniel Robinson. He is a geologist who went missing just outside Buckeye, Arizona. No one has heard from him for three months. Then, Arizona Police found human remains near Robinson’s abandoned car, but confirmed that they were not his.

Oregon’s Menstrual Dignity Act has layers of perversion. In July of last year, democratic Governor Kate Brown signed the “Menstrual Dignity Act” which requires schools k-12 to carry and provide free sanitary products to students with instructions on how they are supposed to be used. The installs have begun, according to a video posted be @libsoftiktok.

The Portland school district stated, “starting next year (2022-2022), products will be available in all restrooms (male, female and all-gender) in every PPS building where education occurs.”

Fox News reports that “Menstrual Dignity for Students” tool kits containing instructions and tips for “menstruation-positive” language for families.

Part of the kit reads: “Importantly, [the Menstrual Dignity Act] affirms the right to menstrual dignity for transgender, intersex, nonbinary, and two spirit students by addressing the challenges that some students have managing menstruation while minimizing negative attention that could put them at risk of harm and navigating experiences of gender dysphoria during menstruation.”
