Casey Anthony and Tracy Ocasio

I can't help but wonder if the media would be this obsessed with the Casey Anthony and Tracy Ocasio cases if both girls were black. Does that sound racist? Of course it does. However, having been involved in the criminal justice system for almost a decade, it seems the media only pays attention to cases involving pretty white girls.

Tragically, lots of kids die every year, whether by drowning, disease, or at the hands of their own parents. What makes Casey Anthony's case any different?

Likewise, thousands of people go missing every year. What makes Tracy Ocasio's disappearance any more upsetting than if a poor black or Hispanic person were to disappear?
