I just wanted to point out that the day we find out Mitrice Richardson is dead, Prop. 8 news trumps the news of her death on all of the television newscasts.
The irony? Mitrice was a Black lesbian and apparently gays getting married is more important to news directors than the death and probably murder of a young Black lesbian woman.
ABC 7 must have devoted a full 4 minutes at the top of the 4 p.m. newscast to Proposition 8 and about all of 90 seconds if that on reporting on the death of Mitrice Richardson.
Add to that, I haven’t seen a single statement from a gay organization regarding the death of Mitrice. But to be fair, I haven’t seen one from a Black organization either.
