SHOCKING KANSAS CITY DISPARITY!!! PROSECUTORS WILL NOT CHARGE SUBURBAN PARENTS WHO LEFT BABY TO DIE IN HOT SUV!!!
Here's a clear cut case of white privilege for the afternoon:
No charges will be filed in the case of a 13-month-old boy who died after being left inside a hot car in May, police said Wednesday.
No charges in baby's death left inside SUV
No charges in Lee's Summit baby's death
Even worse . . . Kansas City media is complicit in this bit of white privilege in action given that they're not releasing the name of the parents involved.
Perspective . . . Remember not so long ago Kansas City media put the names of an African-American family on blast after an accidental bath tub death where a baby was accused of murder.
I was thinking about going public with the names but honestly I want this blog to be cheeky and fun and this story just reminds me that justice and "journalism" have different standards for people of color and middle-class suburbanites earn so much privilege that dead kids don't matter . . .
Feel free to argue in favor of baby killing via neglect but clearly TKC can't support such a practice even in jest.
