Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) spoke out about the relative lack of news coverage devoted to WNBA star Brittney Griner’s ongoing detention in Russia. Griner has been held in Russia for at least three weeks on drug charges. She was reportedly arrested at a Russian airport in mid-February after cannabis oil products were detected in her luggage.

According to the NY Times, Russian authorities are exploring criminal charges against Griner that, if convicted, could carry a 10-year prison sentence. Griner’s arrest coincided with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and the ensuing U.S. decision to lobby harsh diplomatic & economic sanctions against Russia, further complicating efforts to bring her home safely and promptly. On March 17, Griner's 'period of detention' was extended until May 19 by a Moscow court

It's OK to be a "white" terrorist on rightist media.

It’s Been 20 Years: Alexis Patterson, a Black girl, is still Missing but the World Found Elizabeth Smart

Alexis Patterson went missing May 3, 2002 after she was dropped off at school. A month after she disappeared, a young white girl named Elizabeth Smart went missing after being abducted from her home. Smart was found nine months after her abduction but Patterson’s mother is still looking for Alexis 20 years later. Unfortunately, race may be the reason why.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Smart’s disappearance gained much more attention than Patterson’s. From the “Larry King Live Show” to “America’s Most Wanted,” her story became a national topic while Patterson’s drowned in the noise.

Before we continue:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_King

Quote
King was born in Brooklyn on November 19, 1933.[10] He was one of two children of Jennie (née Gitlitz; 1905–1990), a garment worker who was born in Minsk, Russian Empire, and Aaron Zeiger (1898–1942), a restaurant owner and defense-plant worker who was born in Pinsk, Russian Empire.[11][12][13] His parents were Orthodox Jews who immigrated to the United States from Belarus in the 1930s.[1][14][15]
...
In 2017, he stated "I love being Jewish, am proud of my Jewishness, and I love Israel".[120]

Back to first link:

Quote
The police also called in the FBI the day after Smart vanished and offered a reward $200,000 more than Patterson’s. The FBI didn’t get to Patterson’s case until three days after she went missing.

Continuing:

Quote
In 2020, nearly 100,000 Black women and girls went missing and their names rarely go viral. It’s due to the simple fact that they will never get the same attention a white girl does.

More from Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

    Twenty years ago, as police searched for the two girls, some advocates and experts argued that race was a key factor in how authorities and reporters handled their cases. It marked the first time the national media paid serious attention to such disparities.

    Two years later, Black journalist Gwen Ifill gave the phenomenon a name: “missing white woman syndrome.” She coined the term after the disappearance of Laci Peterson, a pregnant California woman whose husband was later convicted of killing her. It played out again in 2005, when Natalee Holloway vanished on a class trip to Aruba.


The disappearance of Gabby Petito also brought the issue of “missing white woman syndrome” to public attention. Researchers found missing Black people get less media attention but many complex factors play a role in it, per Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Racial diversity in newsrooms, socioeconomic status of Black victims, the neighborhoods missing Black children are from and the way police categorize disappearances contribute to the disparity.

FACEBOOK TELLS MODERATORS TO ALLOW GRAPHIC IMAGES OF RUSSIAN AIRSTRIKES BUT CENSORS ISRAELI ATTACKS

Internal memos show Meta deemed attacks on Ukrainian civilians “newsworthy” — prompting claims of a double standard among Palestine advocates.
...
It’s become a pattern: Palestinians post sometimes graphic videos and images of Israeli attacks, and Meta swiftly removes the content, providing only an oblique reference to a violation of the company’s “Community Standards” or in many cases no explanation at all.

Not all the billions of users on Meta’s platforms, however, run into these issues when documenting the bombing of their neighborhoods.

Previously unreported policy language obtained by The Intercept shows that this year the company repeatedly instructed moderators to deviate from standard procedure and treat various graphic imagery from the Russia-Ukraine war with a light touch. Like other American internet companies, Meta responded to the invasion by rapidly enacting a litany of new policy carveouts designed to broaden and protect the online speech of Ukrainians, specifically allowing their graphic images of civilians killed by the Russian military to remain up on Instagram and Facebook.

No such carveouts were ever made for Palestinian victims of Israeli state violence — nor do the materials show such latitude provided for any other suffering population.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/facebook-continues-to-auto-generate-pages-for-the-proud-boys-other-extremist-groups-194527393.html

Quote
Four years after Facebook first banned the Proud Boys, the social network is still creating new content on behalf of the far-right extremist group, as well as dozens of other white supremacists, militias and known terrorist organizations, in apparent violation of its own stated policies.

According to recent findings by the Tech Transparency Project (TTP), an industry watchdog, Facebook not only regularly allows users to display in their profiles names of extremist groups, including some that have been explicitly banned from the site, but then autogenerates pages for those groups, increasing their visibility and giving their supporters a place to connect.
...
“Are Facebook's detection systems really as good as they claim, if their own systems where these explicit terms and groups are banned are actually creating pages for them?” asked TTP’s director, Katie Paul. “How can we trust what they say about safety and security when Facebook doesn't just fail to remove, but actually creates extremist content?”

Over the years, Facebook has faced scrutiny over the way its platform has been used by terrorists, hate groups and other violent actors to organize and promote harmful content. In response, it has announced a number of efforts to crack down on an ever-expanding list of dangerous individuals and organizations, using a combination of advanced artificial intelligence and human moderators.

But extremism experts and whistleblowers have criticized these measures as ineffective, noting that blacklisted groups regularly fall through the cracks, often remaining active on the platform well after they’ve been banned.
...
Since then, TTP has produced multiple reports on the autogenerated extremist pages, which Facebook has continued to produce despite increased scrutiny over the platform’s role in facilitating the spread of COVID-19 misinformation and election conspiracy theories, and permitting organizing by groups that stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6.

Among others, TTP has found that Facebook continues to autogenerate pages for a number of far-right paramilitary groups whose members have been charged in connection with the insurrection, including the Oath Keepers and the Three Percenters. The FBI has accused members of the Oath Keepers — including one of the group’s leaders currently on trial for seditious conspiracy — of using Facebook Messenger to track down members of Congress while the Capitol was under siege.
...
The same study also found that Facebook’s algorithm often recommended other extremist content to users who visited the white supremacist pages, and that searches for these groups were often monetized.
...
“This is the platform itself creating, essentially, meeting spots, like locus points for terrorist supporters to gather… [and] enabling terrorists to spread content and narratives farther,” Ayad said. “In terms of being able to confront the issue of online terrorist [activity], that’s a big problem.”

Facebook executives — including CEO Mark Zuckerberg — have repeatedly dodged questions from lawmakers about the company's practice of autogenerating pages for groups involved in real-world violence.
...
“Despite Facebook's misleading rhetoric about social responsibility and community building, they are at its core a capitalist endeavor that has no moral values and will do anything to make money, including fostering hate and facilitating crime,” said Nelson. “And as long as they can get away with it and make the money that they're aiming to make, they're going to continue to do it.”
