      why don’t they put upa reward? with the class of of people (money talks) some local will probably talk.

    • Richard says:

      There is a reward up, has been for at least two weeks.

    • pink says:

      I agree… if she wasn’t your all american caucasian girl, this story would not even see the light of day.

    • Richard says:

      Unfortunately, this kind of thing happens more often than we hear about it.

      All you Black Folks need to get a life. By the way, check out the news for the murder of black boys murdered on St. Thomas Virgin Island.

      I certainly wouldn’t care as much. And I think the black person who posted this response gives all us white people more reason to not care. Thanks for responding with such a typical black comment.

      Warning to American mothers: Tell you daughters to keep their legs close when they come to the Caribbean… I’m from the Bahamas and too often we see young usually white American girls turn in twobit whores when they come on vacation here. They seem to spread their legs for anyone. In addition they seem to have no standard, They pick the dirtiest (we call them “jonsers” down here) to hang out with. Keep ya P…Y in ya panties and you will be just fine

    • ccr chick says:

      Gee, do all the young women in the Bahamas keep their legs closed, and if they don’t, they are never heard from again? I beg to differ.

    • Richard says:

      This is basically the same response that I gave to another comment on another post.
      The whole point of my asking what it be like if she were poor and black was not a racial issue. I might have well asked what would be going on if she were poor white fucking trailer trash, or what if she were a poor hispanic. The problem is that this kind of stuff IS going on more often than is being reported. That doesn’t mean that authorities don’t work just as hard as they are on this case. Most of times, they do. However, the media is fixated on this because she IS white, blonde, and pretty, and her family is at least upper middle class WASPs.

    • ccrchick says:

      The media is fixed on this case because she is a fellow American who has disappearred off the face of the earth, and the way the investigation is being handled.
      And you you are making a racial issue of it.

    • Upper middle class says:

      Why are you jealous of pretty white girls, get over it. If she were black and poor she wouldn’t have been on the trip. If she were a pretty black girl it would be the same story, so your real problem is with pretty, not black or white. Duh!

    • Tjf says:

      I try everyday to not hate anyone but when people play the race card for every stupid situation it’s hard not to be. I was in Aruba when it happened and they cared because it was a missing human, color was no issue. For anyone, white or black, that throws the race thing around, why not take a look at you and your peers and see why people might judge you a certain way. I find there is usually a reason and a somewhat valid one. Where I’m from all (and I do mean ALL) of the black neighborhoods are rough. Why is that? If I was black I’ld stop making excuses and try to fix my neighborhood. Oh, and I taught and lived in a black neighborhood and dated a black man for 3 years so I do have some idea.

    • blf says:

      its funny that people fail to realize that welfare checks are issued to more caucasian’s than any other race so please get over yourselfs. oh and Tjf just because you lived in a black neighborhood and dated someone black does not make u have any idea and mr rich white man what exactly is a typical black comment because u seem to have ignorance covered! I have traveled to the caribean many times and it is the same then men continue to prey on women until they get someone to fall for it so that is the reason it seems to always be white women that we see missing

    • gail says:

      why take our attention from this case to argue with each other …it does not matter if she is white black green or purple she is a child of GOD and she is lost …….we need to pray for her and her family and stop all the fighting…

    • i-rush says:

      You are an idiot. People are not going to let this go just because she isn’t black and poor. Everyone knows that dutch kid did this and he isn’t going to get away with it.

    • another superior white person says:

      You’re correct white people are more important than black people. Her life is far more valuable than an ethnic persons and justice will be served. Your remark only proves that you people don’t deserve the same attention that is being given to her. By the way I never got my fathers day card for my tax money taking care of your children..I want it.

    • Tjf says:

      BLF-Do you know what MINORITY means? By percentages more blacks get welfare. Plus, where I come from, they get over 75% of the welfare. OF course, you don’t sound intelligent enough to figure all of these numbers out, but don’t worry, tutors are available everywhere.
      As for Natalie, God, please keep her safe if she is alive and if she isn’t, please help them find her remains so that her family can begin to heal and go on with their lives.

      This is like an online Jerry Springer show. Compassion is an amazing thing.

    • Chad B. says:

      This has to be by far the most ignorant lot of people i have witnessed since i’ve been in the south.
      First off -> it should not matter whether the girl is black, white, latino, asian or of any other ethnicity. As americans, the important part that as an american we all hope she is safe.
      Secondly -> for this country to have the reputation of being the land of the free, we are one of the most racist countries in the world. Nobody on this earth is ANY better or futher more superior than ANYBODY else, not white, black, latinos, asians NO ONE! There is no wonder why other countries hate us. We hate ourselves! If you hate other people in this country because they are a diffrent color than you, then you are sad and need help.w/e

      Why don’t you black trash go back to Africa where you can starve to death!

    • John says:

      Hey Genius!
      You’re absolutely right. It’s all about what sells. DO you really think the news is about NEWS! It’s all cherry picked information by the liberal media to appeal to the majority of people in the US. Do you really think America cares about some poor crack ho or anyone that isn’t attractive. Everyone subconsciouly tunes into the story because they see the pretty girl on TV. All things being equal, we’ll always go for looks. Hello, wake up! You’re not in Kansas anymore!

    • people need to grow up says:

      Listen to yourselves…ccrchick…a girl is missing..more than likely dead, and you have the nerve to say things about white american girls turning into two bit whores in the Carribean? You are a poor excuse for a human being…who says that? who would even think that kind of a thing about an innocent girl that is missing?
      And to the people that are turning this into a racial debate…have some compassion…who cares what race she is..It would be looked at the same way no matter what color skin she has. Don’t you people have anything better to do than to argue over if white people or black people are better or who gets the most welfare checks?!?!?!? A girl is missing and her family is just as upset as any other family would be…black, white, english, spanish…who cares. They are all people. It’s because of people like you guys that the world is so fucked up. When you look at someone…why do you even have to notice what color thier skin is? what changes who a person is on the inside? Get some class, take your arguments elsewhere and keep this as a place where people can write comments about the situation in Aruba…think about Natalie and her family not yourselves…seriously…

    • yea i agree, people need to grow up says:

      I agree- If it was your girl missing, you’d feel the same way. I understand that partial media coverage exist, but until she is found, there should be no mention of this crap above.

    • david lynch says:

      Interesting. That reminds me of an incident during my senior year of high school back in 1986. A friend of mine (white attractive cheerleader) was shot to death by a fellow classmate who had an obsession with her. The day after the incident we were at school and the halls were completely silent except for the sound of lockers closing and feet shuffling. Suddenly, a voice whispered from a black classmate, “if this were black you wouldn’t have all this silence and sadness”. Well, I’ll tell you this, if one of my fellow football players had been shot, I’d be feeling it. If a good friend of mine who was a black cheerleader had been shot, I’d been feeling it. Yes, while it’s true that there is inequity in the media with covering incidents of white and blacks, it still is a sad day when a girl’s life is treated so poorly by a government and a few of its peeps. I would hope that a black mother would be banging the drums of support for her daughter as well if in this situation.
      A very ignorant and heartless statement by either an elitist liberal (shave your pits) or an angry black.

      why dont you shut the fuck up you are a stupid fucking idiot. Cry me a river wahhhhh!!!! The reason is the media makes such a big deal out of is so that you BLACK people will have something to whine about, inststaed of the regular whinnning everyone hears form your lazy fucking asses.

      Wake up then dude. I’m sure that some sort of racism exists where your naive clueless ass resides. Could be anti-semitism also…I’m sure it exists sadly. America is the most diverse nation on the planet…we don’t have the monopoly on racism.

    • Richard says:

      It’s pretty interesting to see how many people are getting SO ANGRY about the statements. Usually when people get that angry about stuff, it is because it is true, particularly in their case.

    • Richard says:

      OR that they are secretly scared of something.

    • Kathleen says:

      My my. I can’t believe how stupid (IGNORANT) some people can be. The reason why there is so much attention to Natalie, is because she has done something right with her life obviously. It is the LOVE that people have for her. Her family and friends. It is the family that keeps the media involved. The comment about white women spreading thier legs was completely uncalled for. I feel sorry for you people that have no lives other then to sit on a website and trash people that are in harms way or dead. Get some education. Are you jealous that a little white girl has touched so many lives? I truly hope something like this doesn’t happen to your daughter, sister, niece. Wake up and be productive. Black, white, green, purple.. We are all the same. You obviuosly were too busy to watch what the world tried to do this past weekend. At least 26 million came together for a cause?? HELLO?? Wake up and smell the coffee . Bravo John for your comments. Richard.. You need some education. I feel sorry for your family. And ccrchick. You don’t have a clue as to what you are talking about.

      oompah,
      Apparently you haven’t been to many other countries, or for that matter, watch or read the news. The US is perhaps the most non-racist nation. We do not deny citizenship or blow up others due to race or relegion as in other countries. At least we talk about it. The only racial issue I see in this country is reverse racism via the race card. Stop blaming others for your problems and get a job. Work like everyone else does!

    • Mark says:

      Who ever posted this stupid comment is a very dumb person. Black or white, HUMAN RACE, if lost is something to morn over. Have you ever heard of the “Precious Dough”, she was a beautiful little black, and no one rested until we knew her real name. The reason why we dont here about ALL the BLACK deaths in the world is because most of them are killing each other, and they are gang bangers and we really dont care if they die or not. If sad but TRUE. So go on and start complaining to someone that would let you cry on there shoulder, cause your not hurting anyone feelings here. Good day, Sir (and yes I mean Sir)

    • toosxzi says:

      i don’t really care if she’s poor or rich or black or white or anything else… all that really matter’s is that she’s hot – and because she’s hot – we need to look for her >;->

    • DANA says:

      If you think for 1 minute that the news media is fair and unbiased you are dead wrong!The fact that she is NOT black and poor does not sell newspapers and attract viewers!The fact that she is white and pretty unfortunately brings in alot of money for the media. And to all you people who are so stupid that you have to print the F-word,I have no respect for anything you have to say.

      sounds to me like you have a severe chip on your shoulder. perhaps you should get a job AND a life before you go mouthing off about people not caring about her if she were poor AND black. unlike you, people actually DO care about a young person whatever color or financial background they come from. it’s a shame you have to pull the old race card simply because she’s a beautiful white girl, bright, and probably is/was financially comfortable. get over yourself.
      perhaps a little counseling will help you get over your stereotype/race issues. good luck.

    • Frank says:

      While the racism and name calling is really entertaining, I think the point is that the media is disproportionately more likely to cover these disappearances en masse when there is a young white woman/girl involved. Laci Peterson, Chandra Levy, Natalie Holloway, Elizabeth Smart – those names are just off the top of my head, and I remembered them because of the pervasive media coverage. I can’t think of a single woman of color, or middle age, or of a lower socio-economic class whose disappearance was widely covered.
      I think there’s a very good reason for this, and it isn’t about race. It’s about ratings. It’s a better story when someone middle or upper-middle class goes missing because if even the middle class can’t feel safe, what hope is there for the lower class? It’s more provocative, and therefore better for ratings. A young black woman goes missing, it’s tragic and everyone’s hearts go out to her, but unless she is attractive and upper middle class, it isn’t entertainment.

    • sealee says:

      Actually they have been looking for a black woman who disappeared in Alabama and they have been making a big to do of it on court tv.

Who cares why they put it in the media, (which credit should be given to her mother…who in desperate please to find her DAUGHTER…sparked all of this media attention )….people do not care about what happened to her because shes pretty or rich….they care because shes a 17 year old girl…just starting life…and in the midst of celebrating high school graduation…her life is snuffed out. Its sad and unfortunate, sure some cases get more attention but it has a lot to do with how much noise the family makes to get their story out there. Some of the people on this forum are so full of hatred or anger or something that they can lash out at complete strangers over such as stupid argument. What they need to be doing is praying that something like this never happens to them, their daughters, sisters, mothers, or children.

      Of course nobody knows (or if they do they won’t admit it), because then that would support my initial statement.

    • Chas says:

      Why does one missing child rate being on TV everyday, and yet another missing child is not newsworthy according to our Liberal News Media?
      It doesn’t appear to be racial. It’s not class. (Some of the chosen missing kids were from poor druggie families.)
      Why do some missing kids get blessed by our News Media? Others are tossed aside?

    • Richard says:

      Chas, I have been looking at that myself recently. Most of the reports (up until the last few months, have followed the rule that I posted about (the topic of conversation). That seems to be changing however. The most recent Amber Alert that I posted anything about was of two missing children whose parents are from Mexico. It would be nice to see the reports head in that direction (coverage of ALL of them).

    • FuckNatalie says:

      I hate Natalie Holloway! I’m glad this dumb whore is dead. FUCK her and her parents!

    • jim says:

      First let me say I am not black. Now to my point. All of the talking heads on the tv news shows keep saying how beautiful and intelligent that Natalie is and they keep emphasizing that she is an “A” student. Her mother on one show referred to her daughter as “My beautiful, intelligent and smart daughter”. Anyone with an open mind can see, that if this were a short, fat dumpy girl of any ethnicity who was just a “c” student, and not as intelligent as Natalie supposedly is, she would not be getting all of this coverage. I also think that the family is financially well off and politically connected which also accounts for all of the media atention.

    • diane says:

      f***natalie:
      you are one sick twisted puppy. i guess you are jealous she was rich, beautiful AND intelligent.
      shame on you.

    • jim says:

      First of all you should learn to read better, I did not use the term f***natalie nor would I, that was someone who posted before me.
      And no I am not jealous of her beauty or her supposed intelligence. I still stand by my statements, and I may stand alone but I believe that these boys are innocent and that the Aruban officials are just bending to the pressure being put on them by her family and our government. Look how many people were convicted falsely in our own country because of a rush to judgement. But yet I keep seeing the family and the talking heads on the tv news shows making reference to these boys as murderers and kidnappers, and they want them convicted and sentenced without a shred of evidence that any crime was commited.
      These are the sick and twisted puppies.
      I am also sick and tired of the mother and stepfather saying that they have evidence proving the guilt of these three boys, but when challenged on it they keep saying that they cannot divulge it, divulging this information would help to solve this mystery. If they truly have this proof (which I doubt) then they should share it first with the Aruban authorities, the FBI and with FOX and MSNBC. My opinion is that the reason they don’t share this evidence is that it doesn’t exist.

    • Chas says:

      Good point: a good looking person or good looking child has a big advantage over an ugly person or a ugly child. This is true whether they are dead or alive.
      Sure. It’s not fair. It’s not right. But that’s life.
      Our Liberal News Media spends a good percentage of it’s time trying to get Democrats elected to office. Because “they care.”
      However,it could devote some of it’s political campaign time to report all missing children; no matter what color and no matter what social status.
      Well, “they care”. But they “don’t care that much”.

    • dragonfly says:

      First of all I can’t believe any of you could say anything along the lines of fuck natalie….she did not choose to be white, rich, or beautiful…she was born that way just like we were born the way we are. I don’t think the topic of racism should even be brought up in a situation like this. The people who did are just looking for things to complain about. People say whites are the racist ones, but you don’t see us arguing when y’all have your black beauty pagents or “black day”. If we had a white only pageant you would automatically accuse us of being racist. Enough on that stupid subject. I hope all of you out there are praying for natalie and her family. I know you would want other people praying for you and your family if this happened to you.

    • jim says:

      Dragonfly, I agree with you that race should not be an issue in this case, but neither should beauty, intelligence, social status, etc. be brought up. This case is about a missing child period, be she white, black, rich, poor, smart, not so smart, etc.. Hannity on Fox disgustingly keeps reminding everyone that she is beautiful intelligent, and an A student, I guess he would be saying that she was fat, ugly and dumb if that were the case.

    • Rob says:

      Why does everything come down to race ? Yeah its true if she was blk, it wouldnt matter as much to the media. Then again buppies raise their children differently than yuppies. The comments about welfare only hold true in percentage arguments and is just a way of manipulating the truth to hurt someone else. I guess Ill just continue using aerosoles and cfc’s in an attempt to widen the ozone hole. Causcasians will get skin cancer much sooner than the people of color and we will benefit from all of the leftover technology and welfare monies.

      What’s the matter didn’t your welfare check arrive on time? You all make me sick. There are not any welfare checks in Africa, not like here. If you don’t like it here, take your welfare check and buy you a one-way-ticket to Africa. Also, we do not owe you idiot anything. You got a good country here. We never sold you and we certainlhy didn’t buy you. We would however pay to send your butts packing.

      You can’t benefit from welfare money if there is no one working to supply it. Besides we can afford SP 45. Blacks can get skin cancer the same as whites. They just don’t realize it. The sun makes no difference in the color it is radiating. You just don’t need a sun tan and think that dark skin will protect you. Sorry, you best part with some welfare money and get some SP. That is Whitese for Sun Protection.

      I hate racist bullshit. Where do you live? Black people would be pissed by that comment. I live in a predominately black town, and they don’t want some rich white guy’s sympathy. So keep your self-righteous bull shit to yourself. RACE IS NOT the issue here. The issue is about a beautiful, intelligent who had something terribly wrong done to her. Don’t cause more grief for her family. The more media attention this case gets, the greater the chance that someone will see her picture and recognize her.

      It is so sad that there are such narrow minded people in this world. I agree that if Miss Holloway were black and poor, that the media probably would not give it the coverage that it is getting now. I believe this because here in Birmingham (where Miss Holloway is from), there are two other individuals that disappeared right around the time that Miss Holloway did. One is a black female that works at a local hospital. She was kidnapped on her way to work and has never been seen or heard from since the beginning of May. The second individual is a black male that is a middle school principal. He has been missing since the end of May or the beginnning of June. The news media has not interrupted any regularly scheduled programming to update viewers of developements in either case (I know for a fact that there have been significant leads in the case). However, the fact that Miss Holloway is an American missing under questionable circumstances is the issue that all should be focusing on instead of what color and social status she holds.

      This website just proves how ignorant and incompetent some people are. I personally feel that all the racist bastards on this site will rot in hell. On a side note, yes, it’s very unfortunate about what has happened to this young girl, and my heart goes out to her and her family. But let us not forget, she was drunk and dancing on tabletops the night that she went missing. I personally feel that this “Smart Intelligent, Beautiful, and Rich” young woman was given too much freedom from her parents (by being allowed to go to Aruba at only 17 years old) and made some unwise decisions that night, which might have led to her unfortunate fate, but that’s just my opinion. Let’s just hope that this will be a wake up call for everyone. This incident of Natalee Holloway is not a race issue at all; it’s an issue of a missing American, that’s what needs to be focused upon. Now, sticking to the topic of this forum, I do agree that if Natalee were black and/or poor she would not have received the same media attention that she is receiving now. I feel that if she were any type of minority (Black, Hispanic, Asian, etc.) she would not have received as much attention because ignorant people (like some of the stupid ass racist bastards on this site) refuse to give minorities the same kind of attention and upper hand that they give to Caucasians, and it is those ignorant people who make this country the very sick and twisted place that it is today. Oh, and as tad bit of information, not all African-Americans, or any other minorities, are on welfare, most of US are doing very well on our own. I guess when ignorant, racist, bastards see that minorities are coming up in the world, and are slowly starting to out number them, they immediately begin to feel threatened, and they make stupid ass comments such as the ignorant ones posted before me.

      But that still didn’t give anyone the right to kill her and feed her ass to the sharks.
      I am so glad that nobody killed me when I got drunk and did stupid crap when I was 17. At my graduation party we had 4 16-gallon kegs, tapped all four of them bone dry, smoked fat ones all night long, rode on the hoods of cars going down the highway and by the grace of God, nobody died.
      Making unwise decisions when one is young and feel 10 feet tall and bulletproof is still no reason to kill them and dispose of their body.

    • Educated Black Female says:

      Did I even remotely say anything about her deserving to be killed (if that is even the case)? No I don’t think so. Maybe it is you that should stop jumping to conclusions about what I wrote. And whatever stupid decisions you made when you were 17 (jumping on cars, drinking kegs, and shit) is your business that I could care less to hear about. This is about Natalee Holloway, not your life. Lets feel sorry for her, not that your “still alive by the grace of god” for your stupid decisions. Please don’t attempt to inform me on your life, because from your ignorant response I could honestly care less.

    • LoftonNile says:

      As a proud African-American male, I find many of the preceding comments to be a dispiriting read. Any original resonance the authors may have intended to express regarding the subject of Natalie Holloway have been blurred by the need to react to statements, just as clouded by anger.
      I can only hope and dream that the African-American village would summon their resources, for me (from the welfare mother to Michael Jordan to Oprah to the Black media) the way the White village has come together for one of their precious daughters. There are sufficient resources in the A-A community to respond effectively to the majority of challenges which confront us. Complaining that white persons are insensitive to our needs is not one of them. Stop it.
      As a parent, I empathize with the Holloway family. I truly believe that the parents of Natalie Holloway would gladly trade places with me, a poor uneducated African-American male, if they could have one thing I have that they do not, right now. Their child.

    • Richard says:

      Ashley – I doubt if going to church and hanging out with a bunch of hypocrites would do much to soften my mood.
      Eddies91 – WTF did you smoke dude?
      LoftonNile – You have a very valid point about the original intention of my post having vanished. It usually does whenever anyone posts anything that even remotely resembling a RACIAL discussion. You have a few members of minorities that take offense and think by even mentioning it that I am treating them different, and for that I apologize. You have even MORE white people who refuse to recognize that there IS inequality in our country, and even more in other countries, and the slight mention of it raises hair on their back and they have to immediately jump on the defensive and call ME the racist.
      To those that say that if it had been a black girl from Alabama it would have gotten more attention, you don’t know what the fuck you are talking about. I will certainly admit that I am not always anywhere near 100% in my facts, but I would certainly check a wild remark like this. For example, how many of you know who Reyna Gabriella Alvarado-Carerra is and what happened to her? Or how about Chandra Levy? That was a really big case. Remember her? What about Sujey Alvarez, Abigail Louise Angel, Amanda Bailey, Ana Benitez, Amber Janae Branham, Nikki Evans Earnest, Sharnecia Monique Frazier, Bobbie Jo Glaze, Venus Grier, Rachel Lynn Harris, Julian Tiberius Hernandez, Jessica Jean Linderman, Kasie Lynn Mcguire, Rosa Perez, Nicole Marie Rockwell, Heaven Lashae Ross, Cameron Justin Smith, Natalie Dale Spruill, Darlene Nicole Tolbert, Fred Wright, Mary Jordan Wright? Want a hint? They are ALL CHILDREN FROM ALABAMA!! Where the fuck is FOX news reports on these kids, the list of which includes three hispanics and two blacks? THAT, my friends, is the whole point of the original post. It has absolutely nothing to do with Natalie Holloway, it has everything to do with the media, and the kind of people that clamor for that type of entertainment news and have to watch it for ANY development, no matter how insignificant.

    • whitelowermiddleclassfemale says:

      I think that if Natalee were rich, pretty, smart AND black (or hispanic, asian, etc), the media would dole out just as much attention. It’s because the family is rich, because she is a “model” student and also beautiful, not because she is white. Black or white, if she were poor, stupid and ugly, the media would not give her story the time of day.

    • LoftonNile says:

      Richard. As I stated on July 26th, we in the African-American village, of which I am a proud member, must assume control of the crises which plague us.
      I, by no means, am an historian, but any casual observer of past human events may distinguish that there are very few cultures, races or religions which have not suffered horrifically from injustice. Mans inhumanity to man, unfortunately, are a major part of the human story.
      The questions I pose to myself and the rest of the African-American village are; what is the common denominator used by those cultures, races and religions which allowed them to overcome? Which of these tactics can we implement in confronting some of our issues? What unique strategies can we create and build upon?
      The Asian, Latino and White communities are too busy working these tactics for themselves, to be focusing on us complaining to them that they are not also doing it for us as well.
      It is WELL within our realm of aptitude to do for ourselves what others have accomplished.
      Racism exists. Always has, always will.
      The successful Polish person will always be looked upon by some as a Polok. The Russian a Commie. The Asian a Chinc. The Latino a Spic. The African a Nigger. The list goes on.
      Name calling does not diminish achievement. Create a cure for cancer, eliminate dependence on fossil fuels or unite the African, Black man. Respect will come. Most importantly, for yourself.
      May God soothe Natalie, all the persons Richard mentioned and the suffering of the world.

    • Diane says:

      “The Asian, Latino and White communities are too busy working these tactics for themselves, to be focusing on us complaining to them that they are not also doing it for us as well.”
      As a member of the white community, what is it that the white, the Latino and Asian communities are supposed to do FOR the black community?
      Please elaborate.

    • Richard says:

      LoftonNile – I agree 100%. Just to use him as an example, Bill Cosby has been telling blacks to get off their ass, and do something for themself, and getting blasted for it by people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. I happen to agree with him, but it doesn’t matter whether I do or not because I am not a member of that minority (which is pretty close to losing the “minority” distinction).
      Diane – Not a damn thing. The best thing that you and I can do as members of the so-called “white community” is to just mind our own business. As an employer, I have seen a lot of people of all different races come to work, some grow in their jobs, some get promoted, and some self-destruct. The same can pretty much be said for anything else in life as well. Let the sorry fuckers who aren’t willing to work and further themselves in life (no distinction on any color or race here) self-destruct. As long as I don’t have to support their ass on welfare through the government taking my hard-earned money at gun-point, I could care less. I prefer to see people succeed though. It’s better for them, for the economy, and the country as a whole.

    • Joran Vander slute says:

      I think that this case is way to overpublicized, yes she is white but regardless the fact of the matter is not race simply her parents have financial bank to support this ongoing investigation. I will admit that many blacks are poor and could not afford the investigation therefor would not make the news, which is unfortunate not racist. But in this case, she is dead, there is no evidence, yet, and no case. So we need to stop speculating and making it news when it is not: the news as it was 2 months ago is some girl is missing, the three guys she was last with are denying any involvement in her disappearance, and there is no evidence that we know of. Thats the news. Also, I am sick and tired of hearing about the bs that has evovled around this case like all the racist blacks who try and make whites look as if they are truly racist when in fact blacks are more racist to whites than vice versa. We all know that, they are unable to accept that there are more prominant whites in America who have more money, more fame, more power but thats how life is…the minority is usually not going to be at the top of the barrell and since there are more whites there are more rich whites it makes sense dont hurt your brains thinking about it, its the truth not some racist charge (I as a white male) am making.

    • Yes says:

      ragardless of how you feel about this issue, remember that a person is still missing or even dead.
      it’s not natalee’s fault that you have issues with the way things are publicized.
      it would really be a shame if natalee’s parents came online and the first result that comes up for them to see is “fuck natalee holloway.”
      how would you like if all these sites came up that said “fuck all you n*ggers?”
      you wouldn’t like it. but complaining and hurting other people won’t help you. do something constructive about it.
      whining and complaining that people hate your skin colour only annoys people, and makes them want to help you less.

    • Chas says:

      Wasn’t this debate started by Richard, or someone intelligent; about why the News Media cares about a few missing children and doesn’t give a damn about the rest?
      The goal of the News Media is to get Democrats elected to office. They couldn’t care less about any missing kids.
      They will “throw in” a few cases of missing children to attract viewers and readers. It’s a token thing.
      The goal of the News Media right now is to make sure that Hillary Clinton is our next president. It’s a done deal. She will be president in 2008.

TELLING SOMEONE TO GO BACK TO WHERE THEY CAME FROM IS REALLY STUPID.

SO IF THEY WANT TO STAY HERE THEN THEY HAVE EVERY RIGHT JUST AS ANYONE ELSE WHO IS HERE. IF YOU DON’T LIKE THEY WAY THINGS ARE THEN SPEAK UP AND OUT BUT DON’T MAKE THE WELFARE CHECK A AFRICAN AMERICAN CHECK OR MINORITY CHECK BEACAUSE THERE ARE JUST AS MANY WHITE WELFARE MOMS GETTING A CHECK AS WELL AS MINORITIES WHO DON’T DESERVE THE CHECK CAUSE THEY SIT AT HOME AND LIVE OFF THE GOVERNMENTS, I SHOULD KNOW I WORK AT MY LOCAL DHS OFFICE AND THE WAY PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE BLACK WOMEN WHO IS PREGNANT AND MISSING AND SAYING THERE IS ONE LESS CHECK TO SEND OUT ARE SICK PEOPLE. IF YOU LOVED ONE WAS MISSING WOULDN’T YOU WANT SOMEONE TO LOOK FOR THEM???? YES, AND ITS MY TAXES PAYING THE GOVERNMENT TO LOOK FOR YOUR MISSING LOVED ONE OR ANYONE ELSE MISSING AND I AM NOT COMPLAINING. IF YOUR SO IGNORANT THAT YOU HAVE TO HIDE BEHIND THE INTERNET TO EXPRESS THAT YOU ARE A RACIST, THEN PLEASE DON’T WASTE OUTR TIME, BECAUSE NO ONE REALLY CARES.

      What about the fact that she left at night alone probably drunk with guys she didn’t know…..we watch reality and saw ‘classes of these girls’ in high school……we know the deal.

      For the individuals on this page that have turned this into a racial issue, I just want to say may god be with you because in your next lifetime, your sad pathetic judgemental retarded asses are going to be exactly what you judge everybody else as…who said that all of the other individuals that have gone missing in Aruba or anywhere else had family, or friends, or were ever known to be missing..She is getting news coverage faggots because she was loved, yes she is gorgeous, blonde hair, blue eyes, etc.,etc., but if looks mattered then an ass of actors would not have jobs, she had a family that cared, and put it out there for the world in case she pulled some runaway bride/graduate shit..Have all you narrow minded fucks forgotten the education that America teaches in school, or have you graduated and moved onto “better things”? In America if a civilian goes missing outside of American boundaries it is an act of terrorism until proven otherwise. This could be a nationwide threat for all you know and all you morons can consider is her hair, skin, and eye color. That is really sad, and I deeply have sympathy for your children, as they will probably be as closed minded as the rest of you. Instead of being a nation that pulls together in time of concern to show compassion, fucks like you have to be jealous and judgemental..I’m sure hoping that some of the SPECIAL ED comments I read a moment ago did not come from anyone in my generation, as we oppose this whole racial arguement, and have pretty much created our own race, which is one of many colors, it’s a rainbow, the one’s that made this into a racial issue, they’re just jealous because they are either white with a big ass head or whatever else. In case you haven’t noticed all the mixed up race individuals are the prettiest one’s walking around..Don’t hate cuz Natalie’s more beautiful than any female you could have ever met, you should be hurt that she’s gone because pretty soon all you kkk peices of shit aren’t going to have any decent white ass out there..and I beg to differ if she was poor and black I think she would have still gotten the same attention because her family would have loved her no less..And for the bitch that said all black people should go back to africa and die, you should go back to hell and burn, oh my bad you will! In case you forgot America was once the melting pot, There are no thoroughbreds in the USA, they are all across seas in other countries like China and Italy, and I personally am ashamed to be living in a country where the public consensus is over whether a person was white or black instead of dead or alive..I’ve heard everything from she is still alive to her cum filled body is shark bait on this, but not one person in this who DAMNED country, not one, has said thank you to the man above that you haven’t lost someone so tragically..And as for this statistic about welfare checks, bitches you need to direct that to bush because as a single parent who is not on welfare, all of the nonrecovered tax money that we pay every year is going into his father’s unfinished business instead of our country’s “welfare”, so suck a dick you ass munches, I’m out!

My mother was a foster parent who got a black baby boy when he was three days old and ended up adopting when he was four. It took that look because of racial issues. He is now almost 14 years old and one of the sweetest kids I know. I am proud to say he is my brother. I am in no way “rich”. As it stands now I have no gas in my house, I have to boil water for my 9 year old son to take a bath and worry what I’m going to do when the weather gets cold because I can’t afford to pay the $800 bill to get it back on. I don’t mean to push my “sad” little story on here, I’m just trying to say that not all whites are rich or blacks are poor. Everyone is equal in God’s eyes and I try to deal with it. I not sure if the “Precious Doe” case, a four year old black girl found beheaded in the KC area, was aired alot anywhere else as it was here but because of all the airing it was solved and maybe that’s what they are trying to do? I just wish happiness and peace for everyone. If everyone felt that way we wouldn’t have news stories like this to begin with. What happened to “love thy neighbor” and “it takes a village to raise a child”? Can you see the difference the world would be if it were like that? I’m sorry if I offended anyone I just felt I needed to put my two cents in. Which would be all I could afford at this time!

      if she was black then she wouldn’t have much use for a suntan, if she was poor I seriously doubt she would be in aruba(goes for any poor person)

      Get over it the fact that she is white and comes from a good family does not mean that she deserved this to happen to her or that is the only reason anybody cares that is BS.
      Stop stirring the Shit it is way past old and no everybody is a racist although that is your motto for the pity you want from the entire world.

      what the hell does it matter whether she’s rich, poor, white, black, blue or green for that matter? She’s a human none the less. Everyone makes mistakes & her just cost her way more than some other peoples do. Her cae needs to be solved & justice be served. All you people bickering. Grow up. Thanks…

      While I do agree that white females seem to get more news coverage when they go missing, I don’t think it’s fair to say we would care less or not at all if “Natalie” was a poor, black female. What most people fail to realize is that these girls are in the news because they are missing….period! People need to understand the statistics of missing persons. Being in law enforcement I can tell you that most are children. The next biggest group of missing persons are females, with blacks and caucasions being the top 2 races. Of these stats, 48% of cases are black 34% caucasion. 86% of the black cases are usually solved within the first 2 weeks, compared to the 72% of caucasion. Most of these cases do recieve local coverage. National coverage is usually only for the few that are not solved within a few weeks or are minor children. If you understand the stats, then you can understand why it looks as if white females get more coverage.
      Natalies case has recieved so much coverage because she is still missing and the fact that it happened outside the United States. The biggest draw for the media is sadly to say not the fact that Natalie is still missing , but of the fixation on the Aruban government and the differances in judicial proceedure.
      Let’s not make this issue about race, let’s make it about what it is…a missing person!

      Your right with stupid comments about not caring for the blacks remarks like that make your names. Stupid and Black.

    • RJ says:

      HONESTLY IF THIS HAD BEEN
      A BLACK GIRL AND MURDERED
      IT WOULD HAVE BEEN ONE OF
      HER OWN RACE WHO DID IT
      BECAUSE ALL YOU BLACKS
      EVER DO IS KILL ONE ANOTHER.

      Hey RJ. Catherine Woods who is a white and was recently murdered on 11/27/05 by one of her two boyfriends, who are whites, is being portrayed in the media as a beautiful young all-american girl full of life and potential, who happened to be a stripper, I mean exotic dancer. Now, there are two different names for women who do this type of dancing. If you’re a Black woman, your a stripper or lap dancer, etc. If you’re a White, you’re an exotic dancer or performing artist. The whites who murdered this all american girl are not thugs or youths. They are “misguided young men from upstanding all american homes” for whom I must spend my tax dollars to place in a comfortoble country club institution for young misguided whites who committ crimes. Blacks who commit crimes go to “prisons”. I’m not going to say the following: All you whites ever do is kill one another or rub your private body parts on a pole for dollars. Or that there seems to be differences in the media’s portrayals of whites who commit crimes and blacks who commit crimes. By the way RJ. Did you here the latest. There is a movement by the whites to boycott Aruba to protest the missing princess Natalie. Are the whites also going to boycott the country of america for the unsolved murder of a Black 12 year old who was hanged by skinheads in Washingto State. Oh beautiful, for spaceous skies…
      Hey RJ. Lets discuss the white who sprayed his mother’s ashes on the football field of the Philadelphie Eagles. This comming sunday there will be spit, blood and who knows what other body excretions all over her beloved soul. I’m not going to say all whites are stupid because of the actions of one white.

      You know all this is pretty sad. We are all human beings created by the same God. We may live differently from one another but we all have feelings. I think we all need a little more compassion for one another. You know it is sad that we all can’t get along and try to work together. We need to look around at what we have and be thankful. Oh by the way, I am a white female and I have plans to go to Aruba in February. I think no mater where you go, you have to use common sense. Hope you all have a great day! Oh by the way, my father always told me people who have to use vulgar language when they speak or write has a lack of vocabulary!

      People–think about this question—Waht if this were your daughter who was missing? Regardless if she were white, black, hispanic rich or poor, Beth Holloway-Twitty’s daughter is missing and the facts of the matter are the government of Aruba BOTCHED this investigation from the vary beginning. Stop focusing on “If she were Black would anyone care”. Natalie needs to be found, dead or alive so her mother can have peace of mind, justice can be served and everyone can get on with there lives. And by the way, I am not only an Afro-American, but I have a daughter and if she came up missing—I sure as hell would not be sitting on my butt waiting for the government of Aruba to help. I would have been kicking the rear ends of the father and his jackass son until I got some answers to the whereabouts of my child.

      Hey everyone! This page sure is sick!! All you!! First of all-this page turned into conversations about typos, racism, calling a helpless, missing and probably dead girl….so on and so forth. Wow! You all can’t stay on subject. I got a new cat for Christmas. Haha..Just kidding. So the point here is that, I just want you all to put yourself in this situation.. Black, white or polish….if your kid was missing…would you want them to call her a crack ho/whore and say stuff like who cares, what about everyone else?? and be racist about the entire situation?? NOO!!!!!!!!!! Youd want them to be compassionate and caring…Like so many people have been. But not you guys. You all are what screws this country up!! Like that person said..Thats why all those other countries hate us, because we hate ourselves. SO LEAVE IF YOU CANT BE CIVIL.
      Love you all,
      Brit XOXO

    • brit says:

      By the way-you all swear a lot!! You all sound filthy!!! BATHE! and uhh-you dont just sound like heathens but you sound ignorant when the only words you know are the *F* word and all the other ones. Anyone need Christian counceling…contact me!!!

    • sick wit it says:

      I think it real pathetic that the lot of you are arguing over the fact that it is because Natalie Holloway is white that she is getting so much attention. Ignorant people, Natalie’s mother has put his in the face of the media.This woman is screaming wherever she is heard until she finds out what happened to her daughter.It is called “A MOTHERS LOVE”This is what a mother does when something bad happens to her off-spring. Get a damn clue. I have to listen to all the BS about Martin Luther King, his wife and other historians and celebtrate a day because he got shot standing up for what he belived in when my for fathers birthdays got bunched together and one of them set your asses free, so take your racial BS and STUFF IT UP YOUR FAT BLACK _ s s!!!!

    • sick wi it says:

      oh sorry put HER face, don’t want to be criticized over an error

    • sdgirl says:

      i agree with ccrchick, if youre in foriegn land keep your legs closed. Local girls who do it at least know who they are dealing with.
      Also even if she were a different race OTHER than White (Mexican, Islander, Filipino) no one would have cared. Its not always a black and white issue.

    • Richard says:

      Very true. It’s more of a white and non-white issue. I mainly stated “black and poor” to bring my point to light.

    • jasmine says:

      Well, I was reading the comments made in here and i just couldn’t believe it. I originally got sidetracked to this page, because i was looking for research on my Cultural diversity class paper. I can’t believe what i am hearing or reading for that matter!! It is just ridiculous. I am multiracial, and i don’t have a preference for black or white, but when blacks tell me that white people feel a certain toward them, i didn’t realize it was to such a degree. This page really opitimizes the ignorance and racist mentality or white people. I don’t see any black people on the page displaying negative comments to the extent that whites did. You all are very bitter. Have any of you ever seen the movie Crash? You might want to see it. ANd while, i hate to admit it…blacks usually are the ones that murder fellow blacks. But that goes the same for whites. WHite people murder their own people also. Feel free to give yor racist comments i’ve heard them all of my life.

    • Richard says:

      I tend to agree with you there. It is amazing to me that the post itself at the top of the page, in entirety included a title and one sentence, could garner so many ignorant comments.
      I still stand by my original statement, which while not stated expressely, was that the mainstream media nor the American Public would care a whit if Natalee (I mispelled her name in the original post) were ANY ‘minority’ AND poor.
      There are quite a few ignorant people that replied to this thread. I have found though, that the racial prejudices come from both sides, ignorant white people making assumptions about blacks, and blacks making assumptions and thinking that they are owed something for their treatment. Certainly not all people are like this, but enough to keep the prejudicial fires burning.
