Hate Crime Stabbing? Media Silent On Death Of Valaree Schwab

16 year old Valaree Schwab, who reports say had been a constant victim of bullying in her school, was stabbed and killed by Z’Inah Brown after Valaree tried to fight her and a group of tormentors off. This happened in New Rochelle, New York on January 10. Mass media has been silent on this case. Why is that?

Had the roles been reversed there would be non stop media attention. Civil rights groups would be organizing marches for tolerance, mandatory diversity classes in the school would be demanded, there would be hate crime investigations and so on. But instead her story is virtually unknown. This needs to change.
