Most of us missed this

A lot of us missed it.

A black woman in West Virginia was kidnapped, beaten and sexually abused by white people, who said, according to police reports, her abusers told her "that's what (they) do to n------."


We were too busy talking about Britney Spears' awful performance and post two-kids frame to talk about this.

I'm almost ashamed to say I even missed it. I didn't find out until today.

It's amazing how a bunch of empty nothingness, like Spears' performance or the latest Lindsey Lohan saga, can take over the news. People (especially me) want to know about celebs and their outrageous doings, but I guess we need to find a way to balance it all.

What do you think?

I actually saw this headline yesterday, but didn't read the story. I don't know why I skipped past it, but I got the full story this morning. This is a really horrifying crime. It's like something out of some sick torture movie.

Absolutely disgusting. I'm speechless.
