What About the Men Slain on St. Thomas

Dear Source,
I am an African-American. I follow the news very closely. I honestly have heard nothing about this incident.(See "Friends and Family Gather to Mourn and Remember Slain Men"
But I am sick and tired of hearing about Natalie Holloway (the white girl who is missing in Aruba.) I have heard something on the news everyday since she has been missing. It is shameful to think that America has no more thoughts for their own African-American citizens than that. I do have sympathy for the Holloway family, but I do think more could have been done to show the same empathy and sympathy for the two African-American men also.
