It seems that while the American media has been busy reporting on the saving of brown women from brown men, they've neglected to do their homework. Jackson Katz criticizes the US media for failing to report the recent school shootings as violence against American women. He writes,
"Incredibly, few if any prominent voices in the broadcast or print media have called the incidents what they are: hate crimes perpetrated by angry white men against defenseless young girls, who -- whatever the twisted motives of the shooters -- were targeted for sexual assault and murder precisely because they are girls. What is it going to take for our society to deal honestly with the extent and depth of this problem? How many more young girls have to die before decision-makers in media and other influential institutions stop averting their eyes from the lethal mix of deep misogyny and violent masculinity."
Maybe someone should tell Nicolas Kristoff to indulge his rescue fantasies here at home. It seems he's needed. As we say, "Al akraboun awla bel ma'rouf" , which is Arabic for "butt out."
