Media: Race Games

One of these kids is not like the others,
One of these kids doesn't belong.
Can you tell which kid is not like the others
By the time we finish our song?


1) Elizabeth Smart
2) Ashleigh Moore
3) JonBenet Ramsey

Did you guess which kid was not like the others?
Did you guess which kid doesn't belong?
If you guessed this kid is not like the others,
Then you're absolutely...right!


Oddly appropriate that the lyrics to the Sesame Street song works here.

If you guessed 2, then you are right. The bigger question is why did you guess two?

Just like the other two, Ashleigh has been kidnapped. Just like the other two, she's been missing for quite some time.

Unlike the other two, there has been no media outcry about her. Unlike the other two, she is African-American.

Are those two things related?

Bonus Question:

Supply the name of the missing Mexican-American pregnant women from the Bay Area of San Francisco who washed ashore lately. (Hint: it's not Laci)


Correct answer: Evelyn Hernandez was pronounced missing on May 1st of this year. Police suspect foul play.

Unlike Laci, there has been no national media outcry about her. Unlike Laci, she is Mexican-American.

Are those two things related?
