    • Missing White Woman Syndrome

      The scene where the man is discussing to the media the girl who died in the bus crash, and the media's reaction afterward is a reference to the term missing white woman snydrome (or MWWS for short). MWWS is described as disproportionate media coverage of missing or murdered young white female victims, whereas stories about men or older women or non-white women or other news stories receive less attention. An excellent example of MWWS is the disappearance of Natalee Holloway, the young girl who disappeared in Aruba in 2005.
