Robin Williams versus Anna Nicole Smith

When porn star Anna Nicole Smith died from a drug overdose, she instantly became a media darling. She was all the media talked about for over a year. I’m sorry she died but I think the media over played her death. When we sadly lost Robin Williams to depression last August, the media only talked about him for a couple days followed by brief snippets of what happen in his final days and hours. Some people were outraged when the Marin County Coroner’s office stated the position of the body and what happened during his final hours and minutes during a heart wrenching press conference the day after his body was found. The black community was outraged because Robin’s untimely and unfortunate passing took one night and one day away from their new hero and media darling the black teenager who was shot and killed by a white cop. The cop claimed he shot the kid in self defense. Perhaps if Robin had been a porn star, his passing would have been over played by the media. No offense to porn fans, the black community or people who think stories about young blond women getting abducted and black teenagers who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time are more important than depressed celebrities who are so depressed they take their own life.
