We as a people are becoming too desensitized to situations like this. And what's worse is that many are assuming that the majority of these young women are runaways...falling right into the false narratives given by our oppressors. Even if they were so called "runaways", they are still Censored underage and missing!!!!! 

Exactly! Clap

There was a case 4 years ago where a D.C cop was arrested for pimping 15 and 16 year old girls. 

I don't trust anything that they say.

My hope is that this is not an issue of sex trafficking. 

On a side note, hopefully this will incentivize black women to start creating our own movement where we put OUR issues and things that adversely effect US first. The fact that the number of black (female) missing teens is disproportionate and rarely is talked about it a problem in of itself. 

White people and (yes) black men are not going to rally and fight for us. We have to start supporting each other, bringing awareness to these issues and fight for our daughters ourselves.

I believe black men in these communities and homes are part of the reason a lot of these girls ran away (the ones that actually did run away) in the first place. And black women that support and coddle these black men (not all, these in particular) r another part of the problem.

We know black girls in real life that had to runaway because of abuse at home that was ignored. Then they end up in the hands of pimps.

well, that white girl missing from TN - Elizabeth Thomas - was found in NorCal, so now maybe the fbi and the police all over the country will have some time available to search for the missing girls and now also boys and young men and women from DC *sarcasm*


by the way, this is from the article about Elizabeth Thomas' update:

Quote

Rep. Sheila Butt, a Republican state lawmaker who represents Columbia, said Thursday was a great day for her community.

“When something like this happens, a community gets together and feels like this is one of our children,” Butt said. “This just feels like our prayers have been answered, and the lost sheep is home.”


I guess no one feels like the black girls missing are one of their childrenConfused

Lost In the Uproar Over D.C.’s Missing Girls Is the Fact That Black Boys, Young Men Are Going Missing, Too


Just last month, disturbing reports of multiple Black teenage girls reported missing from the Washington D.C. area sparked a nationwide outcry and a concerted effort to bring them home safely.

Among the missing weren’t just girls, however. Black boys are missing, too.

The names and faces of at least five Black boys gone missing in the District since the start of this year have largely become lost in the hysteria and social media attention surrounding the missing girls. Teens Jakeem Pope, 16, and Tymel Wheeler, 15, have both been missing since the first week of April, while Zyaire Flemmings, 15, and Navaras Johnson 14, disappeared in late February. The whereabouts of 17-year-old Clayton Carter, who was reported missing January 11, also remain unknown.

The boys’ images have been circulated in far fewer places than the missing girls’, and social media posts containing pertinent information about them have been shared noticeably less often. Natalie Wilson, co-founder of the Black & Missing Foundation, explained this could be due to the assumption that boys are better equipped to look out for themselves, when that isn’t necessarily the case.

Moreover, she pointed to the fact that boys tend to go missing for longer periods of time than girls.

“I think the perception is that it’s unusual or uncommon for young boys to go missing,” Wilson told The Root. “We need to change that narrative because it’s not only our girls — our young men are being reported missing as well.”

There are a host of reasons that young boys disappear, she said, including mental health issues, parental abductions and running away from an unstable home. Child sex trafficking also has become a major issue in recent years.

“Sadly, many of our men and boys who go missing are killed,” Wilson added. “I’ve seen that in a number of cases, and we need to look deeper to find out what’s happening.”

Mayor Muriel E. Bowser announced the launch of a task force last month aimed at tackling the underlying issues that may lead to teens and missing children. As previously reported, Bowser’s efforts will increase the number of police officers assigned to locate missing children and implement a task force to determine what social services runaway and missing youths need in order to better stabilize their lives at home.

As of now, as many as nine Black boys and young men remain missing from the D.C. area, including Cherenet Assegid, 24, Dionte Monk, 23, Kejuan Sellman, 17, and Christian Muse, 24, who disappeared from neighboring Prince George’s County, Md., in 2012.

The DC Metropolitan Police Department didn’t respond to requests for comment.
