This may be old news, but I did not know thisCry

That's an awful lot of negroes and latino's unaccounted for...


Published on May 13, 2013

The news this past week has been dominated by the amazing escape of three women from a real-life house of horrors in Cleveland, Ohio. Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight vanished between 2002 and 2004. We now know they were kidnapped and held in sexual bondage for a decade. 52-year-old Ariel Castro is being held on three counts of rape and four counts of kidnapping. His bail is being set at $8 million. And, of course, is [it] relates to the kidnapping, one of those involved a child who authorities believe is his daughter.

Now, one of the tragedies in this case is they were hidden in their own neighborhood by someone the community knew and interacted with on a regular basis. According to the FBI, more than 65,000 minorities were reported missing in the United States in 2012. Let me say that again. 265,000 minorities were reported missing just in 2012.
Unfortunately, these missing people of color don't get the same kind of attention that missing white people get, especially white women. And we are grateful that the young women in Cleveland are free. We can't help but think of those who are black and still missing.

We're talking about that today with Derrica Wilson, founder of the Black and Missing Foundation; and Tina Frundt, a survivor of kidnap and sex trafficking and founder of Courtney's House, an organization that helps victims and their families.

No, they don't, they care more if a guy says gorge and what clothes they wear vs when they are a potential victim or their family could be a victim.

Not surprising... we only get coverage when it's an adorable child.

The rest of us better cross our fingers and pray.

From where I see it, there is coverage when it is a white child.

Another BHM exaggeration.

The Commentator clearly said there were 265,000 missing MINORITIES in the country in 2012 ... not 265,000 Black people!

72% of the US population is White - all the rest (28%) of the country are minorities (Black, Indian, Spanish etc)! Duh!

I don't ever see coverage even then. Majority of the time when I find out about a minority missing child it's through somebody posting pics about it on FB.
