Cases Of Missing Black Women Continue To Be Ignored

There is a groundswell of criticism growing about the number of Black women who go missing every year. According to the National Crime Information Center, White women are the ones who get the most attention when they go missing. The FBI reports that in 2010, of the 273,985 minorities reported missing in this country, 85 percent were Black. The Black & Missing Foundation, Inc. (BAM), a non-profit organization whose mission is to bring awareness to a problem, states that most Black women disappear in New York, Georgia, North Carolina, Maryland, and Florida. Since the organization was launched in 2008, it has helped to either locate or bring closure to 71 missing persons cases. This January alone, the organization helped find six people, and all were found alive.
