The black and brown girls missing in Washington D.C. remind me of how missing black women were treated on the opposite coast.
If a photo stays up on their missing websites for so long, the residents in any given area should be putting police feet to the fire.
The citizens in the area need to find a way to make sure police do not characterize black and brown girls as runaways until the girl has either been
(3) or the police have a witness willing to provide a written statement that the girl ran away.
If the police have any one of those three things, then the photo should come off the website, right? This seems obvious to me.
If not, then an Amber Alert should be issued just like it is for white people, just as fast as it is for white females.
Chanel Dickerson deserves our thanks.
