First of all, I was amazed to learn of the Rilya Alert, which is like the Amber Alert and does not seek to replace it, but instead it aims to be an extension of it for non-white children who are -as we clearly see- extremely under represented in the media as well as by government officials, despite the fact that an overwhelming number of kids missing are not white. You can check out Rilya Alert here.
Forprofit media is -not surprisingly- giving no play to this issue happening in
If you know the history of America, the history of Washington D.C., the history of hate and racism America was founded on, it shouldn’t be too hard to understand when a country has a foundation of hate still holds on to that hate, for some reason.
Perhaps that’s because it is virtually impossible to having a good, moral society sprout from a country built on racism, slavery and the slaughtering people for their land. Not to mention all of you who celebrate it every year in November.
The trends and laws that are of this country are all biased, many of them based originally in racism, the text and wording changed, noting more, as I will be speaking about soon.
As I said, America was built on racism and it is still run on racism. Before Black men and women were forced and not paid to build the inside and outside structures of the buildings so many American’s admire, the entire district was a slave market.
Many held Black women, men and children in slave pens which I’ll be reading about in a video shortly. That same racist history would repeat itself over, and over, and now today it is still doing so in the case of Black and hispanic children being stolen.
But why? And how can so many children all at once or even over the span of a couple days even a week go missing and no one in the media or national government make sure this is breaking news and each missing person, especially the children, should have their faces plastered on the front of every media station in America.
As to the why, I have my own fear on that I may speak on later, but for now, please read the below information to help bring awareness to this extremely terrifying happening which of course is still going yet if the government had its way it’d never be known.
That is a scary thought; a petrifying thought…How many untold horror cases are there in this country…both historical and not…

Black and Missing works with law enforcement officials nationwide, the Justice Department, and related stakeholders to spotlight missing persons of color. The organization provides vital resources to families, delivers educational training on personal safety, and more.
Derrica Wilson, a law enforcement veteran, said while many cases involving missing White women tend to garner publicity and sympathy, Black America’s missing sons and daughters, mothers, fathers and elders, are often obscured or ignored.
“We know Blacks and Latinos or any persons of color who go missing, oftentimes don’t receive much-needed media coverage, which could drastically increase the odds of their safe recovery,” said Wilson.
