Why Girls of Color Missing in America, is Never a Crisis, Because It’s a Problem We Can Guiltlessly Ignore

Random notes on what being Black in America really entails

There is an epidemic. The status has been escalated mainly due to the uproar on social media. Let’s face it — if we were still partying it up in 1999 — there would be no need to address the fact that 14 Black girls vanished within a 24-hour period.

I mean just imagine how fucked up we would be if 14 White girls were declared missing without a trace.

The entire country would be in lock down mode, as the search for answers devours our timelines with the urgency that should be assigned when a crisis rears its ugly head with no warning.

The president you elected has bills!

He’s in major debt and until he pays it all off — people of color will continuously have to contend with the idea of being knifed to death in the streets of Manhattan, and all the other goodies that come with walking a tightrope and hoping that you fall away from the bullshit.

Yeah! Hanging with my peeps!

You can guiltlessly wonder how the cries for missing Black girls ended up in your feed and politely dismiss it the way you would anything that doesn’t match your selected preferences.

Okay, I’m going on and on and I could honestly go on forever.

Just like the good ole days.

As of late, we are being made to believe that the #MissingDCGirls isn’t necessarily an alarming phenomenon because according to the Metropolitan Police Department — the decision to increase the usage of Twitter to help publicize these cases — inadvertently set off a false alarm.

This is what being Black in America entails.

No Amber Alerts or clickbaiting fodder from media outlets that are desperate to capitalize on how or why young girls are disappearing at a rate that could ruin the plan to Make America White Again.
