I live in Cincinnati. Scores of people are killed in Cincinnati every year. Field tells us that his hometown is nicknamed 'Killadelphia' because over 300 people were murdered last year. Yet, I don't see these hundreds of murder victims splashed on the television screen around the nation. Do you have any thoughts why the value of solving the murders of the two young blue-eyed blondes is more important to the MSM than the hundreds of murder victims in Cincinnati or Philadelphia?
The same thing seems to happen when young blue-eyed blondes go missing. CNN is still doing entire shows on the young woman named Natalee who went missing over a year ago. Oddly enough, when a Black woman goes missing ... there is nothing but silence from the MSM. Over the past three months we have seen the following situations in the Black community:
- A pregnant woman that was due to give birth on Feb. 14
- A 15 year old abducted by a 20 year old sex felon
- Four children from Alabama abducted by their non-custodial mother from their separate foster homes
- Three children abducted by their father and is said to be in extreme danger
Deidra reminds us that there are still a LOT more missing and a LOT more that need our help. As such, perhaps it is time for all Villagers to begin to beat our own drums ... to keep ourselves informed ... to spread the word ourselves. Perhaps it is time for us to remember that these Black women are missing, but not forgotten.
Any other thoughts on action we can take for the growing number of Black women being abused, abducted or killed? What say u?
