Check out this article on Mom Logic about media bias as it relates to race and missing children. I really appreciate their mention of the good works by Black and Missing But Not Forgotten. A blog dedicated to those that are missing and black. Thanks for all you do, Deidra! Unfortunately, there are many who say they are dedicated to missing persons, but none focus on missing minorities in general.
As stated by the Media Bias article, "Thousands of kids go missing each day -- so why do we never seem to hear about the African-American children?" Great question, Mom Logic! Thanks for bringing this issue to the forefront.
