Black Girl Missing...

As we all know, media coverage for missing persons is skewed towards young white females who are perceived as attractive. Often times the media completely ignores a missing black woman, attractive or not, regardless to her contributions to her community what she means to her family. I will not get into the obvious implication of value placed on the lives of white women vs blacks. I will say let's make enough noise. Luckily, I found out about this young lady because this is circling in the Nigerian-American community. I can only imagine how many other missing Black women I don't know about.

Let's change this today.
If you know anything about the whereabouts of Tosin Oyelowo call your local police department or alert the city of Charleston, SC Missing Persons department at 843-577-7434 or email Detective K. Stone of the Charleston Police Central Investigations Missing Persons Unit StoneK@charleston-sc.gov
