Black Women Are Disappearing All Over the Country; They’re Taking Our Greatest Natural Resource

What would the world be without social media? If we left it up to primary news outlets would we know that black women were vanishing out of thin air at alarming rates? They aren’t finding bodies and there are no gang associations. These are girls as young as twelve simply not coming home from school. Over 10 black women in Washington DC and Baltimore have gone missing in the past several months.
Black men may have been the face of the Civil Rights Movement but it was black women that were the backbone. When those men were locked up or shot or on the road 300 days out of the year it was black women that were dealing with the consequences of what their men were doing. It was black women that raised the children and had to be strong for everyone at those funerals.
Not much has changed in 2017.
Black women are the black man’s greatest natural resource. No matter how much we continue to devalue them or fight with them they love us. They will go to war protecting us, stand on the front lines protecting us. When we cry, they cry with us, look us in our eyes and tell us “Get up! You can do this!” Even when we don’t deserve it.
Other men have always craved our women. They love their spirit and their bodies and it kills them the way they are so loyal to black men. Now they’re taking them and light is the key to fighting darkness. Pay attention to the women around you, to their patterns.
Sex trafficking is at an all-time high. With the internet making it easier and easier for men and women with ill-intent to creep around. I’m not sure what is happening to this women but I do know that if ten blonde haired, blue eyed women between 14-23 disappeared out in the suburbs the world would have a manhunt on their hands.
The FBI can commit resources to finding a Super Bowl jersey but when it comes to finding black girls, not so much.
