How are they? The stories of young Black Girls and women who are missing don't get the white girls like Elizabeth Smart or Natalie Holloway treatment. We don't see primetime television specials on them. Their images don't become permanent fixtures on Twitter. Their names don't get hashtags or trending topics. Nationwide man hunts or search parties don't ensue. crying Black parents , pleading for their children to be found. don't interrupt our sitcoms as breaking news. It appears that having blonde hair and blue eyes  and having white parents in Suburban America, make it far more likely that a story of a missing young girl will be told.
