Disappearance of an 18-month-old black boy has yet to grab widespread attention
Despite detectives’ pleas to national media, the disappearance of an 18-month-old black boy with the wide smile has yet to grab the widespread attention given to other missing children’s cases. Some advocates say the reason why may be as simple as the toddler’s gender — and his race.
From the still-unsolved slaying of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey more than 15 years ago to the disappearance and killing of 2-year-old Caylee Anthony, the public has watched with rapt attention as many cases involving young children unfolded, often over many months. Yet Amir Jennings, the little boy who hasn’t been seen since he was captured on surveillance video with his mother in South Carolina nearly a year ago, has registered as scarcely a blip on the nation’s consciousness.

BOOST. let’s find this baby.
DON’T BE A BUTT REBLOG

Remember that fake alert about a Canadian child going missing “three minutes ago”? That post had over 20,000 notes. Just saying…

There was an article about this child (and the others like him) in our paper yesterday. In our paper that STILL reports anything and everything about Jon Benet Ramsey, since her murder was local.
This willful obfuscation happens all the time. It’s sickening. It happens from babies to college - if you’re a missing person of color, you’re just not newsworthy. UGH.

God, just LOOK at this baby.  It looks like another Anthony-type situation (based on the sketch we have in that news article), and this is just. Horrifying.  Moreso because I am hearing about it on fucking TUMBLR and not CNN.
