According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, of the estimated 613,000 people reported missing in the U.S. last year, about 60% were people of color.
Although black women make up less than 7% of the U.S. population, they represent about 10% of all missing person cases throughout the country. Estimates by the Black and Missing Foundation put the total number of disappeared black women and girls at 64,000.
And before you say anything I know that this happens to women of other ethnicities too!
