There were 501 cases of missing teens, many of them Black or Latinx, in the D.C. area over the last three months. 22 of those cases remained unsolved as of March 22nd.
Why is so little national attention devoted to their cases? The disconnect between how the media reports about violent crimes against white women versus women of color is incredibly problematic, particularly when you consider that about 40% of all the missing people in the U.S. are people of color.
